NFL Draft 2009 Round 1 #25- Miami Dolphins- DB Vontae Davis

Miami definitely is in need of help at Defensive back.

ESPN writes- Davis is the best pure cover corner in his class. He’s fluid changing directions, shows great burst coming out of his cuts and is fast enough to run with wideouts downfield. Davis is more than a one-dimensional player, too. He’s a playmaker and can defend the run when he puts his mind to it. So why didn’t he come off the board earlier? There are questions about his work ethic and teams were likely wondering if he would to play to his ability.

An underacheiver then. It will be interesting if this pick works out for Miami. Other high DB picks(Jason Allen and Jamar Fletcher) in recent Dolphin draft history haven’t worked out too well.
