I read that some want us to get Thomas Davis in the draft. Yet, I am wondering Why? and yet wondering how Davis and Earl would be compared/contrasted. I admit I didn't follow N.D. when Earl was playing but what I read is that he was a step below Sean Taylor if Earl wasn't injured. Thomas Davis bio Glenn Earl college bio I read somewhere that earl runs around a 4.5 forty. and Davis runs a 4.55 forty according to nfldraftblitz. thomas davis forty just looking a physical size.. Earl (according to the texan website) is 215 and Davis is listed at this time as 230 .. so they are pretty close.
