Gabriel Davis Draft Profile
Gabriel Davis is an extremely raw prospect, but if I’m being honest I wasn’t a big fan of his game. He’s a lengthy dude and shows willingness to block. He’s a long stride and is solid after the catch. He was the number one target for UCF and the offense was tailored around him. From what I saw, he struggled to get off the press, running clean routes, and he dropped a lot of balls. One thing that I liked from Davis was using his strength to create separation. He has a clean jab to help get defenders off of him. I’m giving him a late day three grade. I think he’s being overrated throughout the process and will have a hard time finding a role on offense. Davis is a raw receiver who does a solid job tracking the football, but I wouldn’t draft him if I were an NFL general manager.

Gabriel Davis is going to be used as an outside receiver and on special teams. His routes aren't great and he gets pressed easily. His speed isn't his strength and he dropped a lot of balls in the games that I watched. Davis is a really raw prospect and an NFL general manager will see that and take a late round flyer on him. Davis was extremely productive for Central Florida this year and was their number one receiver. Davis will be a late round guy, but with such a deep receiver class, I can see him going undrafted.
