Position: Wide Receiver
Career Stats: 165 receptions, 2,292 receiving yards and seven touchdowns.
Strengths: Geremy Davis is a big receiver who does a fine job of positioning himself for the catch. Davis does a nice job of winning jump balls and has an aggressive side that allows him to muscle it away from defensive backs. Davis isn’t the most polished blocker but can hold his own and makes an honest effort. Davis makes most of his plays on the outside but has shown he’s comfortable going across the middle. Davis has good instincts and positions his body well to make impressive plays near the sidelines. Geremy Davis works hard and comes with zero baggage.
Weaknesses: Geremy Davis doesn’t have great speed or quickness, which is why he’s usually making contested catches. Davis isn’t much of a playmaker after the catch and really struggles to create separation. Davis also doesn’t have great footwork. Davis had a hamstring injury that prevented him from running at the combine and has a slight history with foot injuries.
Projection: Geremy Davis is a receiver who will be selected in the later rounds but his height and flashes of physicality are intriguing. Davis has a hard time creating separation, which won’t change in the NFL, but he could fight for a roster spot and be an OK backup receiver on a team lacking depth.
