Rutgers OT Anthony Davis will try again 3/30

Rutgers offensive tackle Anthony Davis, considered by some scouts to be this year's best all-around OL propsect, will be working out for scouts on campus March 30, according to an email sent by his agent to NFL teams.

The 6-5, 323 pound Davis elected to leave Rutgers after his junior season after being given a first round grade by the NFL Advisory Committee. While team's love his combination of size and agility, Davis has a history of letting his weight get the better of him. Concerns about his commitment were further flamed when Davis struggled in interviews and the workout session at the Combine.

Davis was expected to be the star of Rutgers Pro Day March 10, but was suffering from a hamstring injury and the stomach flu. He arrived at the Pro Day, spoke to some teams, but was told to go home after vomiting, according to a report from NFL.com's Jason La Canfora.

Davis is a better athlete than he appeared during drills at the Combine. While an offensive tackle's time in the 40-yard dash is not necessarily an indicator of his ability to block, scouts weren't pleased that Davis was timed at 5.44 seconds in the event. Only two players who weighed less than Davis were slower. Those two, Texas' Adam Ulatoski and North Carolina's Kyle Jolly are each currently rated as potential undrafted free agents by NFLDraftScout.com.
