    Davis is an important piece going forward. The FO felt so good about his play at RT that they almost dumped former 1st rounder Juann James. I think he can really help us at RG and he gives us additional depth.

    I can’t wait to see him steal that RG spot from Larsen before preseason game one.

    It's about time we start finding good O-linemen who aren't 1st round picks or high-priced FAs. We are so due.

    I think that RG position is his to lose...he played very well there last season.

    I am truly excited to see the unit come together. That could mean a night and day difference in our offense.

    Jesse Davis was actually one of the few really good surprises from last season. He way exceeded most expectations and should be in serious contention as a starting Guard. Full marks for the front office employee who evaluated him and saw the potential that other teams didn't recognize.

    I like him better at right tackle, he's longer-limbed and agile enough. But apparently, we want to waste another year and 9 million dollars watching Juwan James play half the season as a mediocre prospect so, whatever...

    He won't say it, but I will. He played well at right tackle when he was asked to fill in there, and he was DAMN good down the stretch at right guard. He picks up where he left off and the team should be talking to his agent about a long term contract by week 8.

    I believe he played well and even better later on the year. I think part was him getting more comfortable there and also him being on the same page wit Young after James went down

    I hope we discover a few more hidden gems like Davis this year too.
    This combined with a nice free agency, and a few more playmakers from the draft, the return of Tannehill, RM, we may seriously compete for the Division. We are highly underrated coming into this season imo.

    dude is an interesting case study -- undrafted then bounces around a few times -- lands on our PS and suddenly he's a player!

    It would seem he worked his ask off ramping up to handle the N F L !

    Kinda guy I’d love to extend. I think he would be ecstatic to be offered what some would be insulted with. Say 4 year 12 million, 2 million signing bonus, 6 million gaurunteed.

    Bam, his family’s future is secured and he is beholden to team.
