The Philadelphia Eagles truly have something special on their hands. At this point, we’re running out of superlatives that appropriately speak to Jordan Davis‘ potential and the greatness he’ll see if he lives up to it. Pretty soon, we’re going to have to begin making up words that don’t already exist in the English language.

Much of his story is already familiar to you. A highly decorated Unanimous All-American during his final season at the NCAA level, the Birds selected Davis with the 13th-overall selection of the most recent NFL Draft. He’s already proven himself to be worthy.

He’s had a solid showing at training camp, but the buzz seems to have reached a fever pitch now as, during Philly’s lone open practice of the two-week process, the rookie nearly broke Twitter and Instagram when this happened.

That’s second-round selection Cam Jurgens that he’s moving there, and folks, Jurgens is no slouch! Just for kicks, let’s take a quick trip around the web to see what’s being said about a six-foot-six, 336-pound phenom that can run the 40-yard dash in 4.78 seconds.

Davis has also caught the attention of former rivals. Here’s something from once-starting Washington quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III who now spends his time as an NFL analyst.

The talent is there. That’s undeniable. We mentioned collegiate accolades earlier. In addition to that All-American nod, Davis also took the Chuck Bednarik Award (we love the name by the way), the Outland Trophy, and a First-Team All-SEC nod home in 2021. This after earning Second-Team All-SEC nods in 2020.

Through it all, he’s stayed humble, and he hasn’t lost his work ethic. Check this shot out.

Forget what you’ve heard about stamina, questions about his ability to rush the passer, and theories about whether or not he’s ready for the pro game. Jordan Davis is going to be fine.

We spent months leading up to the most recent NFL Draft asking questions about whether or not the Eagles might take another wide receiver in the first round, if they’d draft a linebacker, or whether or not they’ll trade up to take a game-changer like Ahmad ‘Sauce’ Gardner. In the end, they followed the business model, and they took an interior defensive lineman. Thank goodness they did.

Jordan Davis was the right pick for this team, and he’s going to be great for a long time. No one needs to lose any sleep over any theories to the contrary.
