Chris Davis WR 5 5Sr 4/5 Reliable pass catcher who took his game to another level this season.  Also effective returning punts.
Buster Davis ILB 7 5Sr 2/3 Tenacious linebacker constantly flying around the ball.  Limited by size as he touches the tape just over 5-feet-9-inhces.  Could end up on the weak side.
De'Cody Fagg WR 81 3Jr 4/5 Steady wide out with tremendous size/speed numbers.  Does not always play to them and must take his game to the next level.
