Following a third-team All-American campaign as a sophomore at Florida, Davis batted .313 for USA Baseball's college national team last summer. He thrived in a Gators lineup that had Jeff Corsaletti in front of him and Matt LaPorta behind him. Florida's 2006 season was a different picture. LaPorta got off to a bad start, and the slump seemed to spread to Davis and junior catcher Brian Jeroloman, who all watched their draft stock plummet. Davis has the ability to be a switch-hitting sparkplug, with plus speed and some looseness in his swing. He doesn't work counts as effectively as he needs to in order to profile as a leadoff man, and he needs to improve his contact and stay inside the ball more. He has a slight uppercut in his swing, and shows more pop from the right side but better contact from the left. He can hit the ball to all fields, though his power is limited. He shows average range at shortstop, but he'll move to second base in pro ball, where his footwork and arm strength fit better.
