2013 NFL Prospect: WR Marcus Davis, Virginia Tech 6'4 220

Marcus Davis the former QB turned WR, has the size and speed to stretch a defense. A raw prospect with the skills to develop. A strong receiver who can make the catch when double-teamed. He uses his large frame to shield defenders from the ball. Davis does a nice job of running after the catch. A tough runner who fights for additional yardage, Davis can be tough to bring down. He will be relied upon much more with the departures of WR Danny Coale and RB David Wilson. His numbers were not jaw dropping from 2011: 30 Rec's, 510 Yards, and 5 TD's. Yet opportunities were hard to come by with Wilson and Coale in the lineup.

Davis attempted to make the most of every one of those limited opportunties, which led to concentration lapses and drops. He pressed too hard to make something happen. This offseason Davis has worked hard to correct those issues. In spring practice coaches noted improvement in the technical aspects of his game. Davis is not a finished a product. To his credit, he seems to understand this better than anyone, hence the time and effort spent to improve his craft.

With his natural athletic abilities and drive to improve, it is not difficult to imagine Davis being a solid WR this season. I was impressed with his performance against Virginia this past season. He demostrated an ability to be an effective route runner, and a vertical threat. There is no doubt that Davis needs work, there is also no denying his talent, albeit raw. With solid coaching at the next level, Davis could become an excellent NFL receiver. At this point with his low production level and raw ability, I see him as a 4th rounder with potential to move up with more production.
