The one Texas defensive back that is not getting anywhere close to the amount of hype he deserves for the upcoming NFL Draft is a to-be redshirt senior cornerback in Davante Davis. Similar to Boyd, Davis reeled in two interceptions last year, but he wasn’t quite as big of a role.
This Texas secondary is very deep and it’s hard for some guys to get all the attention they deserve. That is the best way to categorize the situation Davis finds himself in at this moment. He’s definitely got the size that the NFL looks for from the prototypical cornerback now, at 6-foot-3.
He’s also starting to build the resume that he needs to have to back up any shot he has at getting selecting in the 2019 NFL Draft. If he can’t show anything extra this season, he’s likely to wind up as an undrafted free agent. That would be a shame considering the potential that Davis has at the next level.
Davis has also been one of the more consistent producers that flew under the radar over the past three seasons for the Horns. Find a way to get his stock trending up this fall with some career highs set for his already deep career stat line, and he’ll find himself as a massive riser up draft boards following the end of the 2018 campaign.
