Sean Davis – CB/S, Maryland – 6’1″, 201 lbs
One player who had himself a day at the combine was Sean Davis. With plenty of spotlight surrounding the top defensive backs in the draft, Davis made a name for himself as someone to keep an eye on with his 40-yard dash (4.46, 9th), bench press (21, 1st), vertical jump (37.5, 7th), broad jump (10’6″, 5th), 3-cone (6.64, 1st) and 20-yard shuttle (3.97, 3rd).
Combine these numbers with the fluidity and smoothness he showed in the defensive back drills and you’re looking at a guy who has first-round talent. The reason for such little talk on him, however, is his tape. Davis lined up primarily at outside corner at Maryland and really struggled at times, specifically in man coverage. If moved to safety, however, Davis is capable of becoming a force with his physical attributes and willingness to lay the wood.
We all know Bob Sutton loves having as many versatile defensive backs on the field as possible, and Davis would provide a very intriguing option with huge upside. Don’t be surprised if the Chiefs select him between the second and fourth rounds.
