DB+

DT Raekwon Davis, 6’7”, 335 pounds, 33 7/8″ Arm Length

Signature Stat: Elite missed tackle rate at 3.3% in 2023… players don’t get out of his grasp

Contract Projection: 2 years, $8M, $4M AAV, $6 M GTD

Cover 1 Take: ENORMOUS frame, has played 63 of 66 career games, elite size hasn’t fully translated to upside hoped for when taken in 2nd round, but has been consistently available starting 1T with some ability to push the pocket.

Summary: A towering presence at true nose tackle, utilizing his size and length to dominate the line of scrimmage. While excelling in two-gapping, he maintains decent pad level and consistently disrupts plays with his first touch. Davis’s long arms allow him to wrap up ball carriers effectively, despite occasional positional leverage loss. His impressive wingspan clogs running lanes and makes him nearly unblockable against undersized centers. However, he lacks burst and explosiveness as an up-the-field defender and may struggle against double teams without linebacker support. Davis shines as a pass rusher, employing powerful moves like bull rushes to collapse the pocket. Overall, he’s a formidable force in run defense but primarily serves as a two-down defender. -Turner

Signature Skill/Trait: Block control
