But Matt Davis of Southern Methodist is not your normal quarterback.

The timetable on this is definitely unusual, it's not every day that you see a guy declare for the National Football League draft so late in the offseason.

Davis had applied for a sixth year of eligibility after missing most of the 2016 season due to injury.

Instead of continuing to seek a sixth year of NCAA eligibility, Matt Davis has made a decision to enter the NFL Draft. North Texas. SMU coach Chad Morris said days after Davis' injury that the QB would appeal to play in 2017, but things obviously changed. He was also an effective rusher for SMU that year, compiling another 761 yards and 10 scores on the ground.

In his only real full-time stint as a starting quarterback for SMU, Davis completed 55 percent of his passes for 2,259 yards with 16 touchdowns and seven interceptions back in 2015.

Davis initially attended Texas A&M out of Klein Forest High School. He transferred to Tyler Junior College for the 2013 season and then moved on to SMU for 2014, where he started the last five games of the season. Hicks, a native of Waco, Texas, will be a redshirt sophomore this season.
