In Davison’s second year, he looked poised to take a huge step forward.
All throughout training camp and the preseason, Davison looked like a disruptive force that no one saw coming. He was explosive off the line of scrimmage, a terror in run defense, and got into the backfield consistently. Like Onyemata, he has a rare combination of explosive speed and power.
Unfortunately, Davison suffered a shoulder injury in the early weeks that really limited what he was able to do throughout the season. He didn’t miss many snaps for the injury, but looked noticeably less disruptive. Still, he was able to anchor the defense in run support and contributed heavily to their improved rush defense.
His injury wasn’t disclosed until after the season. He needed surgery. But assuming he doesn’t aggravate the injury, he’s slated to be a big player in 2017.
