It’s not often you find a tight end that gets targeted like a No. 1 wide receiver, but Fred Davis is definitely that kind of commodity. Before serving his four-game suspension to close out the season, Davis was on pace for 79 receptions, 1,048 yards, four touchdowns and 117 targets.
With Jammal Brown, Kory Lichtensteiger and Trent Williams returning to the offensive line as starters and Robert Griffin III taking over quarterback duties, expect Davis to truly break out during his first year atop the depth chart.
As RGIII transitions to the professional level, the fifth-year USC product will be expected to act as his safety valve. This in turn will allow Davis ample opportunities to become the dynamic playmaker he’s already shown he can be.
If you’re looking for a tight end that comes with a limitless ceiling and is his team’s top receiving threat, skip all the brand names during your draft and go with “Freddy Franchise.”
