7 NFL Combine stars who actually became great pros – FOXSports.com
In the first year of the NFL’s more complete Combine record-keeping, the former Maryland tight end posted a 40 time that forced scouts to check their stopwatches: 4.38 seconds. For a guy standing 6-foot-3, 248 pounds, that’s obscene. Only Dorin Dickerson (who went on to play sparingly for six teams until 2015) has come within a tenth of a second (4.40) of Davis among tight ends since.
Davis also recorded a 42-inch vertical, third-best ever behind Dickerson (43.5) and Virgil Green (42.5). Davis has seen some ups and downs in the league but mostly ups, with 505 receptions, 6,404 receiving yards, 57 receiving TDs and two Pro Bowl nods (2009, 2013).
