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.

    Blocking, tackling, running, catching, throwing, kicking and punting….sounds like football to me….sounds like a LB’s job is to mainly do one of those things…tackling…in today’s football from pee wee to the pros…tackling is not taught very well.
