Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. Auburn. 184. 87. Cornerback. JavarisDavis. player

Javaris Davis comes with a bunch of upside, and provides additional depth in an area of need for the Carolina Panthers.

Although the player is a little undersized for the NFL. Davis is tenacious and his competitive edge really stands out on film.

He might have trouble covering big receivers on the outside, but he could find a career as a slot cornerback providing he acclimatizes to the role in quick fashion. It is unlikely that Davis is going to command a starting spot in the near future. But he projects to be a good rotational player who can be an asset on special teams.

Davis has four good years of college play under his belt, securing two interceptions in each campaign. He also managed to bat away 25 passes thrown in his direction during this time.

Coming from such a well-respected program is going to stand the player in good stead. He will know what is expected of him going forward in the NFL and plays much bigger than his 5-foot-10 frame.

The prospect is not afraid to put his head down and launch into tackles. Something he will have to be a little more tentative when he gets to the next level. There is plenty to like about Davis’ play and taking him in the sixth round represents a low risk, high reward option for the Panthers.
