I think this has to be for a WR.

Patton? Maybe Robinson.

Will Davis, CB Utah State. ProFootballWeekly.com had a 2nd-3rd round grade on him, Chris Wright of NFL Draftcountdown.com had the same 2nd-3rd round grade on him. CBSSports.com had a 5th round grade on him.

I was loving our draft, and now I'm not so sure if we know what we're doing

a 4th, 5th and a 7th so it doesn't matter too much if you like him and everybody has been whining about cbs so nobody better complain. Also, they got more depth to delete Patterson or another overpaid cb I like it

So let me get this straight.

We traded our 3rd for two 4ths.

Then traded the two 4ths and a 7th for a 3rd?

I'm a huge fan of DraftCountdown.com cuz I think Scott Wright does a great job in his research each year and he had Will Davis as his 15th best Corner.. listed as a 2nd or 3rd round pick.

He pulled in 5 interceptions last season.

NFL.com Analysis:

Quote:
Overview
Davis only played one year of football at Central Valley (Wash.) High School, logging seven interceptions, while also tallying 33 tackles, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery. He also played wide receiver, making 16 catches for 135 yards and four touchdowns. Davis also earned three letters in basketball and four in track. Davis was an honorable mention all-league honoree and team MVP as a senior in basketball and was a two-year starter.

After high school, Davis originally enrolled to play football at Western Washington, but the program was cut during his redshirt-freshman season. Davis then went to De Anza College, and earned first-team all-Golden Gate Conference and first-team all-state honors after posting eight interceptions, returning two for touchdowns.

In 2011, Davis transferred to Utah State, where he played in all 13 games and logged five starts. He recorded 35 tackles (3.5 for loss) and six passes defended. In his senior year, Davis played in 13 games and recorded 64 tackles (4.5 for loss), 17 pass breakups, and five interceptions (one returned for a touchdown). He was named first-team All-WAC.


Strengths
Solid frame for the position. Possesses light, quick feet. Extremely fluid and coordinated athlete, changes direction well. Good balance and hips. Has the ability to drive on the football and break up passes. Tracks the football and can get his hands on the deep throw. Uses his hands through the route, not afraid to get physical, but is not overly grabby.


Weaknesses
Limited football experience. Could stand to add more weight and strength. Overaggressive nature. Susceptible to getting beat by double moves. Lacks the recovery speed to catch up to a receiver that has run by him. Has issues with beating blocks from the receiver. Will lower his head and give sub-par tackling efforts.


NFL Comparison - Alterraun Verner


Bottom Line
Davis has good length, foot quickness, and ball skills for the position. Although his recovery speed is a question, he's a fluid athlete with good hips who can make plays on the football. Davis can be beaten deep when he gets overaggressive, but he has more successes than failures in this department. Davis should be a middle-round selection.

At least this is facts instead of hating because you don't know his name but good numbers and seemed to be highly touted but if he can get Carroll, Patterson or Marshall cut then I will love it

Omar Kelly ‏@OmarKelly 55s
In Will Davis' senior season he contributed 64 tackles and 5 interceptions. He had a stunning 17 pass deflections.

We never got takeaways last year so I want a guy like this

Ahh yes. You correct. I do like the pick too. I'm still very concerned with having a crappy offensive line though. Tanny needs time to throw and Miller lanes to run in.

People need to take the time to find out a little bit about the kid before they dog the pick out or state they never heard of him. Find out about him.

Kid looks like a good football player. Not all the talent drafted come from the bigger schools.

We got two 4th rounders from NO. We traded one of them, and a 5th and a 7th to move back into the 3rd. So in essence we traded a 5th and a 7th to move down a few spots in the 3rd and add a 4th. Take a breath guys. If Davis turns out to be a player, are you all going to regret this move? It's all about production. Ireland will miss on some of these moves... the hope is that he hits on more than he misses. My biggest concern right now is only that we pick up a veteran OT, because that's the only glaring need I feel like we have left unadressed. Yes, it would have been nice to get a seam threat TE, but there might still be someone left to develop. (Toilolo?)

Miami trades 82 for 106 & 109

Then trade back into the 3rd @ pick 93 & give up 109, 146 & 224

Maybe I'm missing something. ( Pick 109 is a wash since its in both deals. )

So basically its 11 spots in Rd. 3 & picks 146 & 224 for 106

Good deal? You decide

Will davis was consistently mocked in the middle of the draft so solid pick for Miami. We need corners. Love the Taylor pick.

Would like to bash simply because there were other players I'd like for Miami to have drafted. Will have to research this guy.

Not sexy, but two of the top corners that have ball skills then I have to be Okay with that.



From Walters

Quote:
4/24/13: Davis had an impressive senior season in which he demonstrated special athleticism alongside a rare combination of size and speed. Davis went on a tear during the second half of the season, snagging an interception per game in five straight games. He displayed excellent ball skills in 2012, recording 17 passes broken up. Davis' 22 total passes defensed led the nation. He also had 54 tackles with 4.5 tackles for a loss.

Davis was quieter than expected at the Senior Bowl and didn't do much to stand out. That ho-hum trend continued at the Combine.

Tony, please tell me you are not including me in there. I've been pounding the drum for small school guys in many of these threads. I'm not saying that this kid won't be good (I didn't know about him, but have since looked him up), I'm just saying that I think it was a mistake with Poyer still on the board. I thought this kid would be a late 1 early 2 and he's still on the board. What's the deal, why the slip?

Chris, I was not going to separate the folks that are hung up on the big school kids and the folks who just look at talent. To much time. They know who they are and I know you are not one of them.

This is from Rotoworld.com.



Dolphins traded up to select Utah State CB Will Davis with the No. 93 overall pick, sending pick Nos. 109, 146 and 224 to Green Bay.
Davis (5-foot-11 1/4, 186) ranked second nationally in pass breakups (17) as a senior, picking off five and recording 4.5 tackles for loss. He ran 4.53 at the Combine with an explosive 10-foot-7 broad jump, also repping 226 pounds 16 times. Davis is small with short arms (31 1/2"), so he may be best suited to nickel back once he fully develops. The Fins are dangerously needy at cornerback, so they're doubling down with Davis after drafting Jamar Taylor.

don't know much about this kid either. seems to find his way to the ball though with pass deflections and interceptions. my guess is he will be groomed to be what Kevin Coyle needs him to be. Could take over Nolan Carrol role in time?

I'm not going to be disappointed if we've found Marshall and Carroll's replacements.

Another corner who I don't know a ton about, but you have to like the production. 17 pass breakups and 5 interceptions means he likely has excellent cover skills. The only thing you question there is the level of competition playing for Utah State.

But for a late 3rd round pick I think you're honestly looking at someone who will primarily contribute on special teams his rookie season. Odds are this kid will bump Nolan Carroll this year, and then bump Marshall next year if he develops.
