Davis had an interesting career at Maryland in which he played significant time at cornerback and safety. His versatility is one of the major factors that caused him to rise up draft boards this past spring.
In the Steelers preseason opener against the Detroit Lions, Davis certainly didn’t disappoint in his professional debut. He started off the game at cornerback, but ended up playing the second half at safety. When it was all said and done, Davis registered five tackles (four solo), which was the second-most on the team.
Davis certainly didn’t get a chance to ease into the game. His lone mishap was allowing a 30-yard completion to veteran wideout Anquan Boldin.
All in all, it was a very successful debut for Davis. For a time that doesn’t exactly have a ton of playmakers in the secondary, it looks pretty certain that Davis will see the field quite a bit as a rookie.
