Sparano, a former NFL head coach, who spent last year as the Raiders' interim head coach, was blown away by the athletic specimen Davis still is at age 31.
“I’d like to drink from the same fountain as Vernon drinks from because he’s not a 31-year-old athlete,” Sparano said, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. “This guy takes care of his body, he can really run, he’s athletic and still very, very explosive."
Davis turned in the worst performance of his career last season, catching just 26 balls for 245 yards and two touchdowns in 14 starts. As a result, Davis comes in at just 26th on our TE list this year. He's going very late in 12-team leagues with an ADP of the 14th round. If you're league uses two TEs, or even a TE flex, Davis may be worth a flier that late in drafts, but right now we list plenty more potential better options at the position.
