The first thing one might observe when watching Mike Davis is the fact that he looks like a fullback. Then he proceeds to make plays out of the backfield, whether it’s catching or running the ball. At 5’9, 217 lbs, it is rare to find someone so big who can move like that, while also having the ability to catch.  When watching Mike Davis run, you see a power back that has the instinct, vision and cutting ability of a speed back. He does lack speed, but what he does have is an amazing ability to stay light on his toes. That trait allows him to have a choice when facing a defender. He can either go around them or go through them, and with his size and balance, Davis has the ability to do either. He has thick lower legs which makes it hard to bring him down. The former 4th round pick out of South Carolina has only fumbled once since entering the league in 2015. Davis lacks the production to get excited for, but he has an exciting skill set paired with good athleticism at age 26.

It’s hard to get excited about a back who isn’t flashy and only has 6 touchdowns to his name, but it will be interesting to see how he fits in the Bears’ offense. His receiving skills and running ability can negate his lack of speed. His toughness and determination is something that should fit into Chicago culture very well.
