The Broncos organization is going crazy for linebacker Todd Davis. Inside linebackers are not as valued as they used to be but Davis is almost proving that point entirely wrong. He's an undrafted free agent from the class of 2014 that became a New Orleans Saints cast off and now is a bonafide starter on Denver.
“He’s unbelievable,” defensive coordinator Joe Woods said Sunday after the Broncos’ first practice in full pads at training camp. “He’s the type of guy you want to coach on defense. He’s playing 100 miles an hour on every snap, even in walkthroughs. You have to tell him, ‘Hey, slow down, it’s a walkthrough.’ But that’s his mind-set. He’s hungry. He’s out there to prove a point, that he can play at a high level in this league, and he’s doing a great job so far in this camp.”
Talking about the draft,
“It’s not an exact science. We all make mistakes in the draft process when we’re evaluating players,” Woods said. “Sometimes you hit on a guy, sometimes you miss on guys, then you sign a guy that’s a free agent or late-round draft pick and all of a sudden he turns out to be a stud for you. Todd Davis has proven that. I’m really pleased with where he’s at. He’s really become the leader of this defense.”
Davis still has room to grow as a young player so here's hoping that he makes this already lethal Broncos defense even better.
