    Thank you. While Vernon may not be popular thanks to Napo, you guys shouldn't hate on VD. Dude is gonna tear it up in the NFL - although probably not for us (I do not think a TE in the first round would be very prudent, but getting VD at 17 would be a steal)

    Aside from his accomplishments in college (the guy straight up is a great player, and if you guys ever watched him play you'd be on his bandwagon too) his draft stock will continue to skyrocket. He was named first team All-American, the first Terp to do so on offense since 1955. Apparently, Mel Kiper has graded him as a better TE prospect than he had Kellen Winslow rated, and wait for VD to shatter every mark for a TE at the combine.

    When we drafted an insane athlete with all-world speed that could jump out of the gym in the first round of the 1998 draft, how many of you guys moaned this much about his physical talent? Keep in mind that VD is coming out of Maryland, the school that produced Shawne Merriman, this year's ROTY, who dramatically increased his draft stock after a great showing at the combine. His physical attributes were coveted by the NFL much like Davis's will be.

    What gets to me is that everyone is saying don't judge a football player by his physics, when last year everyone was drooling over Mike Williams because of that exact reason (I was one of those).

    After the combine work out his stock will rise so crazy it'll be near impossible to get him. I guess that's okay with me as long as we get White, DeAngelo or Greenway.

    Who's laughing now Napo!?

    Did Napo got a little bench time or sent to the showers?

    If he was JUST a musclehead or a workout warrior, I would say let's use caution when judging him.

    However, I've seen the guy play and he's no David Boston. This guy is not gonna fall to 17. He was one of the most productive TE's in college football this year (especially considering he had Sam Hollenbach throwing him the ball the majority of the season) and will produce at the next level.

    There's another guy who has saw him first hand. Let the haters hate, guys gonna be an animal.

    Aside from his amazing physical tools he has had much sucess playing football, and he's still just a junior, sky's the limit for this guy.
