Ex-Georgia Bulldog Jordan Davis working on his pass-rush moves for NFL

INDIANAPOLIS – Former Georgia defensive tackle Jordan Davis is working to show NFL teams that he can play on third downs.

“I’d say my biggest strong suit is being the attack anchor of the defense,” Davis said Friday. “That’s something that I (took) pride in at Georgia. Run stopping and being an anchor. I definitely think I’ll be able to carry that on an improve while I’m in the NFL.”

Davis, who’s 6-foot-6, said he played at an average weight of 350 pounds last season. He plans to play at 330 pounds in the NFL.

When teams play nickel packages on third downs to defend the pass, Davis doesn’t appear to be a natural fit.

“Everybody knows that I’m a run stopper and pass rush goes by the waste side with me,” Davis said. “Definitely in the offseason, that’s something that I’ve been working on. I called on a few people and I’ve been working out with Chuck Smith, who is known as Dr. Pass Rush.”
