Rutgers Offensive Tackle Anthony Davis
Anthony Davis: No. 75, OT, 6-6, 325
Davis displays good fluidity out of his stance in pass protection and exhibits a compact initial kick-step off the ball. But he does have a tendency to get a bit overextended from a two-point stance. He will need to tighten his footwork a bit at the next level. Displaying impressive range for his size as a pass blocker, Davis possesses the footwork to quickly reach defenders off the edge. Extends his long arms well into blocks and uncoils a jolting punch at the point of attack. Once he locks on, the battle is over. He will still occasionally lunge into blocks on the edge and lose his balance, but he has improved his patience significantly. Looks very confident one-on-one in space. Displays good balance and body control when asked to redirect in space. Does a nice job changing directions and mirroring the counter move. Exhibiting a powerful base, he sits into his stance and anchors on contact. He certainly has the power to hold the point of attack against the bull-rush. Looks natural on the move in the run game. Does a nice job breaking down in space and hitting/sealing targets at the second level. Displays natural power on contact as an in-line run blocker, consistently turning defenders away from the ball and saying on blocks. But he’s too often slipped easily on contact. Overall, he looks like the nation’s premier left tackle prospect.
