Kentucky LB Jamin Davis got the call from the Washington Football Team and was selected 19th overall in the 2021 NFL draft. He talked to reporters, an told them this was a dream come true. He finally got his shot to start last year, and ran with it. Davis was projected as a mid-round pick last year, but has had a meteoric rise up the boards. He is a high character, athletic freak that Head Coach Ron Rivera and Defensive Coordinator Jack Del Rio can mold into a major contributor in an already stout defense.
