If only Emanuel Davis would have kept his work ethic up, he could have been one of the better cornerbacks in the 2012 NFL Draft.
Instead, his production never really escalated. However, Davis still remains a potential late sixth/early seventh-round pick.
Obviously he's not going to garner much exposure playing at East Carolina and in the Conference USA, but after a great start to his collegiate career, Davis gradually declined.
Through the 2008 and '09 seasons, he recorded six picks, defended 26 passes and made 114 tackles. Now, that statistical production also went down because Davis was challenged less as well.
After all, you don't see many quarterbacks attacking once they see how lock-down he was through two years. Still, Davis managed to intercept three more passes, make 116 more tackles and defend 19 passes between 2010 and '11.
This All-Star game will provide Davis another opportunity to really shine on a big stage and it'll be interesting to see how he performs. If he plays well, moving up to a late fourth/early fifth-round pick is possible.
