Quartney Davis – WR (Texas A&M)

Quartney Davis is a player who many figured would’ve been selected fairly early on the third day of this year’s NFL Draft.

Davis boasts good size, standing at 6-foot-1 and weighing 201 pounds, and he had a nice career at Texas A&M catching a total of 99 passes for 1,201 yards and 11 touchdowns during his last two seasons. He’s viewed as a slot receiver at the next level, with the ability to play outside in certain sets.

Davis does have a few red flags. He had a torn ACL that cost him his first two seasons with the Aggies. He also isn’t a burner, running just a 4.54-second time in the 40-yard dash at this year’s NFL Scouting Combine.

He does seem to have trouble separating himself from a defender in man-to-man coverage and considering he was Texas A&M’s top receiving option for the last two years, one would assume he would have been able to be more productive.

Davis was invited to the Senior Bowl this year and he fared well down there, playing against some top competition. With that and a decent showing at the Combine, the fact that he went undrafted was a bit surprising.

Davis has a very good shot to make the Vikings final 2020 roster, especially if they keep six receivers. Adam Thielen, Bisi Johnson, Tajae Sharpe, and Justin Jefferson all appear to be locks to make the final roster and with fellow rookie K.J. Osborn being penciled in as the primary return man, he looks to be a lock as well.

Davis will be batting with players like Chad Beebe, Alexander Hollins, and Dillon Mitchell to be Minnesota’s sixth or potentially fifth receiver for next season and he has the talent to win that competition.
