Davis is a former fifth-round pick out of Michigan State by the Bears in 2008. He hasn't missed a game in his five-year career but he has been a backup and special teams contributor more than he has as a pass-catching tight end, though he has been a red zone threat. In his career, he has caught 47 passes for 529 yards and 11 touchdowns.
Davis is a good blocker, both powerful in the run game and solid in pass protection. He also has great size, standing at 6-foot-7 and weighing 267 pounds. He has decent speed, though he won't be able to stretch the field, but he's a raw route runner.
