Phil Davis was born in Canberra, Australian Capital Territory and lived there until the age of 14 when he relocated with his family to Adelaide. He was drafted by the Adelaide Crows with the tenth selection in the 2008 AFL Draft.
Davis missed the end of the 2008 and the beginning of the 2009 seasons due to a shoulder injury. He played for North Adelaide in the South Australian National Football League (SANFL) and was close to selection by Adelaide towards the end of the 2009 season, being named as an emergency numerous times.
Davis made his AFL debut for Adelaide in Round 4, 2010 against Carlton at AAMI Stadium; he had 16 possessions and seven marks. Davis was nominated for the 2010 Rising Star in round 16 for his performance against Cameron Mooney.
In August 2011, Davis became the first player to announce that he would be moving to the new Greater Western Sydney club in 2012. This led to Adelaide football manager Phil Harper saying the club was "bloody disappointed" to lose such a young player who was taken with a high draft pick in the 2008 AFL Draft.
