. . LB. University of Kentucky. 15. JaminDavis. 60. player

I know the Saints are still in need of a wide receiver, but after getting a cornerback in the first round, I don’t think the Saints can pass up on the opportunity to draft Jamin Davis if he falls all the way to the latter half of the second round.

Davis has been in Kentucky for three years before entering the Draft in 2021.

Davis’s first two seasons were mediocre at best before he was given his chance to shine. He played in 15 games in those seasons and totaled 42 tackles, 1.0 sacks, two interceptions, and 1.0 tackles for a loss.

In his breakout year 2020, Davis had 102 tackles, over doubling his first two year’s production. He also added 1.5 sacks, one touchdown, three interceptions, and 4.0 tackles for a loss. Almost all of those are career-highs in college.

Davis would add depth to the position with the opportunity to quickly grow into a starting role. He could quickly become a huge part of the defense alongside Demario Davis. He might also give the team stability at the position for years to come.
