Another notable stat when Davis is on the field is that when he is in the game, they are reaching the quarterback 40% of the time and when he is off the field, they are reaching the QB 34% of the time.

Defensive Players And The Heisman Trophy

To date, just one player has won the Heisman Trophy as a defensive player (1997 Charles Woodson cornerback). However, Leon Hart, a two-way player tight end and edge rusher won the award in 1949 but as a tight end.

It is also worth noting that just four defensive linemen have finished as a finalist in the voting in the top-6. Those players include Steven Emtman from Washington (1991), Warren Sapp of the University of Miami (1994), Ndamukong Suh from Nebraska (2009), and Chase Young from Ohio State (2019).

All in all, given his impact when on the field, Jordan Davis’s Heisman Trophy odds are worth taking if he continues at his current pace.
