     Davis' 4.38 40 speed allows hims to blaze past lineman with his size and strength allowing him to bulldoze his way over opposing defensive backs in the secondary!

     For as big of a man Davis is, he displays soft hands and is good in the open field, making sure he secures the ball before turning up field after a catch. Davis also displays finesse with smooth and precise route running whether it is underneath the secondary or utilizing himself as a downfield threat!

     In addition to his stellar receiving game, Davis also provides solid protection with his size and strength matching up well against any Defensive End and Linebacker that creates mismatches allowing the offense to execute plays and be productive.

     Whether as a receiver or an extra blocker, opposing defenses will definitely key in on Vernon Davis due to his versatility and ability to create mismatches because of it. Make no mistake about it, Davis is one of the best Tight Ends in the game today, and perhaps when all is said and done, will be one of the greatest ever to play the game!
