NFL Network Analyst Charles Davis Talks NFL Draft Sleepers

TRANSCRIPT

WHEN I DO THE COMBINE AND
DRAFT, I HAVE MAYOCK WHO IS
HARDCORE ON ONE SIDE.
I GOT DANIEL JEREMIAH ALSO THERE
WHO IS AS WE KNOW, HE'S A LITTLE
BIT MORE OUT IN THE WORLD THAN
MAHOCK.
AND THEN THIS MAN.
AM I NOT WRONG?
>> MAYOCK HAD BEEN REPROGRAMMED,
RIGHT?
>> NOT THE FIRST TIME I'VE HEARD
THAT.
THAT'S MIKE'S GO-TO.

>> A LITTLE BIT OF CABERNET IN
HIM?
>> THAT'S MIKE'S GO-TO.
THAT'S MIKE'S THING.
WE HAVE IT ON TAPE.
WE HAVE MIKE DANCING SENIOR
BOWL.
ABOUT YOU THAT'S HIS GO-TO TO GO
TO THE GEORGE CLINTON P FUNK.
IF HE WENT TO THE FOLLOW UP, I
WOULD HAVE WALKED OUT.
>> HIS GO-TO FOR MOVIES IS
STRIPES.
HE KNOWS NOTHING ELSE.
DIRECTOR†-- I TOLD THIS ON THE
PODCAST.
MIKE AND I SHOT A SCENE FOR IT.
AND WE'RE WAITING FOR THE
DIRECTOR IN RADIO CITY.
WE'RE DONE WITH THE CONVERSATION
AND I SAID, MIKE MAYOCK LOVES
STRIPES.
FIGURED BRING THEM TOGETHER.
THEY START TALKING ABOUT THIS,
THAT, FINALLY MAYOCK SAYS THE
MOVIE JUST SORT OF WENT DOWN
HILL WHEN YOU WENT TO GERMANY.
>> AND THAT WAS IT.
>> I'M LIKE, MIKE, NOT
EVERYTHING NEEDS AN EVALUATION,
RIGHT?
NOT EVERYTHING NEEDS TO BE
EVALUATED.
>> WHEN THE BIG VEHICLE HIT
GERMANY, STRAIGHT DOWNHILL.
>>> I WANT TO SHOW I CAN BE THE
FACE OF THE FRANCHISE ONE DAY.
IT'S NOT REALLY IMPORTANT TO BE
THE FIRST PICK, BUT IT IS
IMPORTANT TO ME TO BE PICKED.
>> THAT'S JAMEIS WINSTON AFTER
HANGING OUT WITH THE TAMPA BAY
BUCCANEERS YESTERDAY, FIRST I
GUESS FORAY BETWEEN THE BUCKS
AND JAMEIS WINSTON TO TRY TO
FIGURE OUT IF THEY ARE A MATCH.
WHO BETTER TO ASK THAN ONE OF
THE GUYS I WATCH ON PATH TO THE
DRAFT EVERY DAY ON NFL NETWORK,
REQUIRED APPOINTMENT VIEWING
THIS TIME OF YEAR.
CHARLES DAVIS, GOOD TO SEE YOU.
>> THANKS FOR HAVING ME.
>> OF COURSE.
SO AS WE ARE SITTING HERE FIRST
WEDNESDAY IN MARCH, WINSTON LAST
THURSDAY IN APRIL, FIRST NAME
PICKED STILL FOR SURE?
>> YES.
AS WE SIT HERE RIGHT NOW,
DEFINITELY.
>> WHAT HAS GONE ON WITH MARIOTA
THAT WINSTON HAS SWOOPED IN
FRONT OF HIM?
GOING INTO THE ROSE BOWL FRESH
OFF THE HEISMAN.
MARIOTA WAS NUMBER ONE ON A LOT
OF PEOPLE'S MOCK DRAFTS.
>> INTERESTINGLY ENOUGH, NOTHING
HAS REALLY GONE WRONG WITH
MARCUS.
I KNOW A LOT OF PEOPLE AFTER THE
CHAMPIONSHIP GAME PEOPLE WERE
SAYING HE DIDN'T DO THIS, HE
DIDN'T DO THAT.
MY HUMBLE OPINION, IF YOU WATCH
THE TAPE, HE'S ONE OF THE FEW
OREGON DUCKS THAT MEASURE UP
THAT NIGHT.
IT WAS A TOUGH NIGHT TO THEM.
OHIO STATE†--
>> HIT THEM IN THE MOUTH.
>> EACH AND EVERY ONE OF THEM.
JUST STUNNING.
BUT I THOUGHT HE COMPETED
REALLY, REALLY WELL THAT NIGHT.
