Davis’ skills, combined with his experience, are why Carolina feels good about the 27 year old.
“The biggest that you want out of your No. 2 running back is someone that can go in and be a really good all-around back — running the ball, blocking and catching — and Mike can do all of those things,” Nixon said.
In the meeting rooms, Nixon says Davis is a laid-back, fun-loving guy who can do some solid impressions of former coaches.
“The interactions between him and Christian are also funny at times, just the things they talk about,” Nixon said.
But Davis also takes football seriously and has endeared himself to his teammates.
“It’s his work ethic and talent,” Nixon said. “He’s performed all through training camp, all through the first couple weeks of the season.”
