Washington Redskins Player Profiles: Dyshawn Davis

This one's for you, one guy who keeps bringing up Dyshawn Davis in the comments!

Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

Position: Linebacker

Height: 6'2", Weight: 227 lbs.

College: Syracuse

Drafted: Undrafted (2015)

#1. Dyshawn is a bit of a 'tweener at the pro level.  He has the size and speed to play ILB, OLB (primarily in a 4-3), and/or SS.

#2. He is the first person in his family to graduate from college.  He majored in Child and Family Studies.


#4. Dyshawn is sixth all-time at Syracuse in TFL (37.5).

#5. According to his Twitter account (@thehybrid35), Dyshawn's nickname seems to be "The Hybrid."  I'm not positive, but it appears that he even refers to himself as "The Hybrid" in third person.

Bottom Line: It's going to be tough for Dyshawn to make the Redskins 53-man roster this year, especially after not really making any standout plays a week ago against Cleveland.  He'll need to really show well over the last preseason games to have a chance at landing on the 'Skins PS.
