49ers TE Vernon Davis may have been the most prolific pass-catcher during the recent three-day minicamp, an indication that the tight end is picking up where he left off at the end of last season. On Tuesday, Davis had a leaping back-shoulder catch in the back of the end zone that required him to get his feet in bounds as his momentum was carrying past the end line.
It was a fantastic catch in itself. But it's downright astounding if you had seen Davis as a rookie in 2006. He was so raw, so muscle-bound, so inept when it came to any throw in which he wasn't squared to the ball. The degree to which he's improved over that span can't be overstated.
