Not sure where we would put him, but I just love watching this kid play.

snippet:
Although Davis lacks ideal NFL size -- he is listed at 5-10, 240 pounds -- he has earned his share of predraft attention. NFL draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. recently called Davis a smaller version of Ray Lewis, and the Seminoles' coaches said pro scouts like his intelligence, quickness and passion for the game.

For example, consider Davis' response when asked last week about his motivation for playing in the second-tier Emerald Bowl on Wednesday against UCLA.

''We've only got 60 more minutes left,'' he said. ``We might as well make it the best 60 minutes you've ever played.''

Sounds like a coach already.

If we drafted him....

With the likes of Greenwood, and Orr running around I'm sure we could find a spot for him...

Hey 'Meco needs a running mate to make an excellent tandem.

He could play all of the LB positions, I can promise you that. He is worth a first rounder IMO, so if he fell to the second (much like Meco did), I think we should select him.

Spoken like a true :homer:. Does he have an agent? If not, you should call him.:)

I was just having a little fun, Seminole was doing such a great sell on Davis that he could be his agent. What Seminole says might all be true but if your name is Seminole and you write this about the guy "He could play all of the LB positions, I can promise you that," you gotta be a :homer:

If only Patrick Willis could fall to us in the 2nd. :homer:

I will say I wouldn't mind us picking up buster in the 2nd if he's there but I also wouldn't mind us picking up one of the top cb's if the fall too. (if we pick FS in first and we dont address cb in offseason). I will say I trust kubes to come up with someone good. buster and meco could be aweson together.

I guess it's true...but watch him play and tell me differently.

Dang you're tough Tejano.

I think he is a fine prospect. But...and I'm going to get Hammered...where ya going to play him ? The 5'11' means something. It means he's a Mike at the next level. Now I don't mind...but what we're talkin about here is moving Demeeco to will.
Which is something I've been wanting to see since day 1. So it isn't going to bother me. He has the right size and motor no doubt...but running with NFL tightends doesn't look like that will be his stong suite. That rules out Sam. I'd rather have someone a bit more flexible. But as you say he would be a bargin in the second round.


I've seen Willis solidly in the first rounds now.. He won't drop. Davis might. And then there's Blades and Conner...Like I said
Might be able to hold off on the LB prospect untill the third. I like them all for their level of senior production and size. Any one of them adds superior tallent to this roster. I was hoping that Peak would be "the guy". But...he never could stand up and play with his knuckles off the ground.

Mr Buster is actually pretty good in coverage.

I say if we are picking 10th, then grab Connor in the 2nd, he can play the SAM like we need. Blades and Davis both project to the middle because of there height, but that is said not knowing who has fallen to our pick, I would have to look real hard at Staley and where you see him falling in the draft. (depending on Spencer's progress).
