Davis and Fuller will participate in the East-West Shrine Game at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla., at 4 p.m. It’ll be televised by the NFL Network or you can listen to it live online here. Both are on the East roster. Davis is No. 15. Fuller is 83.
Davis sounds like he could use a big game after a so-so week of workouts, according to observers.
“Davis came into the week as likely the highest rated receiver (and one of the highest players overall) at the event,” wrote Eric Galko of Optimum Scouting. “And with his natural size and ideal body type, he looked as though he would impress. But he struggled more than any receiver I’ve ever seen to track the ball vertically, struggled with getting separation on in-breaking routes at times, and had inconsistent hands all week.”
Taylor will play in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl at the Home Depot Center in Cason, Calif., at 6 p.m. It’ll be televised on ESPN2.
“The linebacker group showcased the best player at the NFLPA Bowl practices in Bruce Taylor. Playing in a different scheme than what he was accustomed to at Virginia Tech, it took some time for Taylor to grasp fulltime strongside responsibilities, but he became acquainted quickly and it was obvious he was one of the more instinctive players on defense. He’s slightly undersized at under 6-2 but built well with really long arms. He showed very good route recognition during team sessions and diagnoses plays quickly. He also uses his hands well in traffic to keep trash away from his feet and blockers out of his body. He made several plays on the ball during team sessions.”
