Demario Davis Profile.....Welcome to NY Demario!!!
Seems like a great kid.
It's espn insider from Scouts Inc. so take it for what its worth. Just a little something to read about our new hybrid lb with 4.56 speed :cool::D
I can see rex using mostly 4 man fronts now which is really going to complement this personnel and I believe it'll be effective in getting to the passer aka Brady. I think we should be excited about our D-line with Ellis Pouha Wilkerson Devito Dixon etc. and a potential game changer in Coples and now speed behind the line with Demario. Welcome Demario Davis!!

[B]Durability[/B] 2 He has appeared in started in 37 consecutive games over the past three season to finish his career.
[B]Intangibles[/B] 1 Above-average special-teams contributor that will provide him time to take in coaching and develop as a player early on in career.

[SIZE="4"]OUTSIDE LINEBACKER SPECIFIC TRAITS[/SIZE]
[B]Instincts/Recognition[/B] 3 Overall instincts and diagnostic skills are adequate but still have a lot of room for development. Shows more awareness as a run defender at this point. Reads keys quickly and flashes natural playmaking instincts as a run defender. Can become overzealous and bite on play-action. He is late on occasion flagging crossers coming in and out of his territory when having underneath zone principles. Also would like to see more discipline with technique including showing more consistency with using proper shoulder to take on blocks and maintain gap integrity. Flashes ability to sniff out and react to screens.
[B]Take-on Skills[/B] 3 Flashes above-average quick-twitched explosiveness at the point of attack but needs work with technique. Plays with good pad level and natural leverage when aligned over the tight end and setting the edge. Can get engulfed by bigger and more massive blockers when locked in a phone booth. Needs development with hand usage when engaged but possesses quick hands to work with in this area.
Range vs. Run[/B] 1 "Possesses sideline-to-sideline range. Moves well lateral and shows a quick change of direction. Displays a quick short-area burst to fill down-hill once diagnosing the play. Closes extremely well once pointed in the right direction and can make up ground in pursuit. Angles are generally sound. First QTR tackle on Virginia Tech RB David Wilson is clear example of his overall range, he pursues from across the field and runs down Wilson who is regarded as one of the faster RBs in this years' class. "
[B]Tackling 4[/B] "Has a lot of upside in this area but needs to play more even keeled. Would like to see him tackle more under control and with better balance. Will come in too hot and high on occasion. Possesses the explosiveness to strike and deliver violent hit. However, too often look for the big hit and fails to wrap up. "
[B]3rd Down Capabilities 2[/B] Easy mover in space and covers a lot of ground in underneath zone coverage. Gets good depth with drops and can carry TEs and slot receivers to safeties at the third level. Also has enough athleticism to match up with most RBs and TEs in man coverage. Has experience playing with his hand in the dirt on third down situations as a pass-rusher. Times pressures well and flies through gaps. Lacks elite power to run through blocks at this point.
