Our scouting report on Jarrad Davis (6-1, 238): Didn’t have a great 2016 season, but Davis is still a solid all-around prospect, with great speed, instincts, leadership skills, and blitz ability. Leg injuries that forced him out of three games could hurt his stock.
STAT's scouting report: An oft-injured but highly instinctive, athletic and passionate linebacker, Davis is loved by scouts for his tenacity and versatility, but the risk/reward factor with Davis is higher than most linebackers. Undersized by some standards, Davis has shown a troubling tendency to get nicked up, missing multiple games over his career due to injury, including three games due to a hurt ankle as a senior and most of the 2014 season with a torn meniscus. Davis will provide his future NFL defensive coordinator with options as he possesses the speed and agility of a traditional 4-3 outside linebacker, as well as the instincts and toughness to handle inside duties.
