’05 NFL Draft – Round 7

Filed in SportsTags: Colts, Draft, Indiana, Indianapolis, NFL

With the 243rd overall pick in the '05 draft, the Indianapolis Colts take Anthony Davis (RB, Wis, 5'6, 200, 4.51). From the ESPN NFL Draft Tracker:

Davis is one of the more explosive backs in this class and he also has terrific overall running skills. He's quick, shifty, decisive, tough for his size and shows a second gear in the open field. The problem when projecting him as an NFL back, however, is that he lacks size, has durability and character concerns, and has much room to improve in the passing game.

Probably a good seventh-round pick-up. Serviceable immediately as a backup for Edge, though probably too undersized to be his long-term replacement. Even so, is explosive and has home-run potential - assuming he doesn't get overwhelmed by NFL-sized d-backs.
