STRENGTHS WEAKNESSES

STRENGTHS: The powerful nose tackle possesses a NFL frame for the position along with long arms (33 2/8") and knows how to use them to his advantage. Is very quick off the snap and is not easy to block. He is strong as an ox and is well built overall. Uses his wide frame to get off the ball and has developed an impressive resume of pass rushing skills. Can anchor and be a hard object to move especially when he plays with a low pad level. Is able to shed blocks and locate the football.
WEAKNESSES: Davison gets covered up at times because of his lack of height. Has above-adequate ability but must get low and underneath offensive linemen's pads more consistently. Did not face the toughest competition in college but did practice well at the East-West Shrine Game. He tends to play upright too much.

IN OUR VIEW: A big-time talent who will need a year to adapt to the speed and talent of the NFL.

--Bo Marchionte

PLAYER OVERVIEW

Davison was recognized in 2014 with his third consecutive season with All-Mountain West accolades. He was a first-team selection in 2012 and a second-team honoree the following season. The former high school wrestling champion finished his career at Fresno State earning an invitation to play in the 2015 East-West Shrine Game and participate in the Scouting Combine.
A 38-game starter for the Bulldogs, Davison led the team in tackles-for-loss (13) and sacks (8) his senior season. He finished sixth on the defense with 61 tackles and has been a extremely productive interior linemen.

It was evident he would be an impact player for the Bulldogs his redshirt freshman after finishing with 16 tackles (most by non-starter from front four) and one sack. He continued to raise his level of play breaking out one year later when he captured first-team All-Mountain West honors.

Davison was close to unstoppable at times in the Mountain West and his appearance the performance at the East-West Shrine practices were a critical gauge that he can play with some of the top talent in the country. He was able to establish himself show flashes of what made him the player he was at Fresno State.

OVERVIEW
Played in 2015 East-West Shrine Game. Posted at least 40 tackles, 7 tackles for loss and 2 sacks for three straight seasons. Selected first-team All-Mountain West in 2014 after leading team in sacks with 8. Had slow start to 2014 season thanks to move outside, but came on after being moved back inside to nose guard. Selected second-team All-Mountain West in 2013 and first-team All-Mountain West in 2012. Football player and wrestler in high school. Nicknamed "Rhino" due to playing style.

PRO DAY RESULTS
40-yard dash: 5.19 and 5.14 seconds
ANALYSIS

STRENGTHS Built like a contestant in a strong-man competition. Has thickly muscled, long arms with big hands. Loves hand-to-hand combat inside. Uses club, rip, hump and push/pull techniques to beat defender. Has power to forcibly extract himself from block. Feels double team and braces outside leg and gets duck-footed to battle. Uses length to overcome lack of height. Relies on upper-body flexibility paired with explosion in his hips. Has quickness and "quick-win" capability to get after the quarterback and play on the other side of the line. Very tough at the point of attack and tries to impose his will on centers. Played 80 percent of the defensive snaps. Likeable with high character. High school wrestling background.

WEAKNESSES Can only play in a four-man front. Has power and athleticism but wasn't at his best against the best competition he faced early in the season. Struggles to change directions quickly enough in confined spaces and misses tackles because of it. Might need to add more weight to be able to hold up as a nose in the NFL. Some scouts believe he didn't give his best effort when asked to move to defensive end early in the season. Gets caught up in fighting man in front of him and will lose sight of the ball sometimes.

DRAFT PROJECTION Rounds 3 or 4

SOURCES TELL US "He plays too laterally to me. I know he's strong and all that but I want to see him up the field more and not just against the weakest parts of the schedule." -- NFC West scout

"When I study him, I see a disruptive tackle-splitter. He can't play in an odd front, obviously, but when he gets technique work, I think you could see him really take off." -- NFC area scout

NFL COMPARISON Kyle Williams (Bills)

BOTTOM LINE Davison is a powerful defensive tackle who has above-average athleticism and saw his overall production spike in 2014. He is well-conditioned and can play all three downs if called upon to do so. With his athleticism, balance and power, Davison has the potential to be an outstanding pro, but he must prove that he can bring those same traits into play against better competition.

"Two receivers to the left, Garcon to the right. Manning in the shotgun, puts Collie in motion. Looks in his direction...it's picked off! It's picked off! It's Tracy Porter again! He's runnin' free! He's gonna go all the way!
