Xavier Rhodes. Look at his measurables.

Dee Milliner. Al had no clue how to build a team. Look at how many DBs he drafted over the years. He was obsessed with them.

Al would have appreciated Dee Milliner's swag, unlike some of the posters on here!!!!

Looking at Davis' drafts the last few years, it is safe to assume the he would have drafted the most physically gifted yet raw players with glaring weaknesses in the first round. Davis didn't seem to like players that were too polished (even if physically gifted).

Proof: http://www.nfl.com/draft/history/fulldraft?teamId=2520&type=team

As much as Davis loved DBs, Milliner would be too polished for his liking.
Dion Jordan would not be good for the 4-3 defense which Davis ran.
Having JV at LT would mean no Fisher.
Star would be too polished and has heart issues.
Geno is not a Davis type QB. Meaning he is not the physical specimen.

The only prospect that fits the Davis mold is Ziggy Ansah. IMO Ziggy is the DHB of pass rushers. Because of how raw Ziggy is, it will take him a couple of years to become decent.

I think Al would have picked between Ziggy and Lane Johnson

Probably would have traded for Revis or Harvin.

Milliner is not quite fast enough.


Milliner ran a 4.37. That's equal to Charles Woodson and faster than Nnamd, both of whom he drafted in the first. 4.37 would have been plenty fast for Al, not to mention how much he loved his DBs.

Forgot about that. He would have traded for Revis and spent big bucks on Wallace.

Davis reached on DHB, but other then him, he didn't really reach on his other top 10 picks. They might not have panned out, but they generally made sense.

I don't think AD would have drafted Millner at #3. Not gifted or highly recognized enough. Would have come down to Jordan or Ansah. I lean Jordan because he's younger and plays faster on tape.
