Scouting Report on Anthony Davis

by Mike Farrell - 06/19/2006
Davis is a huge offensive tackle who locks up quickly and can overpower the competition with his sheer size. He has good agility but his strength is enveloping defenders in the run game and getting out of his stance quickly in pass protection. Davis extends his arms well and likes to hit, using a strong left-handed stiff arm to knock defenders off balance in pass protection. He likes to punch, slide his feet, anchor and punch again, an aggressive pass blocking technique. Davis is more likely a right tackle or a guard prospect unless he improves his footwork, but he will be a load to run behind and is very solid in pass protection. Davis anchors very well and has a strong base, allowing him to handle even the best bull rush attempts. He also avoids over-stepping and stays on balance for counter moves. Davis plays high at time and while he’s successful getting to the next level often, he has trouble with moving targets at times. A very good athlete for his size, Davis relies more on sheer bulk and size at the high school level and needs to work more on his ability to move.
