Default Thomas Davis, next FS fenom?

ESPN.com


Remind you of someone? I didnt think that there would be another one like this so soon but it seems now maybe that colleges are pumping them out. Maybe we can get the ype of DB I was looking for last draft.(no offense DR)

I would love for the Texans to draft him. He is as sure a tackler as you will find. He is definitely the best safety in college right now.

Al contrario, the best safety in college football is Darnell Bing, sophomore at USC. P-L-A-Y-M-A-K-E-R. He is a larry fitzgerald case where he is a true sophomore but being 3 years removed from hs can enter the draft. I think if he does come out, he goes to the Lions in a top 10 pick

Davis reminds me of Sean Taylor, except Davis hits harder. He played awesome in that LSU game. I think he forced two fumbles. He has size (230 lbs) and is very athletic. In high school he played nine different positions, and started out as a linebacker for Georgia. Watch the Tennessee game tomorrow and you will see.
I don't know how good Darnell Bing is because I have never really seen him. I have watched USC play a couple times this year and never noticed him making a play. Watch a Georgia game and you will hear the name Thomas Davis in the first two minutes.

i watched the dawgs again this week and davis was all over the field. i would agree that he is like sean, but sean covers better.

The Georgia secondary was pretty bad yesterday. I saw Davis get beat on deep coverage early, but so did our other DB's. Sometimes Davis gets a little agressive and forgets his deep responsibility. Georgia needs to fix that or Florida will kill them AGAIN.

you're right, he looks for the run first and can get beat deep. i didn't see the first td happen, but saw the replay, was he suppose to be help over the top?

No, Tra Battle was supposed to help on that. Needless to say he didn't, and our freshman corner couldn't handle one on one. The secondary is the weak link on Georgia's defense. That is why I worry about Florida. Auburn doesn't scare me because I don't think much of Jason Campbell.
