The Detroit Lions leapfrogged Alabama favorite Reuben Foster to select Davis who dealt with ankle injury issues during his 2016 campaign.
Despite the trials and tribulations, Davis proved his mettle by putting together a nice tape that took the place of freak performance at the Scouting Combine.
What makes him so special?
The kid works hard and has the type of leadership that the Lions need to take the next step.
Foster is a bit undersized at 6’2 to sit in the middle but so was Ray Lewis.
Watch: Jarrad Davis, LB, Florida
