Auburn Cornerback Chris Davis – is known for his famous, kck-six return. However, Davis is quite the defensive back, as well – he finished second on the team in tackles with 74.
“Chris Davis is a player most well-known for his kick six return, but the bottom line is at the Senior Bowl, he competed very well as a corner – he’s stand a shade under 5-10, 200 pound and the 40 yard dash is always important for any kind of corner. If he can build off some of the momentum he gained from the end of the season – and then in the Senior Bowl is itself and now build on that in the combine – I think you’ll see Chris Davis’ name called somewhere in the mid to late rounds,” said Senior Bowl Director, Phil Savage.
Now – one big-time prospect coming from Auburn’s roster is defensive end, Dee Ford – Ford led Auburn with 10.5 sacks – totaling nearly 100 yards lost.
“Dee Ford – for sure, he played exclusively a defensive end here – so he got to showcase his pass rush skills – at the combine they will stand him up and he will workout as an outside line backer – in addition to some of those defensive end drills – I think Dee Ford will test extremely well, he’s got a quick first step – he’s got some explosiveness in his body so I think he will certainly build on the momentum he gained here at the end of the year and in Mobile during the Senior Bowl,” said Savage.
