    Mayock on NFL is saying possible top 7.

    6'3" 250+, good balocker, great hands (real good gauntlet drill) then a 4.38 forty.

    <New man crush?

    I would love trading back for him. That would accually pick up someone of need.

    Oh and by the way I love the Avatar.

    I had Vernon Davis on my soul-10 NCAA fantasy team in 2004. He's going to be the player Winslow was supposed to be. He's Kellen without the brain damage.

    That is sick. Maybe he could play TE, QB, RB, WR and return punts.:rolleyes:

    He was never projected toward the second. He was projected at #7-mid 20's the whole time with a projected 40 of 4.4/4.5. With an official 4.38 I don't see him dropping past 12.

    Thats insane, the guys like 6'3" 250lbs and has a 40" vertical. That is just crazy athleticism. Not to mention he is a strong as a ox.

    Add to teh forty a 10' 8" broad jump and a 42" vertical leap. :superman: :superman: :superman:

    This guy is just going off at the combine, and whats even more scary is that he is not a workout warrior. Davis = a TD 95% of teh time in teh red zone.

    He may rapidly be becoming the safest pick in the draft.

    Yo considering taking reggie bush, we will have the 1st choice of the second round, so do u think he will be there at the beginning of the second round, if so should we take him or trade him for a later draft pick.

    There is no way that he will be available in the second round.

    I've never heard that about Davis. He holds several lifting records at Maryland.

    Well said. One of the pieces of the puzzle to beat "cover 2" is to attack the middle of the field with a TE mismatch...and AJ + VD = defensive coordinator nightmares. That move would make the OL, AJ, and DC better simultaneously IMO...now if we can just get the right trading partner (top 10)willing to throw in an All Pro defensive end to swap places (Jets???) we are really getting somewhere. :stirpot:

    So many options at the top of this draft .... Much better than last years crop of talent ..... Glad im not going to have to make a decision on any of these kids .

    Latest rumor Ive heard is a trade down w/ the Raiders ..... I'd take him at 7 with Bush , Young , D-Brick , Hawk , Williams and Leinart all gone.
