PRO: The Titans selected Nate Davis in the third round (82nd overall) of the 2019 NFL Draft. The 6-foot-3-inch, 316-pounder brings quick feet and physicality to the trenches of the offensive line. The Ashburn, Va., native appeared in 41 contests with 37 starts at both guard and tackle over four seasons for the Charlotte 49ers.
• Growing up, Davis was ‘always a pretty big kid.’ He played on the offensive or defensive line during Pop Warner, and estimates that in the fourth grade he weighed around 200 pounds.

He went head-to-head with defensive linemen from larger conferences, and as an athlete from a smaller conference, he credits his performance at the Senior Bowl for helping put his name into the conversation ahead of the draft.
