TE - GB
Jaguars tight end Tyler Davis is active for the team's Week 3 matchup against the Miami Dolphins on Thursday Night Football. The rookie had been inactive for the first two weeks of the season with a knee injury.
Davis will be active on Thursday, but he is expected to be the No. 3 tight end behind Tyler Eifert and James O-Shaugnessy. The rookie sixth-round pick is not someone worth rostering in any format until he shows something on the field.
Jaguars sixth-round pick TE Tyler Davis has officially signed his four-year rookie deal with the team.
Johnson joins a Jacksonville squad with a veteran TE in Tyler Eifert and an up-and-comer in Josh Oliver, who the team drafted in the 3rd round just a year ago. Davis is viewed as more of a run-blocking tight end, which could come in handy early on as both Eifert and Oliver are seen as pass-catching tight ends.
The Jacksonville Jaguars have selected tight end Tyler Davis with the No. 206 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.
The Jaguars fill a position of need at No. 206 overall, however, the product out of Georgia Tech is more of a run-blocking TE than a pass-catcher. Davis has soft hands when asked to make a catch or two, but he’s mostly a guy that’s utilized in the run game, which is also a very necessary skill on the offensive side of the ball. Solid pickup for the Jaguars in the sixth round.
