With all the turmoil surrounding the Longhorn offense last season, Mike Davis was one of the few constants on offense and the premier playmaker for Head Coach Mack Brown. Davis decided to return for his senior year in Austin after leading the team with 939 yards and seven touchdowns. The Longhorn receiver has been on field since he stepped on campus as a freshman and he will be the number one option this upcoming season for either David Ash or Case McCoy.
Standing at 6'2", 193lbs, Davis is a very unique deep threat. He possesses only average speed at best, yet the majority of his catches come on down the field throws. This is because Davis does a tremendous job of creating space from receivers in order to implement his rare ball skills. That space derives from the long arms and fluid body control that makes up for his pedestrian speed and gives him a step on receivers. Davis could really improve his draft stock if he excels with some the Big 12's top corners such as TCU's Jason Verrett, Oklahoma's Aaron Colvin, and Oklahoma State's Justin Gilbert on the 2013 schedule.
