2024 NFL Draft Profile: Ray Davis, RB, Kentucky


The 2024 NFL offseason is here and that means it’s time for mock drafts, draft profiles and everything that goes with them. So without further ado, here’s one of many Draft Profiles for the 2024 NFL draft.

Ray Davis, RB, Kentucky

HT: 5’8
WT: 211 lbs


First-team All-SEC (2023)



Powerful running style, effective in breaking tackles and gaining yards after contact.

Displays good vision and patience in identifying rushing lanes.

Reliable pass-catcher with solid route-running capabilities.

Maintains a low center of gravity for better balance and stability.

Decent acceleration and burst through gaps.

Resilient and durable, capable of handling a substantial workload.

Versatile, adapting well to various offensive schemes.

Proven ability to find the end zone


Lacks top-tier breakaway speed, which may limit big-play ability.

Needs improvement in pass protection, especially against blitzes.

Relies more on power than finesse, which could be challenging against NFL defenses.

Could benefit from enhanced agility and elusiveness in the open field.

Limited exposure to top-tier competition raises questions about his NFL transition.


Davis is what you see is what you get – a dependable, three-down back who can be a cog in an NFL offense from day one. He’s not going to be the centerpiece of an offense, but his versatility and experience, especially in pass protection and as a receiver out of the backfield, make him a valuable mid-round pick. Age and mileage are concerns, but he’s got the build and mentality of a pro. Expect Davis to carve out a role quickly in the league, likely exceeding his draft position’s expectations.
