He’s drawn interest from San Francisco 49ers, Green Bay Packers, Arizona Cardinals, Atlanta Falcons and Denver Broncos, according to league sources. Davis has an incredibly strong leg.
As a senior, Davis hit 27 of 32 field goals, including 7 of 8 from 50 yards or beyond, and scored 119 points. His long was from 58 yards. In a narrow 19-18 victory over Concord, Davis accounted for 13 points. He also punted, setting a school record with a 78-yarder.
Davis is the all-time Division II career field goal percentage leader ahead of Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri.
