TE Zach Davidson

Central Missouri | Senior | Round 5, Pick 24

Davidson has excelled in one of the most unusual double-duty roles in college football the past three seasons. The Webb City, Missouri, native has been the Mules' punter since his redshirt freshman season, when he averaged 44.3 yards per kick. He averaged 42.8 yards per punt as a sophomore and 40.3 as a junior, though he forced a career-high 16 fair catches in 2019. NFL scouts are more interested in his performance at tight end as a junior, however, because he was a first-team Associated Press Division II All-American and first-team All-Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association selection. Davidson ranked seventh in D2 by averaging 22.4 yards per reception and tied for seventh with 15 touchdowns among his 40 receptions (894 yards) in 13 games (12 starts). Central Missouri did not play in the fall of 2020 due to COVID-19. -- by Chad Reuter
