The Dakotas continue to churn out NFL-caliber talent and that continues in 2024 with RB Isaiah Davis. The former Jackrabbit recorded an overall 22% dominator rating for his efforts at South Dakota State, with three seasons with a dominator rating at or above 25%. He hit the ground running as an 18-year-old freshman in 2020 - 819 rushing yards and 10 TDs. And that was while he was competing with future NFL fourth-round pick, Pierre Strong Jr.
Davis took a slight step back in 2021 after dealing with injuries (shoulder) but came back with vengeance over the last two years with the Jackrabbits.
Over 3,000 rushing yards and 30 TDs in his last two seasons at the college level. Impressive, especially at 6-foot-1 and 218 pounds. He also flashed as a receiver, averaging 22 catches over that same span.
Davis finished the 2023 season as PFF's highest-graded RB between the FCS/FBS with 80 missed tackles forced and 25 rushes of 15+ yards. Had a 30% missed tackle rate over his four-year career at South Dakota State. Elusive and slippery in space.
Potentially the most notable statistic to list for Davis is his elite yards per play at 3.33, which is No. 1 in the 2024 RB draft class.
Alas, he drew a terrible hand in the 2024 NFL Draft, going to the Jets at the end of Round 5.

Isaiah Davis selected No. 173 by New York Jets

The New York Jets have selected RB Isaiah Davis with the No. 173 pick in the 2024 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Impact

Davis led the FCS in rushing yards and rushing touchdowns last season. He is regarded as a running back that is patient and one that is able to break through tackles. Davis will likely slot in behind Breece Hall and Israel Abanikanda on the Jets’ roster.
