Hat tip to MadDog for calling Davis undraftable. I didn't think that would happen given his production and measureables, but MD nailed it.
Why is Davis undraftable?

He's an athletic freak that was recruited to be the icon and start of a new era at QB for the Gophers. Inconsistency + bad coaching + bad talent around him = utilization of athleticism in any way possible. He's spent time at WR for the Gophers once they switched QBs. TE is a projected position due to his frame and physical intangibles.

He's most definitely a project pick with no defined position. I'd like to see him at TE. He doesn't have the route running skills for a pure WR, but has the speed and size to blossom as a reserve TE.

I graduated from U of MN, so I know a lot about him.

Good signing!

Never seen any of this guy. Is there any hope for him as a thrower? Is he a project QB, or just purely a "slash" athlete?

just not good enough, apparently.

When you started out "He's an athletic freak"... I thought you were going to say that he would line up as QB, throw the ball down field and then turn WR/TE and run down the field and catch it himself. I'm so disappointed.

You never know with Harbaugh, but my gut tells me TE role with his height.

He's very raw as a QB. Joe Webb would be my comparison, and the Vikings just moved him to wide receiver

Do you think with Harbaugh coaching him up he has enough tools to eventually be a quality backup QB?

Never mind...you just answered it above.

Gray is an awful passer. Just has horrible accuracy and zero touch. I think he's decently intriguing as a TE/WR, though, as he actually did well while playing receiver and showed nice hands. He really is a great jumbo athlete, but you can't let him anywhere near the ball as a thrower.

Way too tall and fragile for a FB RB role. Joe Webb is my comparison
Is McDermott only rosterable if he beats out Jennings? Or is he versatile?

Agreed, and cheaper than Jennings...much cheaper

I feel like we not only hit a homerun with our draft picks, our UDFA signings have been spot on as well. Loving it this year.

The Marquardt signing is the one missing piece of the puzzle on the offensive line as our backup tackle. Our front office has been spot on all offseason in addressing the few holes this team has. I can't wait to see how this team looks when they all hit the field together.
Read that we signed darry morris jr out of texas state.. Please someone tell me if this is true or not... Went to high school with him..
