They want to trade him because Oher is their future and they probably don't want to pay 2 LTs with starter salaries. Plus, his stock is high right now and it's better to get something while you can.
The sky might be the limit for Davis' potential, but that doesn't guarantee he'll perform at a high level in the NFL like Gaither has proven capable of doing. Not to draw a comparison between the two because I don't think they're anything alike, but look at Kwame Harris. He was also a high draft pick (not as high as Davis, obviously) with a lot of potential, but never panned out. The same could happen with Davis (or any player, for that matter).
