Khalil Davis

6-2, 315 • Senior • defensive line

After a strong junior season that merited Big Ten honorable mention, Khalil Davis, the twin of Carlos Davis, is poised for a breakout senior season. He was selected by coaches to attend Big Ten media days, and he helps anchor an experienced defensive line that should be — and needs to be — among the Big Ten’s best in 2019. Khalil has gained weight and mass, and while he may be a better fit for 4-3 tackle in the NFL, he’s more than capable in this 3-4 defense, especially on third down. Davis could have five sacks or more this season.
