Carlton Davis Draft Profile

Carlton Davis draft profile

Strengths:

  • Size
  • Length
  • Great press corner
  • Disruptive
  • Aggressive
  • Strong hands

Analysis: Carlton Davis has the ideal size and length you don;t see often in cornerbacks. He is bigger and longer than the average NFL cornerback with arms that dangle down his size. Parks himself in front of receivers in press coverage and uses wingspan to jam and blanket opponents. He crowds and bulls wideouts into the boundary. Searches for incoming throws once receiver makes his break. Tremendously disruptive. Plays high or low side of the route and attacks the throw with relentless timing and aggression. Davis was productive during his time at Auburn, he had double-digit passes defensed in each of his three seasons. Hands are like garden rakes dragging the football away from the receiver. Extremely difficult to feather touch throws over him downfield. Has experience guarding extremely athletic and talented targets in the SEC.

Weaknesses:

  • Bites on fakes
  • Upright in space
  • Struggles in off man coverage
  • Grabby
  • Penalties
  • Tackling

Analysis: Carlton Davis is an ultra-aggressive cornerback, but that also gets him into trouble. He is extremely grabby at the top of the route. Tugs on jerseys as recovery tactic. Six pass interference penalties in 2017. Opportunistic angles on the throw leave him susceptible to big plays when he misses. He is a long-strider in short spaces. Off-man can be a struggle. Transitions are spotty unless he reads the pattern. He struggles to mirror and match from a backpedal. He can be goaded out of early press positioning by fakes. Plays upright in space. Not a consistent tackler, especially in space. His angles of pursuit leave a lot to be desired. Needs more fundamental strike and wrap approach.

Size: 6’1 203lbs
