2. Ashtyn Davis | California | Safety | 51st overall
The second-round pick for the Dallas Cowboys might be the most intriguing slot of them all. The first round was easy pickings, but the next pick is where all the fun and speculation happens. The arrows in the second round could go anywhere.
In this mock, there was plenty of talent available. The Dallas Cowboys had plenty of choices in Antoine Winfield (Safety, Minnesota), whom I pick up last week, to Cole Kmet at tight end. Edge rusher Jonathan Greenard and wide receiver K.J. Hamler were also available.
I’m sticking to my word on the safety spot. Yes, the Dallas Cowboys have Ha ha Clinton-Dix, who is on the roster with a one year deal. But I adamant about ringing the bell for the safety, defensive backs room.
Ashtyn Davis, alongside C.J. Henderson, gives the Dallas Cowboys a super punch. Davis stands at six-foot-one, 200 pounds. He is projected to be a first-rounder but could slide out, which is great news for the ‘Boys.
Davis played wide receiver in high school. He is a versatile, athletic standout with track team experience. The Dallas Cowboys have another known player on their roster who was on the track team: Ezekiel Elliott.
In 2019, David made the Second Team All-Pac squad. The prior year, he made the First Team All-Pac team.
For his college career, Davis accumulated 166 tackles, seven interceptions, no sacks, 12 passes defended, two forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries.
To prove his versatility, Davis has delivered safety and cornerback experience. In addition, he has returned 70 kick returns. He accumulated 1,604 return yards, averaging 22.9 per pop.
