Antwan Davis’ playing style will remind you of a former Philadelphia Eagles WR.

Ball State wideout Antwan Davis is a wideout that is built like a running back, but he has hands like former Philadelphia Eagles receiver Jason Avant. Davis is able to run a complete route tree, and although he isn’t exactly amazing at anything, he still does everything very well.

The five-eleven, 205-pound wideout has the quick-twitch at the line of scrimmage to help him separate from defenders. Built to play in the slot, he has a nasty approach to his game that helps him punish tacklers when the ball is in his hands.

During the Hula Bowl, he stood out right away as a solid blocker in the running game. He’s also a guy that runs every route like he was the target meaning he never took a play off and treats every play as if it was his last.

Adding Antwan Davis to the mix would alleviate a canyon-sized issue that’s been plaguing this team on the offensive side of the ball.
