    Another Florida signee, Davis may be drafted shortly after Branham in the fourth- or fifth-round range. But he could also slip beyond the 20th round as his signability appears to be more of a factor than with Branham. His performance during the spring was inconsistent, and it may be a case of which scout saw him on which day that determines where he's picked. Davis showed good velocity on his best days, touching some 93s and 94s while pitching in the 88-91 mph range. He has excellent size (6-foot-5, 225 pounds), commands his average curveball and fastball equally well, and profiles as an innings-eater in the middle of a rotation.
