Some sports fans might have known Hannah Davis only as Derek Jeter's (latest) girlfriend. But Davis got a serious boost in status Wednesday night when Sports Illustrated revealed the cover of its 2015 Swimsuit Issue. Just like "Super Bowl MVP," the designation of "SI Swimsuit Cover Model" opens up even more career possibilities. Here's a look at Davis in the years leading up to this big moment:
