As for one of the up and coming players on Miami's roster, rookie cornerback Vontae Davis, Singletary thinks highly of him as well and not just because Davis' older brother, Vernon, plays tight end for the Niners. Singletary interviewed Davis coming out of college and was considering him among those players he might want to draft last year.
"I remember meeting Vontae last year and having the chance to interview him for the first time and it was fun," Singletary said. "He's a likeable kid, a fun-loving kid. It doesn't take you very long to realize that he's Vernon's brother, but he's a good kid and I'm excited about what he's going to bring to Mike Nolan's defense. He's a guy that has all the tools. Last year he was the corner in the draft. He can tackle. He can run with anybody and he's a big, physical guy.
