I still think it's a relevant question. Our 1st pick in the draft didn't do so well in OTA's.
I thought someone might be a tad concerned.
Guess I was wrong.
It is a valid question. I think you are just forgetting where you are posting.
I could have made the same post about Rashaun Woods after his first OTA's and all the responses would have been the same.
People want to see a few bad games first before passing judgement, well hello....if you can't separate yourself in OTA's and practices, you won't be playing in any games anyway.
The fact of the matter here is every single 49er fan would have much preferred he kicked ass in OTA's. The mere fact that is what people would have wanted the most, and it did not happen is telling.
Most zoners don't have a sense of a meter reading on busthood vs Pro Bowler. Its just wait and find out in 3-4 years. Well, the people who decide these things don't wear the blinders many zoners do....you better freaking believe this does get Davis bad early marks on the grade sheet of the people who matter.
Bottom line, his playing poorly out the gate is not a good thing.
p.s. Also, mathematical odds are only one of these two linemen work out for us. Anyone who still does not realize that 1st rounders have a about a 50% success career rate is a little far behind. So this just falls into should have expected it territory if you ask me
