Eric Wayne Davis (born January 26, 1968 in Anniston, Alabama) is a former professional American football player who was drafted by the San Francisco 49ers in the second round of the 1990 NFL Draft. Davis played in 13 NFL seasons from 1990 to 2002. He played college football at Jacksonville State University.

He is the all time leader in consecutive NFL playoff games (five) with at least one interception.

Davis was a pivotal player in the 1994 NFC Championship game versus the Dallas Cowboys when he made two key plays early in the game. First, a 44 yard interception return for a touchdown on the game's third play from scrimmage, and a forced fumble on Michael Irvin that led to another 49ers touchdown. These plays helped the 49ers beat the previous 2-time champion Cowboys to advance to Super Bowl XXIX. The 49ers would go on to beat the San Diego Chargers 49-26. In 1995 he went to the Pro Bowl and helped lead the 49ers to the number one ranked defense. In 1996, he became a free agent and signed with the Carolina Panthers, helping them reach the NFC title game only to lose to eventual Super Bowl XXXI champion Green Bay Packers. After playing for one year with the Denver Broncos, in 2002, he ended his career with the Detroit Lions.
