    WR Ryan Davis Signs With Auburn

    http://www.al.com/sports/index.ssf/2...ng_late_b.html

    Alabama is interested in him. Game tape is pretty good. HE can run, I think he's a good fit for Alabama..

    I posted about him in the Hill thread,he is scheduled to visit this coming weekend and Kiffen is very high on him.He looks like he could step in and help with our return game immediately with his quickness.

    It tells me that he could get playing time with Bama.... but It's real interesting... The thing is, I"mnot sure if he can handle SEC life with his body size.

    At 5' 9" 167 lbs, I would think that it is very doubtful.

    Re: WR Ryan Davis

    He's 5'10 (with cleats), and runs a 4.75 40, plays QB in HS, and yet projects to play either WR or DB (yes, he is projected to have ability to play DB) at the college level.

    I think this falls in to the trap that a few other of the "athletes" we have recruited get us in to, and I would prefer someone who had a true "position". Just my 2 cents.

    Re: WR Ryan Davis

    I agree on this one. I'm thinking maybe he can be a small speedy Receiver who can be elusive.... and may have a maze duty, returning the kicks. He can make his career off that.

    A wr with 4.75 "speed"?


    Isn't that a bit on the slow side?

    Something sure seems off the beam here. "Blazing speed " and "elusive" comments and not so great measurable (?).

    His "elusiveness" is off the charts. He is very hard to get hands on in the open field, but doesn't have very good top end speed. As a WR he would have to learn and be a guy who ran GREAT routes to get separation, because he doesn't have the speed to leave most db's behind.

    There is also the off chance his 40 numbers could be off due to technique, and he is faster than he has been clocked.

    Re: WR Ryan Davis

    He reminds me of Drake. I'm pretty sure he can contribute almost right away this year if signed, but I would think he needs redshirt year to learn proper route, blocking and learning to do small things. Based on the filim, he didnt do much but just pretty much ran and made team look bad. I wish there was more tapes of him playing receiver spot, so we can see how good he is.. DB too. he may be a tweener, meaning coach would probably move him around a lot the first two years... kinda like Blake Sims.
