Davis?????

Listening to ESPN's draft special (they analyze the saints tomorrow), I heard Kiper say that Vernon Davis is the 7th rated player in the draft. Has his stock really risen that fast? Will he be a top ten? They say he is the best TE to come out in years.

ps Anyone know a good raiders site like this one? I'd like to hear what the Raider Nation is saying about Brooks!

They can be as optimistic about brooks as they want, but we have all watched him make horrible plays for the past few years. Yes, he was a good QB for the first two years, but then he dropped off. I hope Brooks can put it back together in Oakland, he cant play much worst than he did in NO.

As far as Davis goes, I really don't think he will go in the top ten. there are too many other players that can go before him, and all the top ten teams need more than a TE for fix there problems. He's likley to go in the middle of the first. Of course, with Detroit picking at #9, you never know with Matt Millen.

I see just the opposite he is one of three picks that will go between 2 and 6. DBrick, AJ, and then Davis are the closest thing in the draft to a sure thing. I would add Bush but he will be gone at #1 anyways. After these 4 the rest are great ball players. These guys are once every ten years players. In davis's case we have NEVER seen a player like him in the draft before at TE.

What's the over/under on lateral passes Brooks completes to the "Black Hole"?

Trading with the raiders and drafting Davis at 7 will help mask our thin WR corp. I say thin because we have nothing behind Horn and Stallworth..and Stallworth is being shopped so that only weakens it. Kansas City and San Diego have been able to have productive offenses with less than spectacular WR's and a freak TE. Maybe we do the same thing.

Anyone remember Ricky Dudley? No player is a sure thing and though I think Davis will have a very good career, he is being over-hyped.