YOU REMEMBER WHEN HE HURT HIS
SHOULDER†--
>> CAME BACK IN.
>> I THOUGHT THAT SPOKE VOLUMES.
>> DOWN THREE SCORES.
>> HE COULD HAVE GONE.
NOT HIS THING.
HE'S A†-- I ALWAYS CALL HIM A
QUITE ASSET.
HE WON'T SAY A WHOLE LOT.
BUT HE DIDN'T DO ANYTHING HERE
WRONG.
JAMEIS WINSTON ASCENDED TO THE
SPOT MOST OF US THOUGHT HE
SHOULD BE IN.
THE OFF THE FIELD WAS THE STORY.
HE HAD TO WIN THE PERSONALITY
CONTEST, THE PROJECTION CONTEST
AT INDIANAPOLIS.
THE ON FIELD STUFF, THAT WAS
ALREADY IN HIS POCKET.
HE HAD TO PRESENT IN A WAY THAT
PEOPLE WOULD GET COMFORTABLE.
MARCUS MARIOTA WAS JUST HIMSELF,
BUT JAMEIS WINSTON OPENED UP THE
BOOK THAT SAID IT FACTOR.
>> WITH MARIOTA, I HAD CHRIS
FOWLER ON YESTERDAY AND HE WAS
MARIOTA IS NOT ONLY ACCURATE, HE
CAN HIT THE FINGER TIP OF HIS
RECEIVER.
LIKE RIGHT ON THE SPOT.
AND THINKS ABSOLUTELY HE CAN DO
WHAT PHILIP RIVERS IS SORT OF
SCHOOLING HIM IN DOING, THROWING
TO HIS LEFT AND CALLING OUT
PLAYS TO HIMSELF AT THE MIRROR
SORT OF MAYBE HE'S STANDING
THERE LIKE LeBRON TAKING
PICTURES OF HIMSELF IN THE
MIRROR.
THE QUESTION IS, THOUGH, I'VE
SEEN YOUR MOCK DRAFT, SOMETIMES
YOU HAVE MARIOTA FALLING AS LOW
AS TEN.
DO YOU THINK THAT HAPPENS?
>> I THINK THERE'S A STRONG
POSSIBILITY OF THAT HAPPENING.
CHIP WOULD LOVE TO GET HIS HANDS
ON A GUY THAT HE TRUSTS RIGHT
HOW TO GO.
CHIP UNDERSTANDS IN MY HUMBLE
OPINION THAT THIS IS A LEAGUE OF
NOW.
AND WHAT WERE THEY, 9-3 LAST
YEAR BEFORE EVERYTHING FELL OFF?
WENT FROM ONE YEAR WHERE, WOW,
EVERYTHING CHIP DOES IS GREAT,
WHAT HE BROUGHT IN IS TERRIFIC,
TO THE VERY NEXT YEAR AT THE END
OF THE YEAR, PEOPLE STARTING TO
QUESTION IT AGAIN.
YOU HEAR LaSEAN McCOY THERE WAS
FRICTION WITH HIM AND CHIP AND
CHIP TRYING TO GET THAT CULTURE
OF HIS GUYS INTERESTINGLY
ENOUGH, THERE ARE NINE OREGON
DUCKS ON THE ROSTER RIGHT NOW.
HE WOULD LOVE TO HAVE A TENTH
AND HAVE IT BE MARIOTA, I
BELIEVE.
AND I CAN UNDERSTAND WHY.
BUT THE PROJECTION OF MARCUS
MARIOTA ISN'T AS SIMPLE AS GO TO
PHILADELPHIA AND HE'LL BE
SUCCESSFUL.
I THINK HE'LL BE SUCCESSFUL A
LOT OF PLACES.
TIMING IS THE KEY.
I THINK HE CAN LEARN TO DO ALL
THE THINGS WE'VE TALKING ABOUT.
OLD SCHOOL GUYS ESPECIALLY.
NOWADAYS, WE DON'T ASK OUR
QUARTERBACKS TO DO THAT.
WE DON'T HUDDLE.
THEY DON'T CALL PLACE.
>> YOU HAVE THE GUYS THE BEST AT
IT ARE THE ONES FROM THE NECK UP
WHO CAN DISSECT YOU ON THIRD
DOWN BY SWITCHING STUFF UP.
AARON RODGERS, PEYTON MANNING,
ANDREW LUCK.
AND WE KEEP ON SAYING CAM NEWTON
HAS BEEN A BETTER PLAYER FROM
THE NECK UP.
