If the Niners drafted McCoy or Snead or Bradford, Davis would never have a shot at a starting job here most likely.
Which is why we need to work him into the offense gradually. Like I said before, if Hill is stinking it up, our season is done. We might as well put Nate Davis in on occasion to see a little bit of what we actually have with him. If he doesn't get put in there against real NFL players and we stink it up at QB this year, how will we know if we actually NEED to draft another QB? We'd have no idea if Nate Davis could be our guy because we will never have seen him play against starters. We might not even need to draft another QB, but we'll never know it because without seeing Davis on gameday we will likely pick up a QB with a high draft pick and Davis will be a backup no matter what.

Not the fact that he hit the targets on the move. I've
seen many NFL QB's in this kind of challenge that have
done well, but sucked in the NFL.
What impressed me is how effortless he made it look. He has
the natural skillset needed. It seems as if he has the intangibles.
That "IT" factor.
Wow. His deep ball is beautiful. The kid has a cannon. His upside is looking tremendous!
