Tennessee Titans NFL Draft study: 4th of July edition
By Will Lomas
Raekwon Davis DL, Alabama
If you would have asked 100 scouts who was the best prospect coming out of Alabama heading into the 2018 season, 95 of them would have said Raekwon Davis and the rest would have been wrong.
Quinnen Williams was an absolute monster in 2018, but he hadn’t made any kind of splash before that year. Then all of the sudden he showed up and was the best player in the 2019 NFL Draft out of nowhere.

However, before Williams there was Davis who was the hulking presence in the middle of the Bama defensive line. With 8.5 sacks, 10 TFLs and an interception as a sophomore, it seemed like the sky was the limit for the 6’7 5-star DT.
For whatever reason, that just never really happened. The season was quickly caught up in the devourer of worlds that was Quinnen Williams and Davis bet on himself and went back to college to try to be “the guy” his final year.
In Davis, you get a massive defensive tackle with long limbs and brute strength. Is he the most refined player? No, but he has the wow factor to make up for that and if he focuses on technique and making the most of his frame this year then he will be worth a 1st round pick from the Tennessee Titans or any other team.
