Thomas Davis (born March 22, 1983 in Shellman, Georgia) is an American football linebacker in the National Football League for the Carolina Panthers.

Davis attended Randolph-Clay Middle/High School in southwestern Georgia with a total student population of 471. The small size of his school made his chances for exposure very low. He was not highly recruited out of high school and was only offered a scholarship to one Division I school. The University of Georgia offered him a scholarship after a coach saw him play a basketball game. He was voted a consensus All-American free safety after his junior season in 2004. Even though he was drafted as a safety in the 2005 NFL Draft, he was converted to linebacker during his rookie year. He majored in consumer economics.

Davis was selected in the first round (14th overall) in the 2005 NFL Draft out of the University of Georgia. In his debut season he played in 16 games making one start. He recorded 38 tackles and 1.5 sacks.
