Tyler Davis will be the second Clemson DT to hear his name called this year

While Orhorhoro is more of an up-field rusher, Tyler Davis is the prototypical stay-at-home defensive tackle. At 6-foot-1, 299 pounds, he has the size to be a one-technique and stuff the run in the NFL.

The former 4-star recruit was a fifth-year senior this season when he played 436 snaps for the Tigers. He ended up with 34 tackles including 3.5 behind the line of scrimmage.

A member of Bruce Feldman's "Freaks" list, he is an elite athlete. He is a monster in the weight room and can even run a sub 5.00-second 40-yard dash. Those attributes alone will earn him a shot in the NFL.

However, with only 0.5 sacks this year, many NFL scouts will question if he can be a three-down defensive tackle. On the other hand, he did end his career with 16 sacks meaning scouts will have to decide whether his 2023 pass rush numbers were just an anomaly.

Defensive tackle has become a premiere position in the NFL thanks to All-Pros such as Aaron Donald and the recently retired J.J. Watt. That's why Davis could be valuable to many NFL teams looking to bulk up their interior presence on that side of the ball.

Someone will invest a top-100 pick on Davis because he has untapped potential and a team may think of him as a steal. That's why he should hear his name called somewhere in the third round of the Draft.
