Jordan Davis Is More Of A Monster Than We All Thought
The big man had quite the combine.
If you watched Jordan Davis play this past season then you knew he was an absolute freak of nature. He was about 30 pounds bigger than every Georgia starting defensive lineman this year and played like a swift dancing bear.
In 2021, Davis tallied 32 tackles with 2 sacks and a pass breakup and anchored the Bulldogs defense en route to a National Title. He was awarded the 2021 Bednarik Award, Outland Trophy, and was named First Team All SEC, and Unanimous All American.
Well now he impressed scouts even more after an outstanding combine. The big fella ran a 4.78 forty yard dash which is faster than J.J. Watt who ran a 4.84 weighing almost 50 pounds less than Davis. His ten yard split was also insane as it was clocked in at 1.68 seconds, and that makes sense when you see him get off the ball in a game.
In addition to his ridiculous forty time, Davis broad jumped 10 feet and 3 inches which is the same as his college teammate Travon Walker who weighs in at 275 pounds.
Davis’s forty yard dash and broad jump are both combine records for ANY player weighing over 310 pounds. Again, let’s remember that Jordan Davis weighs 340 pounds.
While the forty and broad jump were the big numbers for Jordan Davis, his vertical wasn’t too shabby either. He jumped 32 inches, 3 more than fellow Bulldog defensive lineman Devonte Wyatt who weighs 25 pounds less than Davis.
Davis’s stock was teetering before the combine because his conditioning appeared to be subpar on third downs and when teams would go no huddle on Georgia. Now he’s proved, again, that he’s a great athlete and teams in the top half of the draft may disregard the conditioning aspect of his game.
I love seeing big dudes who move like receivers and Davis is as big as they come.
