Not only is Demario Davis a leader on the football field, but he is also one of the best linebackers in the entire NFL.

Davis is a very physical, hard-hitting linebacker who also possesses excellent closing speed, a trait helpful when it comes to having to chase some of the fastest running backs in the NFL.

Davis dominated in 2019 taking home NFL All-Pro First Team honors and racking up incredible numbers.

In 2019 Davis recorded 111 tackles, 11 tackles for a loss, 87 solo tackles, nine quarterback hits, four sacks, 12 passes defended, and one interception. Davis also finished the season with a 90.1 Pro Football Focus grade, the highest of his career.

Demario Davis is coming off the best season in his entire football career, if he continues this success in 2020, he could be in line for a massive payday next offseason.
