Meet LB Buster Davis from Florida State

New, comments

Admit it Buc fans . . . This team of ours has missed a little flair, a little talk, a BIG MOUTH. A player who could talk the talk and walk the walk. That guy was: Warren Sapp. He made every game interesting, whether it was chirping in Favre's ear or yelling down an opposing coaches throat, Warren Sapp had flair.

Let me introduce you to Warren Sapp Lite: Line-Backer Buster Davis from Florida State. He's small in stature 5'10 240 lbs, but he is built like an ICE BOX. This past season for FSU he tallied 102 tackles (7 for loss), 5 sacks, and 1 interception. Buster was hands down the vocal leader of Mickey Andrews defense.

from Football's Future:

"Buster Davis is a very aggressive and instinctive linebacker. On every snap, he is looking to knock down as many opponents as possible, and fly to the football. He quickly diagnoses the play, and explodes to the action. With his quickness and instincts, Davis is always around the ball. He is the type of player that you try to stay away from on every play, and you know when he hits you."

The knock on Buster is that he is small. Let me direct you to a short list of so-called small LB's that have made a very nice name for themselves:

Derrick Brooks 6'0 235 lbs.
Zach Thomas 5'11 228 lbs.
Cato June 6'0 227 lbs.
Ernie Sims 5'11 221 lbs.
Lofa Tatupu 6'0 238 lbs.
and the list goes on . . .

Buster is definitely worth a HUGE LOOK
