The Aggies look to rebound behind their stalwart defense, led by Davis.
Utah State’s Jalen Davis had a solid 2016 despite the Aggies’ down year, making five tackles for loss and collecting two sacks. He also defended seven passes, though he only had one interception after grabbing three in 2015, and finished with the third-best opposing QB rating in the conference according to Pro Football Focus.
If he can help USU fix its takeaway problem — the Aggies only had ten last fall — Davis could make a case as the conference’s best defensive back.
