Raekwon Davis drafted #56 by Miami Dolphins

Davis went off the board earlier than many predicted.

in something of a surprise, Raekwon Davis went near the middle of round two, #56 overall to the Miami Dolphins where he will be reunited with Tua Tagovailoa.

You can’t teach pure size and strength, and the 6’7” Davis has those in spades. Consistency in effort was something that he admitted to struggling with in college, but if he can find that fire in his belly there is nothing he can’t achieve. Davis managed 8.5 sacks in his best campaign back in 2017 to play a key role on a national champion.

Miami is in full rebuild mode so there will be plenty of opportunity for Raekwon. He should be able to join the rotation right away, stuff the run and bat down some passes. Good luck to him in sunny Florida.

Roll Tide.
