 Draft Scout College Football Player News

  The next chapter of Ashtyn Davis' comeback story is about to be written. The former Cal football safety became the first Cal football player to be selected in the 2020 NFL draft, as the New York Jets drafted the former walk-on with the No. 68 overall pick in the third round. "I was just excited, obviously," Davis said in a conference call. "I don't know how to describe it other than that - my hands were shaking. I didn't expect myself to really get too nervous, but I did, and it was awesome seeing my parents' reaction and everybody's reaction and how excited they got."

According to Davis, numerous teams, including the Jets, had contacted him throughout the predraft process. His selection near the beginning of the third round by New York, however, occurred with other teams showing more interest. "It was a little bit of a surprise," Davis said of the selection. "A lot of teams reached out to me, so the Jets had reached out to me before. There were a couple of teams that were showing particular interest, but the Jets weren't necessarily one of them." A former collegiate hurdler for the Cal track team, Davis walked onto the football team in 2015 and was a semifinalist for the Burlsworth Trophy, given to the nation's best walk-on, in 2019. - Daily Californian
