    Bruce Davis

    They appear to be searching for a particular type of player.  Perhaps they are not happy with Derrick Burgess.

    UCLA DE/OLB Bruce Davis Scouting Report
    Height: 6-3, Weight: 252, 40 Yard Dash: 4.78 

    Strengths: Phenomenal natural athlete with an elite first step off the line of scrimmage…perhaps the best natural pass rusher in the draft…has shown the ability to dominate even the top level of competition…has experience at both DE and OLB…great closing burst when he sees a lane to the QB and a high motor that keeps working…

    Weaknesses: Lacks the bulk and strength to play every down defensive end…he may even struggle to play OLB in a 3-4 scheme because he is not stout against the run…maybe a tweener…struggles if a blocker can get into his body…any time you ask a player to transition to a new position it is tough…high bust factor…

    Overall: Bruce Davis has set the Pac 10 on fire the previous two seasons, totaling 24.5 sacks in 2006-07 combined. However, there is some concern is a one dimensional pass rushing specialist only. He has not impressed in linebacker drills, despite being projected to a 3-4 OLB spot at the NFL level. He may be best suited to play strictly a rotational end position in passing situations. The success of the New York Giants attack and players like Chris Clemons and Antwan Odom may help Davis’ cause.

    Looks like he was a big time college pass rusher who couldn't adapt to the 3-4 OLB position in the Pittsburgh.

    Banta Cain had similar numbers at Cal.  Granted he is bigger than Davis.  Anyways, they haven't sighed him....yet.  probably adding to their files.

    I think Banta-Cain is a little smaller based on their listed weights.  Banta-Cain was also able to adapt to the 3-4 OLB role which seems to be the issue with Davis.

    I agree, they're always bringing guys in to get a feel for their ability, helps to know who/whats out there if one of your own guys goes down.
