Rutgers OT Anthony Davis, a projected first-round draft pick who didn’t work out at his school’s pro day last month, held a private workout for 11 NFL teams Tuesday.
Sources who attended the workout told me he was impressive in positional drills. He weighed 328 pounds, but the source said Davis appeared very light on his feet. It was a workout that scouts needed to see.
Davis failed to show up at Rutgers’ pro day March 10. His agent told me that Davis was suffering from a sore hamstring and a stomach virus. Whatever the reason, his absence didn’t go over well. Davis had scouts coming from all over the country and he didn’t show.
Davis has a ton of potential and talent, but there are some red flags. He must understand that football needs to be important in his life.
With all that said, I could see Davis landing in the top 10 picks, maybe even to the Raiders at No. 8.
