GEORGE KARLAFTISAHMAD GARDNERDEREK STINGLEY
KAYVON THIBODEAUXNAKOBE DEANKYLE HAMILTON
  • Height: 6-6 foot (1.98 m)
  • Weight: 340 lbs (154 kgs)
  • College: Georgia Bulldogs
  • Year: Senior
  • Position: Defensive Tackle

STRENGTHS

  • He is the best run defender in the country – he cannot be blocked on run plays by any offensive lineman
  • He is incredibly powerful off the first step
  • His hand placement causes him to be a monster in the pass game as well
  • Can play anywhere on the interior of the defensive line
  • He is strong tackler
  • He has brilliant speed for a man of his size and can change direction very well
  • Has the best size of any defensive lineman

WEAKNESSES

  • Less experience as a pass rusher than as a run defender, which could bode badly in the pass-heavy NFL
  • He can get lost in blocks and can get stranded too far up-field leaving him left out of the play
  • He played too few snaps at Georgia, he actually played fewer than 50% of defensive snaps in college

Projected role in the NFL: 

Jordan Davis should come in right away and could be a starter on almost any team’s defensive line due to his size and his presence on a football field. His positional flexibility makes him even more valuable, but his lack of consistent snaps could hinder him at the next level.

Best team fit(s): 

The Vikings, who pick at 12, could be a good landing spot for him. They have lacked a partner to Danielle Hunter and Davis could perform even from the inside. If he falls far enough, the LA Chargers should be looking at taking him after their disastrous run defence could have cost them a place in the playoffs last season.

Pro comparison: 

Honestly it is quite difficult to find a comparison for him, given his size, strength, and height. Akiem Hicks could be a good physical comparison for him, given they are almost the same height, but weight-wise he is similar to Vita Vea.

Grading scale: 95+ Generational | 90-94, Early/Mid 1st Round | 86-90, Mid/Late 1st Round | 80-85, 2nd Round | 75-79, 3rd Round | 70-74, 4th Round | 65-69, 5th Round | 60-64, 6th Round | 55-59, 7th Round | <55, UDFA

Grade and Draft Value: 

Talent wise he should be a top 10 pick, but his lack of snaps and the lack of positional value that an interior defensive lineman has could see him dropped down a bit, maybe to the Mid/Late First Round. So my grade for him is 89/100 which is miles above the second ranked defensive lineman.

SUMMARY

He is an unbelievable talent and could be a real wrecker in the NFL, but his lack of snaps could hinder his production heavily, especially as it is a big step up.
