Virginia Tech WR Marcus Davis ran an official 4.56 forty at the NFL Combine.
Davis' 10 yard split checked in at 1.63 seconds. The Hokie receiver's game is built on athleticism, so make sure not to count that "upside" twice. Davis struggles to track the ball downfield and tends to give limited blocking effort, but he could be taken in the sixth- or seventh-round. Sun, Feb 24, 2013 03:57:00 PM

Virginia Tech WR Marcus Davis measured 6-foot-3 1/8 and 230 pounds during this week's East-West Shrine weigh-in.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler has likened Davis' receiving upside to Dez Bryant's, and he certainly is built like the Dallas Cowboys' star getting off the bus. Davis has huge hands (10 1/8") and arms that would be suitably long for an NFL left tackle (33 3/4"). We sure wish he were a better football player.

CBS Sports draft analyst Dane Brugler compares Virginia Tech WR Marcus Davis' receiving ability to Dallas Cowboys star Dez Bryant's.

Brugler anticipates Davis testing "very well" at February's Combine in a t-shirt and shorts. Brugler, however, concedes Davis' game tape "paints a different picture," as he had a very inconsistent senior season as a blocker and catcher of the football. Davis is currently participating in East-West Shrine Game practices. He could really benefit from a positive pre-draft showing.

Virginia Tech senior WR Marcus Davis caught four passes for 64 yards against Rutgers on Friday.

Davis is going to show very well in workouts, but his impact on the field is not always felt in a positive way. We all know about his skeptical blocking effort, but Davis can really stretch the field vertically. However, the senior's hands are not reliable, so a team will have to keep that in mind when assessing his possible immediate impact.

Virginia Tech senior WR Marcus Davis torched Duke Saturday for 144 yards on five catches and two touchdowns.

After the game, junior quarterback Logan Thomas says Davis is "a superior athlete, to anybody on our team even. So yeah, I expect him to win every jump ball." Davis is rough around the edges, specifically in and out of his breaks on routes, but his athleticism is undeniable.

According to SI's Tony Pauline, NFL scouts consider Virginia Tech senior WR Marcus Davis' early season play "inconsistent."

Pauline says that Davis was graded as a potential top 45 selection prior to the season due to his combination of height, weight, and speed, but the senior is showing roughness around the edges. Specifically, the Hokie will not come down with the difficult catch every time. The entire Virginia Tech offense has somewhat surprisingly struggled.

Virginia Tech senior WR Marcus Davis recorded four catches for for 129 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's game against Pittsburgh.

The majority of Davis' yards came on an 85 yard reception where he broke a few tackles and showcased his straight-line speed to run away from the defense. Davis is an excellent size and speed prospect, but there are questions about his consistency.

Heading into this spring, Virginia Tech flanker Marcus Davis was expected to become more of a contributor to the offense and he has responded by moving up to Co-No. 1 flanker alongside Danny Coale.  Davis has built a good rapport with new quarterback Logan Thomas and in the team's last scrimmage, led all receivers with three grabs for 51 yards.

Whenever you are breaking in a new quarterback, rapport is one of the biggest differences between stellar production and regular production.  Look for Davis to climb the depth chart and receive quite a few targets from Thomas.

Virginia Tech wide receiver Marcus Davis left in the first quarter of the Hokies' game with Miami after a concussion, and did not return.

He caught one pass for 17 yards.  It's a shame for Davis, who was coming in to his own late in the year, and caught two touchdowns last week at UNC.  No word on Davis' status for next week against Virginia.

Virginia Tech wide receive Marcus Davis snagged four balls for 81 yards and two touchdowns against North Carolina.

He did drop a deep ball, keeping this from being a tremendous breakout performance, but a great showing nonetheless.  Don't add him just yet, but certain file this name away.

As the Virginia Pilot reports, it's time to add wide receiver Marcus Davis to the ever growing list of playmakers in Blacksburg.

The 6 foot 4, 230 wideout has a ridiculous skill set, and spent the offseason catching passes with tennis balls taped to his palms.  No way OC Bryan Stinespring came up with that idea, because we all know he has no creativity.  Look for Davis to see some direct snaps in the "Wild Turkey" formation, and maybe a few red zone targets.  He's not worth a roster spot in ACC leagues now, but he's certainly a name to file away.

Virginia Tech wide receiver Marcus Davis has been singled out by offensive coordinator Bryan Stinespring as a potential breakout candidate.

“I think there’s a guy out there, and his name is Marcus Davis, who I think could be really special. There’s room for him at receiver, and we won’t venture away from the Wild Turkey," said Stinespring.  At 6-foot-4, 234 pounds, the former quarterback Davis does offer some versatility.  The Hokies didn't feature much "Wild Turkey" last season, at least not on the field so we'll have to see how the playcalling shakes out.  In a conservative offense however, Jarrett Boykin figures to remain the lone receiver of national relevance.
