Chris Davis

SELECTED BY TENNESSEE , ROUND 5, PICK 33, OVERALL PICK 165
RB | (5-11, 235, 4.51) | Syracuse
By Pro Football Weekly

Notes: Had run under 4.5 on a superfast rubber track and ran 4.51 at the Combine. Broke leg in high school and redshirted at Syracuse as a true freshman in 1998 after tearing his left anterior cruciate ligament and lateral collateral ligament in late September. Came back in '99, and in four carries from the tailback position gained 31 yards. Moved to fullback in 2000 and started six games with Kyle Johnson hurt. Rushed 26-86 and three touchdowns and had three catches for 21 yards. Played in every game in '01 and carried 12-28-3 and had one catch, which resulted in a three-yard loss. Started nine of 12 games in '02, when he split time with junior FB Thump Belton, carrying 31-85-1 and catching 5-35. Has a 38½-inch vertical.

Positives: Good size, speed and improving hands. Excellent timed speed. Can catch the ball well. Oustanding athleticism for a fullback.

Negatives: Lacks experience and size potential. Really not that big for a fullback. Has not been used much as a route runner. Needs to work on his blocking and pass routes. Upper-body strength could use work. Small hands.

Summary: A raw, Rob Konrad-type who could evolve on offense and is athletic enough to play special teams.
