Jordan Davis Weight Loss: How Many Pounds Did He Lose?

Jordan Davis’ weight loss transformation has piqued the interest of many sports enthusiasts. He has an impressive 6’9 1/8″ wingspan and is noted for his athleticism despite his huge size. Many fans are curious how he managed to keep the weight off. Here is what we know about Jordan Davis’ weight loss journey!

Jordan X. Davis (born January 12, 2000) is an American football defensive tackle for the Philadelphia Eagles of the National Football League. He played college football at Georgia, where he was a part of the 2022 College Football Playoff National Championship winning team. He won the Chuck Bednarik Award and Outland Trophy as a senior in 2021.

Davis was drafted by the Eagles in the first round of the 2022 NFL Draft.

Jordan Davis has come a long way since his days as an offensive tackle for Mallard Creek High School in Charlotte, North Carolina. He has always been concerned about his weight, which is why, despite his 6-foot-6 frame and relatively rapid first step, he was ranked 424th in the 2018 recruiting class.

However, Davis never shied away from his weight issue and turned it into a motivating factor. He was worried about putting on extra weight during the initial outbreak of COVID-19. But he managed to keep the weight off and even shed some pounds. He now appears to be in the finest form of his career heading into a crucial 2022 season.

Davis said:

“It’s just trying to progress every day. Move that chip lower and lower, move faster and faster every day. I’ll look at myself in the mirror sometimes and be like, ‘Dang you’re really slimming up.’ So, it’s just good to see the progression.”

His training and gym sessions at Georgia also helped him to lose weight. He used to take on two or three blocks and bring out the utmost energy during the sessions.

Georgia outside linebacker Nolan Smith said:

“He’s taking on two or three blocks, he’s a zero nose. He’s a big guy and I love the energy he brings every day. The guys that bring that type of energy, that stuff is what makes the Georgia defense what it is.”

The defensive tackle for the Eagles is listed as 6’6″ and 340 pounds on Georgia’s website, but according to the former Dawg, he played anywhere from 350 to 360 pounds during the season. Davis currently claims to be in the 340-pound range, having shed more than 20 pounds since the end of the season in preparation for the most important job interview of his life.

Davis’ comment about playing around 350 or 360 pounds adds some context to statistics like 19.6, which is the miles per hour measured by Georgia’s GPS devices. At 6’6, a roughly 360-pound man running nearly 20 MPH, isn’t that impressive?
