Anthony Davis (born October 11, 1989) is an American football offensive tackle for the San Francisco 49ers of the National Football League (NFL). Davis was drafted in the 1st round (11th overall) of the 2010 NFL Draft by the 49ers. He played college football at Rutgers University.

High school career

Davis attended Piscataway High School in New Jersey, where he played for the Piscataway Chiefs high school football team. He was a three-year starter and recorded more than 70 pancake blocks for his career. In his sophomore season, Davis was a teammate to fellow NFL players Kyle Wilson, and Malcolm Jenkins and helped the team to an undefeated season, and its third consecutive state title. Davis played in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl and was earned First-team All-American honors by USA Today.

Considered a four-star recruit by Rivals.com, Davis was listed as the No. 5 offensive guard prospect in the nation.[1] He was also listed as the #68 prospect coming out of High School in the nation.[2] He was also regarded as the top prospect from New Jersey and received over 50 scholarship offers. He chose Rutgers over Ohio State, becoming the first No. 1 prospect from New Jersey to sign with Greg Schiano at Rutgers.

College career

In his initial year at Rutgers, Davis played in all 13 games on the year. He was named starting right guard for the sixth game of the season and started the final eight games of the 2007 season. He earned First-team Freshman All-American honors by the Football Writers Association of America,[3] The Sporting News and Rivals.com, and Second-team All-American laurels from Scout.com.

Davis was moved to left tackle before the 2008 season, and started 12 games at that position. He was named to the Second-team All-Big East by the league’s head coaches and a First-team All-Big East honoree by the media.

In 2009 Davis was First-team All-Big East and Second-team All-America.

Professional career

2010 NFL Draft

After the 2009 St. Petersburg Bowl, Davis said on the field that he scheduled a news conference for December 22, to announce his NFL plans.[4] At that news conference, he declared his intentions to enter the 2010 NFL Draft, and said he will hire an agent.[5]

Davis was drafted in the 1st round with the 11th-overall pick by the San Francisco 49ers after the 49ers traded up from the 13th-overall pick with the Denver Broncos in order to select Davis. On July 30, 2010, Davis signed a five-year contract worth $37.5 million, with $15.954 million guaranteed.[6]

Davis is currently the starting right tackle for the 49ers. He has started all 16 games in each of his first three NFL seasons.
