LB Buster Davis, Florida State
Watching FSU - Miami game tonight and Buster Davis is making a statement.
Some reasons to pay attention:
- he plays ILB in the FSU 4-3 front
- he can play at any LB position, but looks like a true ILB
- firey competitor
- Bruschi-like pressure on the QB
- solid tackling skills, can shed blocks to make the tackle, open field tackles
- the announcers say he's a film rat and very smart
- listed as 5-10 240#, and his body shape looks like Larry Izzo... short and squat
If he was a little taller, he'd be a first rounder. I think he might be a quality player for the Pats in, say, the 3rd.
"We want to build a big, strong, tough, smart, fast, disciplined football team that will consistently compete for a championship."
-- Scott Pioli, from the Patriots scouting manual
