Sure-tackling LB Kevin Davis signs with the Rams
- The Rams have drafted off-the-ball linebackers before the sixth round only twice since 2009 and continued that trend in 2017 by again drafting no off-the-ball linebackers and bringing in PFF’s 38th graded linebacker from 2016, Kevin Davis from Colorado State, who had an overall grade of 83.3.
- Davis averaged a missed tackle every 13.1 tackle attempts, which was ranked 35th out of 267 linebackers in 2016.
- Davis’ 103 stops over the last two seasons are just two less than Alabama’s Reuben Foster in that same time span.
- He had 84 solo tackles in 2016, which was tied for 27th most among 267 linebackers, and was only been called for a penalty twice in his three seasons at Colorado State.
