    4.38 for a TE! He was already the #1 TE in the draft. Do you think he has just put himself in the top five of the draft? I can't see him lasting longer than the seventh pick or so.

    He just blew away the TE field in all measurables. Nobody was even hanging close to him. Very impressive.

    Thats very impressive and brings up a question I would like to ask and that is
    Whats the highest a Tight End has been taken in the draft.

    KW2 went sixth I think. I don't recall anybody going higher that that.

    Thanks Dryheat for some reason I have already forgot about Kellen Winslow II and I would never make that statement about his dad.

    What did Davis measure for height and weight?? He won't go in the top 10 if he's under 6'3.

    It's discrimination, I know.

    Ahh, a Daniel Graham clone.

    St. Louis must be drooling. I can see them being explosive again with this kid as long as the defense can get off the field.

    What did Graham run the 40 in?

    "Hypothetically speaking, the New York Jets said that they would have drafted Kellen Winslow #1 overall if they had the #1 pick.

    He's a soldier, the Chosen One!"

    Graham ran a 4.65 or something.

    I meant he's the same size as Graham(6'3 260). He's(Davis) just faster than 90% of the receivers in this years' draft.

    Didnt Watson come close to a 4.40? He still lasted till late.

    Daniel Graham ran a 4.48 according to CNNSI Draft! Watson ran a 4.4! While these aren't entirely accurate, I do recall in '02 people taking about how Graham did run a sub 4.5 40. Watson, as we all know, ran a 4.4 40.

    Now with this Vernan Davis guy....We thought Watson is a freak, Davis is ridiculous. 4.38? Wow! If I'm the Rams, Packers (Remember how well Favre did with Chumura at TE.), Bills or Lions ( Wait, Davis would qualify as another reciever that the Lions took in the first round. Alright scratch that.) These teams should really take a look at this player. I think TE's are a little bit overlooked in today's NFL. If he can block, catch balls, and contribute on special teams, Davis could very well be more valuable then say a WR in this year's draft.

    Alright, Davis will not last after the 15th pick at the most, and if he does, the Pats will take him with the 21st pick :)

    Here are Watson's combines #'s from 2004 and Davis' from this year.

    I was a huge fan of Watson prior to the combine but when Watson put up these #'s he catapulted to the top of my Pats wish list. It appears as though Davis has bettered Watson's freakish totals.

    Watson

    6-3 1/2, 258#
    Wonderlic 41
    40 - 4.50s
    reps of 225#'s - 34
    Cone - 7.38s
    20 yd shuttle - 4.11s
    broadjump - 10'3"
    vertical - 35.5"

    Davis

    6-3 3/4, 254#
    Wonderlic ?
    40 - 4.38s
    reps of 225#'s - 33
    Cone - 7.00s
    20 yd shuttle - 4.17s
    broadjump - 10'8"
    vertical - 42"
