Trust me, they can use both BFD and Cooley in this offense. We're helping Cambell out immediately with this pick. Best player available.
sounds good, red zone threat, mauler for portis to run behind. and go help the defense covering our two te sets in the red zone

I hope Davis will be converted to FB. I'd much rather have him back there then Sellers.

Okay, it's great that Fred Davis is a beast, but this would be like taking a running back who's also a beast. There's only one football on any given play.

Blocking tight ends can be found anywhere, even in undrafted free agency.

This was a bonehead pick given all the needs we have elsewhere.

Strike one for Vinny.

Might be a little premature.

Cards just picked Campbell. I'd really like us to take Connor at ILB. Take over for Fletcher next year...

Re: The official 2008 draft discussion thread

NFL Events: Draft Player Profiles - Fred Davis
Compares To: CHRIS COOLEY-Washington...As an H-back or playing the role of receiving tight end, teams will find Davis is quite successful at getting to the ball in the open. He lacks the "sand in his pants" along with bulk and strength to be a blow-up type of blocker and only gives marginal effort when blocking in-line, but he gets out in front on outside runs and while not physical, he will pester a second-level defender. He has the long reach and timing to get to the ball at its high point and has never had ball-security issues after the catch. Flex him out or keep him in motion and you will get very good production from Davis, especially when needing a bigger receiver to attack the deep secondary.
