Davis (6-4, 320 pounds), who participated in the N.Y. Jets’ rookie mini camp as a tryout player, started all 48 games played at the University of Buffalo, where he competed at both guard and tackle while blocking for three of the top-four single-season rushing performances in the program’s history.
