Combine Rock Star Robert Davis Can Play

A few weeks ago, I briefly profiled Georgia State wide receiver Robert Davis as a small-school WR to watch at the NFL Combine. He did not disappoint. At 6-foot-3 and 219 pounds, Davis ran a 4.41 forty and jumped 41 inches in the vertical to go with 136 in the broad. He also posted a 6.82 in the three-cone. According to Kevin Cole’s regression tree analysis of combine drills for WRs, Davis falls into the most positive node in terms of success rate – 48 percent of WRs with a similar profile notched a top-24 PPR season in their first three NFL seasons. Davis’s stellar athletic performance at the combine placed him at the top of the 2017 WR class in terms of Freak Score, a RotoViz metric using height, weight, and speed to predict future touchdown-scoring potential at the NFL level. With this in mind, let’s take a closer look at how Davis compares to previous Freak Score standouts.
