LOUDOUN COUNTY, Va (WDVM) — With the 19th overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, the Washington Football Team went defense, picking Kentucky linebacker Jamin Davis.

At Kentucky, Davis didn’t start making a huge impact until his Junior year, where he led the team in tackles (102), had three interceptions (one returned for a TD), and 1.5 sacks.

Davis will look to help at the interior linebacker position for Washington, a spot on the defense that needed some improvement heading into this year’s draft.
