Devont'a Davis:

ESPN Evaluation: Davis is a tall, talented defensive back prospect with good athleticism and scheme versatility. Rangy with a long, very lean body. Shows good skill-set and ability at corner and safety; his continued physical development may dictate his eventual college position. We like his height and length outside on the perimeter.

Can effectively play press, bump-and-run and eventually provide a favorable matchup with today's taller college receivers on the outside. For a taller corner he has good hip-fluidity and footwork. Shows the ability to mirror and redirect sharply in off-man coverages. Can turn and run vertically in man-to-man without losing a lot in transition.

Recovers quickly with good acceleration, makeup speed and proper inside positioning to deflect the pass. May be better breaking and driving on the ball in front of him. Displays very good underneath range and closing speed. Pursues with a motor and can cover the whole field.

Needs to avoid tackling high but he is aggressive on run support and will occasionally flash some pop as a hitter. Has good speed and hips but they may be better suited at safety or as a nickel corner. Our concern is that he lacks the bulk and strength right now to consistently retain his base down in the box on run support at the major college level as a safety.

Would need a lot of work in the weight room for size and strength. A bit of a hybrid corner/safety but we look at Davis as being scheme versatile and his tweener status not necessarily as a negative. His ability to cover kicks as well as return them on special teams adds to his upside. With some technique refinement and added size this athletic defensive back could develop into a good one.

Our boys couldn't make it to the next round, unfortunately. Now they can concentrate on being college players.

Kevin Nelson, ILB:

ESPN Evaluation: Nelson may be a bit undersized as a middle linebacker prospect but it's hard to find a more productive and tougher inside run stoppers than this guy. He lacks ideal height and room for physical upside is a bit limited on his compact frame, but he is thickly-built with a strong lower base and appears very durable.

Makes quick downhill reads and fills hard with very good short-area power at the point of attack. Generates great initial momentum/burst allowing him to play much bigger and make very solid contact as a hitter. Runs through his tackles and shows good pop/explosiveness from his hips. Flashes good pursuit quickness between the tackles and swarms to the football on outside run support. Consistently beats blockers to the point of attack and is able to take inside-out angles to the ball.

A lot of production comes on or behind the line of scrimmage. Closes hard and fast off-tackle with direct pursuit angles. Makes plays sideline-to-sideline aided by his high motor and good backside chase speed.

However, he is a bit straight-lined without great hip-flexibility and sharp change-of-direction skill. Struggles breaking down as a tackler at times and can overrun the play. Sifts through wash well and knifes through the small seams but may have difficulty mirroring the cutback of quicker zone backs at the next level. Lateral agility and ability to slip/sidestep the cutoff block is good not great; better filling downhill with square shoulder pads.

We would like to see him use his hands more when scraping to keep bigger blockers off his body. May need some time to physically develop in order to hold his base at the point of attack and disengage bigger blockers when reached at the second level.

That said, Nelson simply has a good nose for the football and explosiveness you just can't coach; the size should come. Plays the game fast and physical and should be a coveted linebacker on the recruiting trail.

Cane Since 1982

The Canes will be dressed for the part Saturday in Nike's all-white Pro Combat uniform, the lightest weight uniform the company has created.

According to Nike, the Canes are one of 11 elite programs to debut the uniform during November before it is officially introduced at the start of 2010.

``You don't want to lose with new jerseys,'' Jacory Harris said. ``That would be a reason for us not to wear [them] anymore.''

RIP Sean Taylor

KL you going to the game today?

RandyCane

May the Force (Sean Taylor) be with us today1 God bless his family and the Canes!

RandyCane

I remember going to the LA. Tech game in Shreveport, La. a few years ago and MM01 waiting to get his autograph after the game. MM01 had him pegged as a great one back then. He was gracious to give us a little time and spoke with us for a few minutes. Since that time he was one of our favorite Canes. He will always live in our hearts.

May the (FORCE) Sean Taylor be with us today.

Randy...nice post, well said.

Corso just called for the upset alert...

And herbstreit said no way

RandyCane

Corso picking USF is the kiss of death for them.

canechic

How can you even watch gameday today? How many crying gayturds in the crowd? Their sugar daddy is leaving.....how will they survive?

 DATcane

33-20 MIAMI!!!

RandyCane

CaneChic, since MM01 and I live in Jackssonville, the heart of Gator Country, this whole week has been about Tebow, It is really sickening. The lead story on all the newscasts has been Tebow, Tebow, Tebow.

T-shirt saying I love Tebow, buttons, toilet paper and who knows what else?

Go Noles, Go Bama, Go Texas anybody but the Gators.

theyre going o do a feature on us/usf?

DZ8

The 2010 Nobel Peace Prize has just been awarded to... Tim Tebow.

canechic

loco I will watch in on youtube before I watch that Tebow love fest. Actually I am watching "how steela got her groove back" on lifetime and looking at the hunky guys makes me feel the need for some exercise. So for a jog I must go.....

GO CANES!!!!! Got to win today....Got to win today....

RandyCane

I quess you know why Tebow is so good at prison minitries? he getss alot of practice in his own huddle.

If a UM coach had that many (30) players breaking the law they would be fired! Upper 1% of the top 1% recruited by Urban? Who knew the team roster would be posted at the PostOffice instead of in the gameday program!

I love how everybody believes urban liar when he says he's not interested in going to notre dame.. just like saban wasnt interested in bama, petrino wasnt interested in the nfl, butch wasnt leaving, and urban himself wasnt leaving utah?

RandyCane

Nelson and Davis are solid. MM01 and I have gotten to know these kids and their coaches and they are true blue. They are both ballers and will add alot of "tude" to the defense. They are great kids and the U will be very pleased with them.

KLCaneFan

Hey canechic, nope... I'm not going to the USF game today. :( We talked about it but decided to go to a bowl game instead.

Nelson and Davis were at the Virginia game and Nelson was also at the OU game. He made an unofficial visit to the Gators last weekend and came away more convinced about the U than ever.

RandyCane

Nelson and Davis were also rumored to have visited Arkansas in the past few weeks but according to their coaches it was a rumor and that's all

The rumor was started on another web site.

KLCaneFan

I'll be glad when Tebow graduates so we're not forced to watch gawd awful fluff pieces about him... or Urban Meyer emotional outbursts about his greatness. *barf*

you would think tebow just died

Today is USF's Super Bowl. It is their thought to be "Miracle On Ice". This is the kind of game that will secure Jim Leavitt's job for a little while longer if he wins it

BJ Daniels - he will take off and run at the drop of hat, need to spy him

Line Of Scrimmage - protect Jacory at all cost b/c Selvie & Pierre-Paul are coming, along with some LB blitzes mixed in ... Jacory better make his checkdowns and WRs better see what blitz is coming as well

Prove why you should be a Cane Defensive Lineman - their front 4 is still somewhat young

Aggressive like a pool of piranha on the field - you hit them every single play, even if you're not around the ball

Plancher & Ford are both grinders and will try to command the run game

Love, Hester, Bogan are their WRs and one of them will get loose on a deep route (usually Bogan) - Miami Vice or Ray Ray need to put him to sleep

Nate Allen is the leader of their Secondary - the kid can direct traffic

Kion Wilson is the leader of their front 7 at LB


One thing about USF is their D is somewhat undisciplined at times, committing stupid penalties - I've seen it in every single game I've had to watch of them this year (which is ALL of them)

Come out flat in the 1st Quarter, Canes will lose b/c USF will build off that momentum being at home & will close the door on the game. Daniels once again, will run and eat up clock & yardage

Canes by 4 - please prove me wrong Canes
