What if they held a pro day and nobody came? Such was nearly the fate of early exiting Ball State quarterback Nate Davis on Friday, when only the Indianapolis Colts showed up to watch him throw (http://www.thestarpress.com/article/20090321/SPORTS2001/903210327/1006/SPORTS) to various Cardinal receivers on BSU's home field, and that probably only because it wasn't much of a drive for them. For Nate's sake, I hope the Colts liked what they saw as much as the local Muncie Star Press and mentor Steve DeBerg: Davis' stock is apparently plummeting, from day one possibility to late-round afterthought due to his size, Ball State's shotgun-based offense and ball security issues (he has a weird grip on the ball (http://blog.cleveland.com/sports/college_impact/2008/10/large_nate-davis.jpg) and fumbled multiple times in both of BSU's season-ending losses to Buffalo and Tulsa).

Imagine if the colts didn't show up? Some things in his game must have been exposed at the NFL combine.

He also apparently has a learning disability.

Trust me, his "learning disability" is not what people make it out to be. Shooting jumpers in the gym, and walking around in the halls during class is his "learning disability". Nate was treated like a GOD at Bellaire and never had to do anything. I grew up with him my whole life, the only "learning disability" he has is not trying at all.
