Prospect Profile: Thomas Davis

Thomas Davis School: Georgia
Ht: 6-1 Wt: 230 40: 4.67 Year: 4Jr

Bio: Full-time starter the past two seasons and an All-Conference selection as a junior after leading the team in tackles posting 81/1/4. Posted a career-high 138 tackles as a sophomore when once again he earned All-Conference honors.

Positives: Forceful, run-defending safety with good skill in pass coverage. Hard-hitting presence in centerfield who aggressively puts his shoulders down into opponents, wraps up at the point, and easily brings down ball carriers on initial contact. Defeats blocks up the field, hard hitting against the run and always willing to throw his pad into the mix. Does a fine job picking up assignments in zone and has adequate skills covering the slot receiver. Moves well laterally and packs a wallop at the point of attack. Works well with cornerbacks, solid skills moving sideline-to-sideline and displays a good degree of suddenness. Special teams demon who's blocked kicks in the past.

Negatives: Does not always take the best angles to plays. Occasionally indecisive and bites on play-action passes or moves up the field too quickly.

Analysis: A terrific football player with a great motor, Davis has tremendous size for the safety position and can be a devastating run defender. Offers great upside in a variety of schemes and much more than a one-dimensional prospect.
