If Davis is still sitting here at pick 131, then I would hope the Lions don’t overthink it and turn in the card with his name on it. Davis would fill a need for the Lions as they have no real depth behind the top two wide receivers Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones Jr.
Should they draft Davis here then he would likely go into the 2020 season as the number three wide-out on the depth chart, depending on how free agency works out. If he had a season to develop as the number four option, all the better, but either way he is worth this pick.
Davis was only at A&M for three years and only got significant playing time for the last two years. Over those two years, he has 99 catches for 1,201 yards and 11 touchdowns. He also ran the ball a handful of times for 45 yards at a clip of 5.6 yards per carry.
The worst thing about the Lions’ receiving corps is their non-ability to create separation. Drafting Davis would solve that problem pretty quickly.
"“Impressive control of his body, steps and breaks to sufficiently snap off his route stems and create significant separation… his route tree, exposure and techniques to create space in the secondary all suggest there’s notable next level potential”"
He also noted Davis’ long speed; how he can take the top off of a defense by blowing by all kinds of coverages, including press coverage. At the end of the day, Davis’ ability to create separation and use his speed successfully should let him make an impact from day one.
