Sean Davis move underway

The Pittsburgh Steelers are transitioning former strong safety Sean Davis to free safety.

Fantasy Impact

The Post-Gazette's Gerry Dulac writes the Steelers believe Davis' speed better suits the defense because his range provides a better last line of defense. Davis, who last played the position at Maryland and primarily set at free safety in high school, could see an uptick in the one interception from last year and a decrease in the 71 solo tackles registered in 2017 if he lines up outside the box regularly.

S Sean Davis signs rookie deal with Steelers

Rookie safety Sean Davis has signed a four-year deal with the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler.

Fantasy Impact

Drafted in the second round, Davis stands at 6'1", 202 pounds and projects as a strong safety who could play a bit of cornerback and cover opposing tight ends. He should immediately compete to start as a rookie and could be a quality DB2 in IDP leagues as soon as this year.

S Sean Davis a 'good fit' for Steelers defense

The Observer-Reporter believes that second-round safety Sean Davis out of Maryland will make for a good fit on the Steelers defense.

Fantasy Impact

Listed at 6'1", 202 pounds, Davis is viewed as a strong safety/cornerback hybrid who could be a versatile chess piece for the team. Steelers GM Kevin Colbert has said that Davis will often match up against tight ends, which is good considering the team plays in a division with the likes of Tyler Eifert, Gary Barnidge and Maxx Williams. Expect Davis to contribute immediately and threaten for real fantasy value in IDP leagues.
