RB Ray Davis Drafted by Buffalo
2 months ago

The Buffalo Bills have selected Kentucky RB Ray Davis in the 4th round of the 2024 NFL Draft.

Ray Davis’ route to the NFL was circuitous, to say the least. Growing up in foster care never made things easy for him and he made his way from San Francisco to New York before joining the Temple Owls football team. At Temple, Davis had a Freshman breakout season rushing for over 900 yards before circumstances saw him transfer to Vanderbilt. In 2022 he had another productive season, breaking the 1000 yard mark. And then another transfer came. This time to the University of Kentucky. As a Wildcat, Davis eclipsed 900 yards rushing for he third time, before entering the 2024 Draft and being selected by the Bills.

 

Davis, at 5’8″ and 211 lbs has a squat, thick frame that reminds some of Maurice Jones-Drew. He has ample speed being clocked at the combine at 4.52 in the 40, and showed good athleticism and explosiveness. In Buffalo, he fits the “Thunder and Lightning” game style as the hammer alongside James Cook’s receiving prowess and could take over immediately as the two-down back the Bills need to replace the departed Devin Singletary and the aging wonder Latavius Murray.

 

Davis is a prime fit in dynasty as a 2nd or 3rd rounder in rookie drafts and a sneaky late round play in zero RB builds across all formats. 24 year-old rookies aren’t the ideal, but if there is one who will refuse any outcome but success, it’s Ray Davis. He’s been doing it his entire life.

Ray Davis Completes Athletic Testing at NFL Combine
4 months ago

Kentucky RB Ray Davis has completed athletic testing at the NFL Combine

One of the best stories in the 2024 class, Ray Davis has just finished his athletic testing at the NFL Combine. Davis is an older prospect, having just turned 24 years old, but is coming off of two very productive seasons at Kentucky. He ran a 4.52 40-yard dash this weekend which is very impressive considering his strong frame.

 

While this class doesn’t possess a lot of top-tier talent at running back, Davis is one of the many players that fantasy managers should find available deeper into rookie drafts. Even though he is a day-three prospect, he still rushed for over 2000 yards in his final two collegiate seasons and amassed 58 receptions over that span as well. Landing spot will be important, but he can be a three-down player at the NFL level.
