Tyler Davis 40 Time
Projected 40 Time: 5.03 seconds
Davis is an interior defensive lineman for the Clemson Tigers, a position that fits him best in the NFL. He displays good quickness and acceleration to get off the block, and attack the ball upfield, as evidenced by our 5.03 projected 40 time. However, he does lack an elite ability to release and key the ball at the point of attack. Shows to have a good ability to find and attack gaps when rushing the passer, thanks to his ability to maintain a low pad level. With that being said, I would like to see him add an array of weapons to his tool belt in order to beat offensive linemen in 1-on-1’s. Possesses a solid ability to drive through offensive linemen, while also maintaining leverage over the ball carrier. Despite this, he displays an adequate contact balance in the trenches.
