Draft Scout Snapshot: A closer look at the Dolphins' picks: Round 3/93 - Will Davis, CB, 5-11, 186, Utah State...The Dolphins traded into the back part of the third round to ensure they didn't miss out on another cornerback, and used that pick to draft Davis, a raw player who doesn't have much football experience but has risen up draft boards over the past year. Davis played at three different colleges, but had a great senior season with five interceptions. He will compete with Jamar Taylor and Nolan Carroll for the No. 3 and 4 cornerback spots. - The Sports Xchange

10/07/15 - CB Will Davis, who was acquired from the Dolphins last month for 2016 seventh-round draft pick, got his first extensive action against the Steelers. He could play a bigger role in the secondary this week against Cleveland as he becomes more acclimated to the playbook. "He came in and really went to work studying," Baltimore coach John Harbaugh said.
"It's not an easy thing to do. The main thing is transitioning from one system to another in terms of the terminology and the techniques and how it all operates together. (It is about) a lot of the calls. You have to be on the same page back there, and he did a good job with that. He brought us the skill set that we needed, and it showed up in the game. I'm excited about that going forward."
09/21/15 - The Baltimore Ravens acquired third-year cornerback Will Davis from the Miami Dolphins in exchange for a seventh-round pick in the 2016 NFL Draft.
The 5-foot-11, 190-pound Davis was a third-round pick by the Dolphins out of Utah State in 2013. He has played in 15 career games, but was buried on Miami's depth chart and inactive for the first two games of this season. He has 20 career tackles to go with three passes defensed and five special teams tackles.
09/06/15 - CB Will Davis, who was on the bubble, had two INTs in the preseason finale against Tampa Bay to help solidify his spot on the roster. Davis, the third-round pick from Utah State, has battled injury problem for the previous two years and this offseason.
08/15/15 - CB Will Davis, the 2013 third-round pick, caught the eye of head coach Joe Philbin for his performance in Thursday's preseason opener at Chicago. Davis, who is still recovering from a torn ACL in his right knee in November, had four tackles and a pass broken up.
According to Philbin, Davis did much better against the Bears than in the Dolphins' intrasquad scrimmage a week earlier at Florida International University.
"I think there was a big difference between Will Davis at FIU and Will Davis at Chicago," Philbin said. "We're looking for that same kind of improvement (in this week's practice at Carolina). They're going to have some big guys, it's going to be great for us to go down there against Carolina. Another step, he's got to continue to progress."
11/15/14 - CB Will Davis (knee) will be placed on season-ending injured reserve due to a knee injury he sustained in Thursday's game against Buffalo. Davis, a key special teams player, was used sparingly from scrimmage after losing his job as the nickel DB early in the season.
11/15/14 - CB Will Davis, as expected, was placed on reserve/injured by the Dolphins Saturday (Nov. 15).
10/29/14 - CB Will Davis, who opened the season as the starter in the nickel package, seems to be getting transitioned into a special teams player. In the nickel package S Jimmy Wilson, S Michael Thomas and CB Jamar Taylor are ahead of him. But Davis did get a few snaps in the nickel last week vs. Jacksonville.
09/11/14 - CB Will Davis did OK in his season debut as the nickel DB. Davis plays RCB while CB Cortland Finnegan moves inside to the slot. Davis got turned around a couple of times but never gave up a big play.
08/24/14 - CB Will Davis seemed to play well as the nickel back. Davis played the outside cornerback position while CB Cortland Finnegan played inside.
08/17/14 - CB Will Davis is competing for the slot position in the nickel defense. This is a bit of a surprise because he hasn't been used with the starters in that role much in practice. When Taylor plays, CB Cortland Finnegan stays on the outside.
