OK, so pitching a baseball is not exactly like throwing a football, but you’d have to think Wade Davis would have a rocket arm. At 6’5” and 220 pounds Davis would easily be able to see over his line, and not easy to bring down.

Decent footwork is a must for a pitcher, which would help Davis translate well if he were to play behind center.

While quarterbacks tend to take on a leadership role, some are more vocal than others. Davis would fall under “others” were he in the NFL. He would lead by his toughness and bull dog attitude. He doesn’t seem to be afraid of anyone or anything, and it would be that attitude that would help him lead.

He may be a late bloomer, as he has been in baseball, and it could take the right team or scheme for him to find success.

Davis wouldn’t be the most athletic QB in the league, but “winning, game-manager” would fit him perfectly.
