Take one look at Raekwon Davis’ imposing 6-7, 330 lb presence and it’s hard to imagine a scenario where he did not stand out in a crowd. It wasn’t until Alabama head coach Nick Saban stumbled upon the Meridian, Mississippi native, however, that Davis transformed from virtual unknown to a starter on the Crimson Tide’s SEC Championship defense as a true freshman in 2016. By 2017, the big man was a National Champion. Miami Dolphins General Manager, Chris Grier and Head Coach, Brian Flores selected Davis in the second round of the 2020 Draft and he rewarded them with 40 tackles in 12 starts, landing a spot on the PFWA All-Rookie Team.
In The Tank, Raekwon discusses his humble beginnings, including two mentors at Meridian High School who remain a huge part of his life today. He also explains a strange Twitter hack, provides his perspective on “Big Man Etiquette,” and invites OJ and Seth to visit the Miami Dolphins stunning new Baptist Health Training Complex as his guests.
