James Davidson

School: UTEP
Position: OLB
Positive: Senior totals included 53 tackles, 7 tackles for loss and 4 sacks when he became a full-time starter. Posted 23 tackles and 6.5 tackles for loss the prior year. Undersized college defensive end who projects to linebacker at the next level. Bends his knees, gets leverage on opponents and slices between blocks to make plays behind the line scrimmage. Flexible, shows a degree of quickness in his game and easily moves to every angle of the field. Quickly gets his hands up to protect himself, fluid changing direction and shows the ability to immediately alter his angle of attack. Competitive and works hard.
Negative: Possesses marginal playing strength and easily blocked from the action. Does not display a burst and minimally effective in pursuit.
Analysis: Davidson is a late bloomer whose game significantly improved the past two seasons. He'll offer potential as a backup linebacker in a 34 alignment if he plays well on special teams this summer.
