Georgia defensive lineman Jordan Davis put together one of the great performances you will ever see at the NFL Scouting Combine.
If you’ve been following the NFL Draft long enough, you may have just witnessed one of the top two individual workouts of all-time when Georgia defensive lineman Jordan Davis took the field on Saturday at the NFL Scouting Combine.
Davis, a 341-pound interior defensive lineman, posted a workout for the ages and trails only the great Calvin Johnson for the best composite relative athletic score ever recorded.
Jordan Davis with the most impressive Combine for a defender ever?
At 6-foot-6 (and change), 341 pounds, Jordan Davis may have just set the bar for defensive players at the NFL Scouting Combine. It all started with his blazing 40-yard dash…
The way Davis moves in this clip is actually pretty insane, even though a lot of times some of these 40-yard dashes blend together. After running an unofficial 4.82, it was announced that Davis’ official time was actually even faster if you can believe it.
He officially ran a 4.78 in the 40-yard dash with a 1.68 10-yard split. Those times are more typical of players who are 80-100 pounds lighter than Davis.
After running such a blazing 40-yard dash, Davis opted not to run a second time, and deservedly so. But his amazing workout wasn’t finished on the track, either.
Again, it needs to be stated that this young man is overs 6-foot-6, 341 pounds. So much for the idea that he will be just a two-down, part-time player in the NFL.
Overall, the athletic numbers look even crazier when placed all next to each other.
There is no other player quite like Davis.
In terms of his overall size and body composition, explosiveness, and speed, there is literally no one in the league like Davis. You can come up with plenty of comparisons that are 20-40 pounds lighter but this was a workout for the ages.
It’s no wonder now that Georgia was able to win as many games as they did this past season en route to a National Championship with one of the most dominant defenses you will see.
Watching Davis and all of his teammates at the Scouting Combine makes you appreciate even more the work that Georgia squad did together and how they played as a unit. It won’t be surprising to see more than half that defense go in the first round of the 2022 NFL Draft or very early on day two.
Davis’ 2022 NFL Draft stock has skyrocketed with this workout, there’s no question about it. He could very well have cemented himself as a top-10 draft choice but there is plenty of competition from the stellar EDGE and defensive line class we saw working out on Saturday.
