Redskins TE Fred Davis hasn’t been a favored target of QB Robert Griffin III throughout training camp. It’s WR Pierre Garcon. And it makes sense.
Why? Because of who Garcon is: competitive, strong, fast. That’s the sort of security blanket any young quarterback would want. And that’s why you see Griffin and Garcon connecting not only in Thursday’s game vs. Buffalo (three catches, 58 yards) but all throughout camp.
Meanwhile, Davis continues having a quiet camp. Maybe he’ll have a big year; he definitely has the talent. But Garcon is the guy that Griffin seems to trust most these days.
“Just his tenacity after he gets the ball,” Griffin said. “He’s confident going across the middle because he knows nobody can really punish him because of his body. He’s got great hands, downfield speed and he’s big and tough. He’s got the total package.”
Davis has been a guy we've been targeting in the 7th round, so this report is a little concerning. Griffin can't throw to Garcon on every pass play, so Davis should have plenty of opportunity to produce. On the flip side, Garcon has had a great camp and is slowly climbing up our rankings. He is currently our #29 WR.
