SMU QB Matt Davis Q&A

SMU LB Stephon Sanders Q&A

Spotlight: Matt Davis

Matt Davis struggled throwing the ball again today. Davis could not seem to avoid A.J. Justice and also threw a couple of balls high. Davis was showing an improved accuracy, at least for today, early in practice when he was hitting some nice routes over the middle and to the sideline, but once he got picked off by Justice that seemed to rattle him. One thing Davis seems to be working on his patience in the pocket and not just taking off running, but instead sliding his feet.
