Bradley James "Brad" Davis (born 18 July 1972) is a former Australian rules footballer who played with Fitzroy in the Australian Football League (AFL).[1]

A ruckman, Davis started his career at the Burnie Hawks, from where he was drafted by Fitzroy. They selected him in the 1990 National Draft, with pick 27.[2] He played four games for Fitzroy in 1991, but played just once more, in the opening round of the 1993 season.[3]

In 1994 he joined West Adelaide for a stint in the South Australian National Football League, then he returned to Tasmania and signed with the Burnie Dockers.[4] He won Burnie's best and fairest award in 1998 and 1999.[5] In 2001 he played with the Tasmanian Devils and for the following two years played at North Ringwood.[6] He then rejoined the Dockers and won the Wilfred Barker Medal for his efforts in the 2005 Northern Tasmanian Football League grand final. In 2006 he acted as Burnie's playing coach.[7]
