Pump The Breaks On Jordan Davis From Georgia

The NFL draft isn’t too far away, but one player who has been getting a lot of hype has been Georgia defensive tackle Jordan Davis. I simply don’t see why.

This happens quite a bit around draft season, especially among the people who don’t really scout players for the draft. The massive guy on a great team is instantly going to be amazing, that train of thought is fairly common among the average NFL fan. However, that simply isn’t the case with Jordan Davis. He’s not my best interior defensive lineman in the draft, and he’s not even the best one on his team!

I simply cannot see why people love Jordan Davis so much. He’s really a one-trick pony, and although he’s damn good at that trick, I can’t take him in the first round for it. He’s a damn good run stopper, I’d go so far as to say he’s an elite run defender. He just eats blocks, he eats double teams, he’s an immovable object (or just really damn hard to move). However, he offers legitimately nothing in the passing game and he played a very limited number of snaps in 2021. A player who is only a run defender (although elite), is hardly on the field, and isn’t even the best draft-eligible player at his position from his own school is supposed to be a first-rounder? Nope, Nah, you cannot tell me that.

Now as a second-round pick, that’s where I love Jordan Davis. He has great play strength, and finding a better run defender in this draft is hard to do. But he’d be a two-down defender. Like how the two-down thumping linebacker has become extinct, a player like Jordan Davis might follow the same path. I’m not saying that Jordan Davis won’t be good, I’m just saying the type of player he is is not a first-rounder
