Davis' production improved each year with the Huskers, although he did not earn starts until in his final season on campus. As a redshirt freshman, the younger twin brother (by five minutes) of fellow Nebraska defensive lineman Carlos Davis posted five tackles, two for loss, in 12 games. Khalil Davis played in 12 games again as a sophomore (15 tackles, four for loss, two sacks). He broke out as a key reserve in 2018, earning honorable mention All-Big Ten status and his squad's Defensive Lineman of the Year award with 41 stops, eight for loss, and three sacks. He started 11 games in 2019, leading his defense with 11 tackles for loss and eight sacks among his 45 stops to garner third-team all-conference honors. Both Davis brothers joined Nebraska's track and field squad as throwers; Carlos had beaten Khalil for the state title in shot put and discus their senior year of high school.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have two picks currently remaining as they still hold two seventh round selections (#241 and #245 overall).
