G Wyatt Davis

Ohio State | Junior | Round 3, Pick 23

Davis was one of the top recruits in the country in 2017, named the Los Angeles Times' Southern California Player of the Year as an offensive tackle at St. John Bosco High School while also winning the U.S. Army's Glenn Davis Award for excellence in community service, education and athletic distinction. Ohio State nabbed the five-star recruit, and he redshirted in 2017. He played in all 14 games of the 2018 season but did not start at right guard until the final two games of the year. Davis started all 15 games for the Buckeyes at right guard in 2019, playing well enough to earn first-team Associated Press All-American and first-team All-Big Ten accolades. He initially opted out of the 2020 season due to COVID-19 but decided to opt back in when the Big Ten announced it would have a fall football season instead of playing in the spring. Davis was once again a first-team AP All-American and all-conference selection in 2020 for his play in eight starts at right guard. He helped lead the Buckeyes to the national championship game, but Davis was forced to leave that contest with an injury in the first half. His late grandfather, Willie, was a Pro Football Hall of Fame defensive lineman for the Green Bay Packers in the 1960s. Wyatt's father, Duane, played football at Missouri but struggled with knee injuries. He eventually became an actor, landing movie roles in "The Program" and "Necessary Roughness" as well as "Beetlejuice," while also getting parts on TV shows like "21 Jump Street" and "A Different World." Wyatt's brother, David, played football at Washington State and Cal. -- by Chad Reuter
