Nate Davis (UNC Charlotte)

Nate Davis has been a hot name as of late and he has watched his draft stock jump up in the past few months.

The UNC Charlotte big man has been manhandling opposing defenders since his freshman year. He has the ability to move and shake for an offensive lineman and he is constantly showcasing his raw power and high level of intensity.

Davis still has a ways to go before he reaches his full potential. But when it comes to offensive lineman who could have the highest ceiling, Davis is definitely in the discussion.

While I wouldn’t consider him a project, he might not be ready to go on day one as a starter. He is exactly the type of guy offensive line coaches drool over. He has all the physical tools and motivation to be great, he just needs a little polishing when it comes to his technique.

If the Vikings do in fact take an offensive lineman in round one, round three or four could be the spot they look to double dip at the position. Which will make Davis a real possibility to be on Minnesota’s radar. He could push for a spot early in his rookie season and possibly take over a starting position before the end of the year.
