Bills WR Gabriel Davis Dynasty Rookie Analysis

  • Draft Position: 4.128 | School: UCF
  • Height: 6’2” | Weight: 216 pounds
  • 40-yard dash: 4.54 seconds
  • 2020 Age: 21 | Class: Junior
  • Recruitment Stars: 3

I’d be happy to get Davis at the end of Round 3. He’s young, big and adequately athletic, and he improved each year of college.

  • 2017 (10 games): 27-391-4 receiving on 44 targets
  • 2018 (12 games): 53-815-7 receiving on 92 targets
  • 2019 (12 games): 72-1,241-12 receiving on 132 targets

Even though Davis isn’t a burner, he can get deep with his 13.6-yard average depth of target (per SIS), and despite playing outside at a mid-major school, he might be able to hang with NFL corners.

He put a show on against respected Stanford cornerback Paulson Adebo last year, and in his two games against Power Five opponents last year, he was 14-214-3 receiving.

Davis is inconsistent, but he has upside. In the RV Prospect Box Score Scout, one of his five closest comps on the basis of draft position, physical profile and college production is JuJu Smith-Schuster.

One of his 10 most comparable players is Michael Thomas.

If the team parts ways with John Brown or Cole Beasley over the next two years, Davis could find his way into the starting lineup.

NFL Prospect Comp: Jaelen Strong but slower and with less draft capital
