Post Most improved Dolphin: Rookie CB Will Davis

Miami rookie cornerback Will Davis may be the team’s most improved player in recent weeks. Davis was getting torched in the first half of training camp. But in the past week or so, the light has really come on and Davis is making plays. Davis got an impressive third-quarter interception where he outjumped the Jacksonville receiver. Davis also picked off Tannehill twice in practice on Tuesday, so this was a fitting cap to a good week.

Rookie cornerback Will Davis continues to impress me. He's always around the ball. He batted down a pass at the line of scrimmage on a corner blitz and had an interception.

this guy has been an interception machine since we got him. I can't help but think we got a special player on our hands.

He needs to play nickel, or better yet, start!

I like him a lot, he reminds me of Sam Madison........very similar frame......always looking to make the big play..........excellent hands.

He had an outstanding combine........finishing first in the three cone course and third in the 20 yd shuttle........exercises meant to mimic core movements for DBs.

Here's his draft analysis.

Yeah.........I think he could be very special. The one knack was, he would jump routes and get burned, but he's only been playing football since his Sr. Year of High School. I listened to a couple of interviews, he comes across as very intelligent and mature............so he's got a lot of upside. He's not going to be another Vontae.

He makes a lot of big plays, as his MO was at Nevada.

He also gives up a lot of big ones and is raw in coverage. He's been playing against 2's and 3's, and last night it was Jacksonville's 2's and 3's.

I'm still very hesitant to trust him with a lot of playing time. I'd take advantage of the decent starting 3 we seem to have, and bring Davis along slowly. He's got a lot of potential, but you have to develop him right. I think he's still a ways away.

Mak, throughout the entire draft process I never read a glowing review, he stayed mostly out of the spotlight, however he was on every corner ranking list I saw, usually in the 11th through 18th range.
And was given a 4th round grade, so I wasn't upset or shocked when we took him. We did need 2 corners anyway.

Agree Phins Rock......he's raw........but he's also been making plays against the Phins Starting O. Philbin is a conservative guy.......so I don't anticipate him to start week 1.........but, come mid season.........he maybe the guy.

Players like Davis that make big plays will also get burned. I hope the fans are patient with his development. He could be a really nice find for us.

Noteworthy: Rookie cornerback Will Davis, a third-round pick, continued to impress with an interception against Jacksonville. Asked what Davis needs to do to win the job as the third cornerback, Philbin said “a little more consistency.”
