Will fight for the ball and yards
While at UCF, Davis was in the conversation for the best receiver in the ACC. This was proven during different points in the season, particularly against UConn. In a three-touchdown game for Davis, recording 151 yards on 10 receptions, it was his first one of the day that put the conference on notice.
On a first-and-10 from the Knight’s 27-yard line, Davis lines up on the outside. When the ball is snapped, UCF quarterback Dillon Gabriel finds Davis on a post route. Hauling in the ball on the 50-yard line, Davis still has 50 yards to go if he wants to make it to the endzone. In a combination of hand-fighting defensive backs breaking tackles, Davis motors his way across the goal line for a 73-yard reception to increase UCF’s lead to 14-0.
When predicting how Davis will fit into the Buffalo Bills’ scheme, the fit almost seems perfect. Davis was a receiver who ran a limited route tree at UCF. Compromised of mostly ins, slants, posts and streaks, he was never one who faced a lot of contact. Be it that he was almost always on the sideline, quarterbacks would throw to him knowing that he would be able to fight for the ball, and if he was unable to haul it in, his aggressiveness towards making the catch could see the ball fall incomplete rather than being intercepted.
This will serve the Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen exceptionally well as if Davis is able to get deep enough for Allen to unleash his big arm, the duo could do tremendous things.
