High-Point the football
Highlighting his ability to high-point the ball is an example against Temple University in Davis’ 2018 season.
On a second-and-six from the UCF 18-yard line, Davis makes a spectacular catch along the left sideline. After the ball is snapped, Davis’ man is on him and rides him the entirety of the route. Once he is targeted and the ball is inches away from him, Davis jumps into the air.
While airborne, he rotates his body back towards the play and high-points the ball. While falling back to the ground, he completes a full 360-degree rotation and plants one foot inside the field of play while falling down the sideline.
Though you need two feet in bounds at the NFL level, Davis’ catch radius shown in this play is remarkable. Coming into the draft, there were some concerns about his ability to make plays after catching the ball, but his level of field awareness and ball-tracking almost cancels that knock against him.
The type of awareness and tacking ability that Davis has will mesh with Josh Allen exceptionally. This, given the fact that Allen can have an off throw from time to time, having the ability to make acrobatic catches will help him out along the sidelines.
