QB Austin Davis, Southern Mississippi


Rams, UDFA. S. Miss.: Slightly below-average size. Great hand size. Eagles have shown interest.

Positives: Four-year starter. Very nice touch on deep passes. Adequate speed and change-of-direction skills. Athletic and also made a fantastic catch on trick play for TD in 2010 bowl game. Knows when to go to ground on runs and throw ball away. Average arm strength. Fair runner in short-yardage plays. Can take a hit.

Negatives: Runs spread offense 90% of the time and is uncomfortable under center. Long windup. Looks a little indecisive. Misses several wide-open receivers. Throws slightly behind receiver on slants. Has zipcode accuracy. Throws a wobbly pass. Below-average velocity, which hurts on outside throws. Eyeballs receivers. Not explosive or creative as a runner.

Projection: Not likely to contribute as an NFL starter, but will probably have a fairly long career as a long-term journeyman backup, like the man he’ll replace in St. Louis — Tom Brandstater.
