Anthony Davis is a Niner!

Sure, he's developing as a pass protector and was noted since the beginning having those issues. His run blocking is superb. However, he does show that he's got talent in pass blocking when he's on like against Matthews. I expected him to get beat soundly by Clay and didn't.

That alone is something to build from. We will know immediately once a camp starts whether or not this kid is legit. He better be in shape and better demonstrate improvement in technique or all the "labels" were right on with him--too immature.

I don't think that is the case. The one thing I truly love about the kid is the "Big Brother" mentality. He runs down field behind the RBs or QBs as a protector and will almost always be around the backs at the end of their run...that's hustle. He's nasty and loves to hit.

I expect better from him along with my man, Iupati. Now he's going to blow people up on the inside and on sweeps.

I still think Davis was the right choice.

Exactly. Once the CBA clusterf**k is rectified, he better be ready! I also think he was the right choice (unsure if giving up our 4th for him was necessary). We are all a little gun-shy from Kwame.

He may never be "pro-bowl" worthy, but a solid RT to pair with a solid LT in Staley, a "pro-bowl" quality LG in Iupati, and a better-than-expected C in Bass, we are close to solidifying the line! Cmon Rachal, put it together!

I'll be totally pissed if he ends up just being "solid". You dont take a RT that high for him to be solid. We could of got a journeyman to play at the level he played last year. However, he never played RT before last year. I would imagine it would be a tough transition. He also played some top flight pass rushers last year.

If you look at the numbers, a case could be made for Niners 2010 first-round ORT Anthony Davis perhaps being the worst tackle in the NFL last season. Davis’ 10 penalties (seven were false starts) and 11½ sacks allowed were impossible to ignore, but the way we hear it, the Niners are expecting major improvement in Davis' second season and still believe he has what it takes to develop into a top-grade talent at the pro level.

“That better be the case,” one team insider said. “He has a lot of work to do. But he has already answered a lot of questions: Will he be engaged? Will he work hard enough? He gets high marks on all those counts.”

Davis’ pass protection has been the big problem.

“His run-blocking is devastating, but in general, he really has struggled protecting the passer,” the insider said. “It seemed like he whiffed a couple of times per game. But he’s so big and athletic. And he can just destroy people. The new coaching staff seems to like him. The feeling is it’s just a matter of him learning the game. But he’s still a huge question mark. Kwame Harris [the 26th pick in the 2003 draft] was the same way — a big, quick, talented player who just never materialized.”


Giving up 11 sacks is a lot, but it's possible that was more towards the beginning and middle of the season. I sure hope he works out. He did have Solari last year.

this seems quite insignificant, in as much as this board has provn that oline play has nothing to do with how the offense performs

Having a guy like Chilo Rachal next to him doesn't help matters at all. I will say that when he had a veteran next to him, (like Adam Snyder) Anthony Davis actually played pretty well. So what does that tell you? Chilo Rachal is probably the bigger problem!
He needs to become a probowler, because teams are just going to send the best passrusher against him. They did it all last season, he will have to prove he can stop them otherwise teams will just keep doing it, dam match ups!!!! I think he's already better then k.harris, he seems to have heart and want to play football!
nowadays being a pro bowler doesnt mean too much, do they even select RT's for the pro bowl anymore? he just needs to play a little better.
Hes always getting beat by DEs wit their speed how about moving him to guard where he will face DTs who r much slower and plus his strength is run blocking just a thought let me know wat yall think
How about... NO! Just get a veteran Guard next to him to replace Chilo Rachal.
So who will play RT?
We can draft a rt we need more oline or sign a free agent or trade watever its just a thought

right, putting an inconsistent guard next to him hurt more than anything else...
i would cringe if we moved him to gurad, they say in the draft u dont take guards too high, that'd mean we took 2 in the top 17 and traded a 4th rounder to do it
NOOOO!!!!

HE'S ONLY LIKE 21 YEARS OLD....

GIVE HIM A CHANCE....

Yea i agree but if hes can run block just imagine iupati bass n davis in da middle da fastest way to da endzone is a straight line its just thought though

It's easier to coach up the 21-year old RT and then draft a guard.
