Rd 4, Pick 128: WR Gabriel Davis UCF

Recommended Posts

It’s extremely clear, between Diggs and Davis, that improving the deep game is a priority.

 

A big, fast, physical receiver who needs to improve his route running but gets to learn from Diggs and Beasley? Can contribute on special teams, as a deep threat, and blocking right away? Yes please.

 

Oh, and this:  “effort isn’t a question. Coaches gush about his work ethic and dedication to improvement”. This is my shocked face. 😐

The legend of Duke Williams will probably be coming to an end 

 

He'll be able to socially distance with Da'Rick Rogers and Brandon Reilly soon...

I'd still like to see Jennings from Tennessee. Excellent blocker, and loves doing it. Possession reciever who helps the running game.

This could be a crazy thought, but I wouldn’t mind us going WR again in the 5th-7th. Lets stack options for Josh and hedge Davis not working out.

 

CB/S and O-Line is fine too, but I like having options in the event of injury.

I don't know that many people were familiar with a wideout from Kutztown State when he was picked in the 4th a few years ago.  Yet  he ended up in the HOF.

I don’t think they are done adding WRs or Weapons for Josh before or after this draft. 😉

Not sure the Comparison you are trying to make 


I was just joking because TO tweeted at McBeane and the Bills a few weeks ago, saying he’d be a nice addition in the resldzone. Ie good hands, good size, and high point the balls.  Also reports are/were he is having trouble driving off of his left foot so he is slow in and out of some of his breaks...sorta similar to your write up.
 

Mostly tongue and cheek.

Either big in height 6'4 plus

Or big in weight 

 

Too me davis is a big wr because he is nearly 220 at 6'2, if he was 6'2 180 I wouldn't call him big

Based upon the limited ESPN video, his route tree seems to consist of “Go Long!”

 

But we can use someone who can high point those balls now, while he’s learning to refine his game.

Not disagreeing with you - it's clear he did, just wondering why.

 

 

 

 

Right, I get how it happened, but just curious why Davis might edge the other two. I liked Peoples-Jones and Gandy, but don't hate this pick in the least either - all for it, just wondering why we may have gone this route versus others still on the board given what info is out there. Trying to look more into Davis, but wondering what stood out about him more than others if the physical part of the game is what people are saying he's known for. 

 

 

I think his toughness

like the player, seems likes big, angry type WR w/ good hands.... but seems a bit early with the CB's and OT's still on the board.  I would have preferred him in the next round, esp. w/ our WR room so full.  

It’s really not that full

I’d say big WR is 6’2” 215 lbs, if you’re thinking 6’4”+ 220+ lbs , the term big I don’t think fits.


Id say 6’4”+ 220+ would be considered “Huge”, Megatron was Huge. Julio Jones is Big.

Not on my radar, but UCF  has been a strong program the last few years.

never get on the field  We saw it last year with Duke.  I agree we need to develop more wrs  Does Yeldon ever play now with Moss added?

If you are good enough then you play.  If Duke wasn’t playing - or even dressing for games - then maybe, just maybe, he is not that good.  
 

Many rookie WR’s see limited action.  
 

This kid could be our #4, with upside, and with red zone possibilities, and maybe even a gunner in punts.

He’ll probably go to the Pats and be a perennial All Pro.
