Buffalo Bills hosting G/T Nate Davis on pre-draft visit

Buffalo will meet with Davis, who has experience starting at right guard and right tackle.

The Buffalo Bills will use one of their 30 visits leading up to the 2019 NFL Draft to meet with University of North Carolina Charlotte guard/tackle Nate Davis.

The visit was reported by Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.

Davis showed well during the 2019 Senior Bowl. He earned an invitation following a 2018 season where he garnered second-team all-Conference USA honors at right tackle, despite a four-game suspension for undisclosed violations.

The success at right tackle came after he spent his first three seasons in Charlotte as a right guard, starting 30 of a possible 31 games.

A four-year starter, Davis anchored an offensive line that ranked fourth in Conference USA in rushing yards per game in league games (163 yards/game) last fall.

Davis, a 6’3”, 311-lb offensive lineman who made 37 starts at Charlotte, is projected by as the eighth-ranked guard in the draft class. The site projects him as a fourth- or fifth-round selection. has Davis as the seventh-ranked offensive guard, projecting him to go between the third and fifth rounds. has Davis as the 20th-ranked offensive lineman and 120th overall, roughly equal to a fourth-round draft pick.

According to analyst Lance Zierlein, Davis “carries good power and outstanding foot quickness on a stout frame and has proven to be consistent and effective in a variety of blocking schemes. His footwork and body control help him square his targets into his power zone, but a lack of arm length creates some inconsistencies in sustaining blocks. He has some flaws, but there doesn’t appear to be glaring holes to overcome his areas of strength and become a starting guard early in his career.”
