Summary: Davis is loaded with ability and has not even scratched the surface on his potential, which is why he is a candidate to be the top overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft. Davis is not ready to be a major contributor right away, but not many guys his size are blessed with that type of athleticism, length, and versatility. There is potential for him to be a very special player at the next level if he continues to get stronger and develop his all-around game.
Player Comparison: A young Marcus Camby. Due to his size and length, Davis is a tremendous shot-blocker and rebounder like Camby has been his entire career. Davis is more skilled with the ball than Camby ever has been, but not quite the post scorer. That should come over time for Davis, who has greater upside than Camby did.
No way the Raiders draft two white players in the first three rounds. They use only Derek Carr out of 22 starters and began the year with a league-low 4 out of 53 white players on their roster. This is a long-term trend in Oakland, definitely along the lines of an anti-New England philosophy.
NFL combine will change things quite a bit. USED DRAFT-TEK rankings. Been trying to catch as many college games as possible ( they should update their rankings, IE Kaaya is ranked # 2 on the list , Trubisky is ranked out of the top 50 )
Will see teams reach at OT & QB.