BUT IN THE FEW MINUTES I HAVE
LEFT WITH YOU, I'M WITH CHARLES
DAVIS, WATCH HIM ON PATH TO THE
DRAFT AND ON TWITTER@CFD 22,
WHAT DOES CHIP DO IN THE DRAFT
IF HE GOES IN THE DRAFT AND GETS
A RUNNING BACK SOME WHO IN THIS
DRAFT MIGHT BE THE GUY WHO HE'S
LIKE THAT FITS MY STYLE THAT'S
MY GUY, I CAN GO GET HIM AND
FILL THE LeSEAN McCOY VOID?
>> IF HE'S FORTUNATE TO GET TODD
GURLEY AT 20, BECAUSE OF HIS
KNEE INJURY WHERE PEOPLE MAY
PASS, HE FITS EVERYTHING THAT
YOU'LL WANT.
A HEAVY STRONG RUNNER WHO CAN
CATCH THE BALL OUT OF THE
BACKFIELD AND CAN MAKE ANY PLAY
INTO A HUGE ONE.
AT 20, HE COULD MAKE THAT
DECISION LIKE THEY DID WITH
WILLIS McGAHEE.
TO ME WITHOUT THE KNEE INJURY,
NO QUESTION IN MY MIND HE'S
NUMBER ONE RUNNER IN THE DRAFT.
WITH THE KNEE INJURY, SOME
PEOPLE MAY REEVALUATE AND SAY
MELVIN GORDON, BUT I DON'T THINK
HE'S AS DYNAMIC.
GURLEY IF YOU SAY HE'S A HOME
RUN HITTER IN BASEBALL, GORDON
WILL GET YOU A WHOLE LOT OF
DOUBLES AND OCCASIONAL TRIPLE IN
A DIFFERENT WAY THAN GURLEY.
BUT THOSE ARE THE TOP TWO GUYS.
>> PRIOR TO THIS TRADE, YOU HAD
GURLEY GOING TO THE RAVENS AT
26.
>> ABDULLAH AT NEBRASKA FITS
WHAT HE DOES.
KEVIN COLEMAN WOULD BE ENTERING.
HE'S A LONG DISTANCE RUNNER.
>> FROM INDIANA.
>> DON'T KNOW HOW MUCH HE CATCH
IT IS OUT OF THE BACKFIELD AND
THAT'S A MUST.
SOMETHING THEY HAVE TO CONTINUE
TO WORK ON.
THOSE ARE THE TYPES OF GUYS THAT
I'M LOOKING AT AND I THINK AN
ABDULLAH WOULD BE ABSOLUTELY
SENSATIONAL OR AJAH WILL I.
>> THANKS FOR COMING IN.
>> ANYTIME YOU WANT ME, I'LL GET
OVER HERE.
>> DEFINITELY WANT THAT.
DO YOU WANT TO ANSWER THE POLL
QUESTION?
>> YEAH, WHY NOT.
>> CHARLES, ARE THE EAGLES GOING
TO WIN A PLAYOFF GAME IN 2015,
YES OR NO?
>> I'M SAYING YES, THEY WILL.
PHILADELPHIA EAGLES FIND A WAY
TO WIN A PLAYOFF GAME.
>> THERE YOU GO.
A SUNNY BRIGHT OUTLOOK GUY.
THE GLASS IS HALF FULL FOR
CHARLES DAVIS.
>> I'M TRYING NOT TO BE NEGATIVE
HERE.
>> TOUGH TO SWALLOW.
BECAUSE AGAIN CHIP KELLY COMES
IN, WHAT'S HE GOING TO DO WITH
VICK, JACKSON, McCOY.
>> AND THEY'RE ALL GONE.
>> GET RID OF ALL OF THEM.
>> BUT YOU HAVE JEFF MAYLE.
>> HE KNEW HE HAD McCOY TO TRADE
IN HIS BACK POCKET.
AND WE'LL REVISIT AT THE TOP OF
THE NEXT HOUR THE CURT SCHILLING
STORY ABOUT WHAT IS GOING ON
WITH HIM AND HIS TWIT-LANTY
JUSTICE.
WHAT CAN TWITTER DO ABOUT THIS
SORT OF CONVERSATION?
WE HAVE THE HEAD OF POLICY
COMMUNICATIONS COMING UP AT THE
TOP OF THE NEXT HOUR.
ANTONIO CROMARTIE ONE OF THE TOP
FREE AGENTS, WILL HE GO BACK TO
THE JETS.
WILL HE STAY PUT IN ARIZONA.
WOODY PAGE, WHAT IS GOING ON
WITH PEYTON MANNING'S CONTRACT
AND ALSO BRIAN SHAW BEING
BOUNCED AS HEAD COACH OF THE
NUGGETS.
THAT'S STILL TO COME.
THANKS FOR COMING IN, CHARLES.
