    As I get more frustrated with Ben Watson's lack of any real blocking ability and his constant trips to the trainer's table, I start to turn my attention to the tight end position.
    Davis is about 6'4" or so and about 250 plus pounds. He runs fairly well and has decent hands. His blocking is never going to rival Graham's or Brady's but with a couple of season;s with Woicik, I think he could be better than Watson. His route running is above average for a college TE. But the thing that impresses me is his ability to get open/find dead spots in the defense. If Hoyer was more accurate, he could easily have doubled his catch and yardage totals.
    Another thing that impresses me is that Michigan state will sometimes use him as a DE in passing situatutions. Again versatility is something BB looks for.

    Good call Ochmed. Watched the PSU/Mich St game. He looks to be an excellent receiver. I didn't watch his blocking as much. Was watching PSU defense more than him. But, he looked good. Also, MSU fb and wr looked good. J.Caulcrick - sr fb 255lb looked good. Could be a short-yardage back in the NFL. D.Thomas jr - wr absolutely killed us. As have most decent wr's.
    J.King might be the most over-rated player in the country. I think Dan Connor can play ilb for us. Not sure how high I would go to get him. But, he can play.
