    NFL Network's Mayock giving

    Vontae Davis some love. Says he is a top 10 talent. He is a Parcells/Sparano type of player. He is going to get plugged in from day 1. He says "trust me folks, he is an impact player"

    I like it!

    I hardly watched ESPN at all yesterday. I flipped over a couple times during commercial breaks on NFLN. I couldn't even stand watching it for 30 seconds.

    NFL Network blows ESPN out of the water with their draft coverage.

    Same here. NFL Network was what I watched. I had ESPN on my other TIVO so after we picked, I could go rewind and at least see what everyone had to say about our picks. Its been hard the last few years to watch espn. This is the first year, I have used NFLN as my main station.

    Excerpted from another scouting report, I'm beginning to really love THIS pick:

    freakishly strong and fast.

    Vontae is coming off an impressive sophomore campaign that saw him smother even the best receivers the Big Ten has to offer.

    Davis finished the season with 76 tackles, 4 tackles for loss, 4 interceptions, 8 passes broken up, and he even blocked 2 kicks on special teams.

    Other than Malcolm Jenkins, Davis is the best defensive back available in this year's draft. Davis has the potential to put up an untouchable amount of reps on the bench press, and possibly run in the high 4.3 range in the 40. Davis had a down year by his standards, but Illinois' abysmal pass rush didn't make his job any easier. He recorded 78 tackles, 7 tackles for loss, 2 interceptions, 10 passes broken up in coverage, and 3 forced fumbles during the 2008 campaign.

    During his time at Illinois, Davis has improved drastically. He has gotten to the point where opposing defenses have virtually stopped throwing in his direction; cutting the field in half for offenses. He would be a great fit for an aggressive team because he's an excellent blitzer. Davis is just as comfortable rushing the passer from the corner spot as he is in coverage.

    at the NFL Combine in February the only one of the top corner prospects to run a sub 4.5 40 yard dash, clocking in at a slightly underwhelming 4.49 seconds. He looked fluid enough during position drills that scouts think he can be an All Pro cover man if he improves his technique. His 25 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press also encouraged scouts that he has the strength to press even the biggest receivers at the NFL level.

    continues to show the athleticism necessary to be a shutdown corner in the NFL. He lowered his 40 yard dash time to 4.4 seconds at his Pro Day workout. Opinions are mixed on Davis, but he could go anywhere from eighth to somewhere in the twenties depending on how certain teams feel about him.

    "Yep. Blow it up. This might the worst team I've ever seen constructed in my life.
    And then you throw in the terrible preparation and in-game coaching. There is no defense.
    But do it right. Fire everyone in the building. No survivors. , JiF Jetnation

    So did Gruden. He loved the White pick yesterday. He gave us some major love. The only person (i saw) that really questioned the White pick was McShay.
