Obviously not the level of play, but the way he patrols the paint

Yeah, he's the most suitable comparison so far. Even looks like him too - baby face and all.

A bit of JO and a bit of someone a bit more mobile, Marion or AK47.

i hope so.
JO was a block machine in his hay days. we can only hope Davis can turn into that type of player.

Yea he reminds me of JO too. But do you think Ed can become the center we need if he gains enough weight? I mean he is 6'10 with good rebounding and shot blocking ability.

Honestly he looks big enough to play against all 4's in this league & there are only a hand full off 5 he would have trouble with IMO

at first when raps drafted him, I really thought he was really thin....but he looks really bulked up especially in the shoulders area...i think that's the JO comparison. he's def more nimble than JO, but not as quick as bosh. if he's a mix of both of them, it wouldn't be too bad at all

His mentality on defense matches JO's but his post game and physical attributes are no way close to what Jermaine's use to be. JO is 6'11" 260.

JO doesn't come to mind when I think of him, but I have a hard time remembering what a young JO was like on the defensive end. I remember JO as more of a sit back and wait guy who would block the shot at the rim.

Davis seems more all over the place, but he has a this classic style. Arms always up, hands always ready, feet always moving. He has big shotblocker, "control the paint" potential, but then he has this Marion/AK47 feel to him with the way he's always moving and the way he gets up so quickly.
