Steelers S Sean Davis is recovering from shoulder surgery, but is expected to be "100 percent" for training camp.

The swiss-army knife defensive back played 742 snaps as a rookie, primarily at strong safety. He was an every-down player down the stretch, including the postseason. Strong safety should remain Davis' home for 2017.

Steelers second-round DB Sean Davis has initially taken Senquez Golson's (Lisfranc) spot in the slot.

The Steelers had insisted the college hybrid would be a strong safety, but they're getting desperate at cornerback. William Gay is another option if Davis isn't up to the challenge/needed too badly at safety.

Steelers signed second-round SS Sean Davis to a four-year contract.

Davis played both corner and safety in college, but the Steelers have already said he'll be at strong safety next to FS Mike Mitchell. He's a likely Week 1 starter.

The Steelers will use second-round pick Sean Davis at strong safety.

Davis shuttled between safety and cornerback at Maryland. "Primarily, we should plug him in at strong safety as Mike Mitchell’s primarily our free safety," said DBs coach Carnell Lake. "That’s where we’ll start and I’m assuming that he’ll wind up playing both positions at some point." Davis is a likely Week 1 starter, replacing Will Allen. Davis has some IDP potential as a rookie.

Steelers selected Maryland DB Sean Davis with the No. 58 overall pick of the 2016 NFL draft.

Davis (6'1/201) made 40 starts for the Terps, breaking out as a senior for five forced fumbles and three interceptions. Davis shuttled between corner and safety at Maryland and offers versatility. He's also a terrific athlete, running 4.46 at the Combine with a 37 1/2-inch vertical and 10-foot-6 broad jump. On tape, Davis needs to polish his coverage game — he coughed up 10 TD passes in his final two seasons — and was an inefficient tackler. He reminds of Jimmy Wilson as a safety-corner hybrid who may ultimately struggle to nail down a starting job at either position.
