Davis reminds me a lot of Mark Sanchez. He has a good enough arm and can make
all the throws. He is athletic enough to run the ball when necessary but his
strength is working from the pocket and getting rid of the ball quickly. Davis
fits a west coast offensive system. He works well from the shot gun and Iím sure
given a little time he will work well under center too. He has already worked
with a few different coaches at the college level so adjusting to the NFL
coaches should not be an issue when evaluating Davis for the next level.
Davis might fit a west coast offence but his lack of consistency and accuracy
getting rid of the ball, will affect his ability to be successful in any style
of offense. All of his problems come from his lack of mechanics in his footwork.
It affects his accuracy, velocity, and consistency. Davis also lacks common
sense in his decision making thinking he is a better passer than he is and
trying to make passes his talents suggest are not his strengths.
It comes down to this, Davis thinks he is a better quarterback than he actual
is. Iím sure that he thinks he works hard at his craft but the truth is either
he works hard and is not working smart or is not working hard enough. I think he
could be a good as Jeff Garcia who was a good starting quarterback for the 49ers
but right now all I see is the inconsistency of a Mark Sanchez. Every time he
comes off his 1st receiver I hold my breath because I know he is either going to
miss the receiver badly, throw an interception or worse throw a ball he has no
business throwing because he doesnít have that type of talent. For some teams I
expect Davis has some value but for me, I would let someone else do all work and
see where he is at after his first contract is up. The gauntlet has been
dropped; I hope you prove me wrong Davis.
