Practice Notes:

After a spectacular forty time, Vernon Davis was flawless during the pass catching drills.  He displayed terrific route running skill, good adjustment and consistently out ran the passes thrown to him by the practice quarterbacks.  When Davis completed 33-reps on the bench yesterday he purposely went last.  Davis admitted showing up late so he could find out what the previous best by a tight end was and beat the number.

Notre Dame tight end Anthony Fasano also had a solid pass catching workout.  Playing with good balance Fasano was on the money all day.  Scouts did have a bit of a laugh at his expense.  After declining to run the 40-yard dash, Fasano took part in one pass catching drill where tight ends run the length of the field and quarterbacks fire passes to them at different intervals.  Scouts mused why Fasano would not run the 40 but took part in this drill...which is 53-yards!

Joe Klopfenstein looked very natural all morning and solidified himself as a second round pick.  Scouts were quick to pint out Klopfenstein's blocking improved significantly at the Senior Bowl.

Garret Mills looked good during the morning session as well.

After running poor forty's, Timothy Day and Marcedes Lewis practiced significantly faster.
