MOBILE, Ala. — Dozens of autograph seekers, most of them young boys, have crowded around Auburn CB Chris Davis following practices this week, and Wednesday was no different.
To the young Tigers fans Davis is an icon, a do-no-wrong hero who miraculously placed Auburn in the SEC title game with his end-game miracle touchdown return off a missed field goal against Alabama. Without Davis' now-famous "Kick Six" play, Auburn might never have had a chance to play for a national title this season.
"Been a lot more people looking for my autograph since the Iron Bowl," he joked while signing. "Guess that's what happens when you make that play."
But to NFL scouts watching him this week, he's also the player who was picked on in the national championship game and who allowed the game-winning touchdown pass to Kelvin Benjamin in Florida State's final-minute championship victory.
Based on that and Davis' up-and-down work this week at the Senior Bowl, his draft status is hardly a known quantity at this point.
