Positives:

An unbelievable athlete, Vernon Davis has amazing strength for a player with his speed and agility. He has good size and soft hands. Davis rewrote every record book in the weight room at Maryland and has a great work ethic. He has all the talent that cannot be taught with tons of potential. Davis has the Kellen Winslow like ability to outrun linebackers and outmuscle cornerbacks.

Negatives:

Davis is primarily a receiving tight end and could face some troubles trying to block linebackers at the next level. He is only 6’3”, but can out leap many receivers. Needs to be placed in a passing offense to fully utilize his talents.

Overview:


Vernon Davis has a great chance to be a top 15 pick and the first tight end drafted because of his true potential. He has all the tools scouts look for and more in a receiver. Davis is a physical beast and will be a stud in the NFL.
