2009 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Nate Davis, QB, Ball State

At one point this past season, many mock drafts and player projections had the Ball State junior going as high as the middle part of the first round. But, an atrocious off-season and mediocre workouts have left behind an unpolished passer, West Virginia's Pat White and a raw prospect, Sam Houston's Rhett Bomar. Despite this, Davis is a very good athlete. He ran a slow 4.95 4o time at the Combine (has run in the mid 4.60s). With good feet movement and balance, he also has one of the most fluid and effortless throwing motions. He does a good job reading defenses and going through his progressions, and has shown good zip on deep outside patterns. Davis' arm strength is better than above average and he is very accurate while playing from an elevated passing formation such as the shut gun. He is a leader with competitive fire. On the negative, Davis does not feel the rush well. He wears a glove on his throwing hand, giving him a funky ball grip. He needs to improve his ball security. Davis is a streaky passer who is prone to mistakes. Lacking touch on shorter patterns, complex defenses tend to confuse him. he is a shot gun QB. A better QB than his late season meltdown has shown, Davis will be a better pro than college QB. He will need time to develop and adjust to the speed of the pro game, but the ability is there. Davis went from a projected late first / early second round pick, to the middle of the third round (possibly the fourth); which should make him want to prove something.

Prediction: 2nd Round

he's good but it will most likely be the second or third pick in the second round.
