Default Steve Smith (rookie) or Craig Davis?

I thought that Steve Smith was better, but apparently the chargers thought otherwise.

They are kind of similar, so I was just wondering who you all think is going to be better?

Craig Davis has a lot more upside, and overall I like him more than Steve Smith, who I dont think is as fast as his 40 indicates and I dont know that his game will translate to the NFL, I still think about the Keary Colbert comparison...But I think about it and I remember Steve Smith would always manage to get behind team's defenses...I always attributed it to good route running and just kind of sneaking behind the defense, but maybe I never gave him enough credit for his speed. And lets face it, speed is the big question mark when it comes to Steve Smith because we know he's smart player who runs great routes and has reliable hands, but for a guy like him who isnt very big or physical to make it in the NFL as a starter, he's gonna need to have some speed.

I wouldn't be surprised if, 3 years from now, we're talking about Steve Smith as the better receiver. But I think Davis will be more productive for the next two seasons, at least, by virtue of his situation.

SD probably didn't draft Steve Smith because they already have a similar player like that in Eric Parker who runs good routes, had reliable hands(except in last year's playoff run), and had a 4.4 speed.

I agree, and I think because he'll see so much of the field in such a succesful system within the NFL Craig Davis will be the better reciever out of the two.

San Diego still reached.

both ran fast 40s but only Davis plays at that speed, and he is in a better system at San Diego, that will help him.

personally I think that Steve Smith will have a better career, because he runs precise routes, has really reliable hands, and while some people say his 40 time doesn't represent his speed reliably I believe that it is spot on, because while at USC he always found his way behind the defense and made some amazing catches. This isn't to say that Craig Davis will have an unsuccessful career, because I believe that he has the same abilities, just he will require a little more time to become successful.

Steve Smith. although Craig Davis might have better stats this season.


The Giants recievers have the potentail of going from crap to great in just 1 year.


last year all we had was Plaxico and Tim Carter


This year we got

Plaxico Burress
Amani Toomer (injured half of last year)
Steve Smith
Sinorice Moss (essentially a rookie cause he missed all of last year except 3 games)
'

scary huh?

No, not really... If you start press coverage on Plax, then he'll get frustrated if he can't break it. Toomer is on the down side of his career, and the other guys are essentially rookies like you said.

I couldn't have said it better myself.

Steve Smith probably won't be a #1 option, but he'll be a solid, solid #2 outlet for Eli Manning throughout his career.

GRF, the Giants don't have a top 10 WR. I'll name theten better than Plax before you cry. Steve Smith, Chad Johnson, Andre Johnson, Reggie Wayne, Marvin Harrison, Torry Holt, Roy Williams, Anquan Boldin, Larry Ftizgerald, T.O. So they can't be great without one top 10 nevermind 2 top 30, 3 top 50.

That's another thing that Craig Davis shares with Steve Smith.

San Diego still reached.
SD needed a wide receiver. Who else could they get at that position? Dwayne Jarret? We already have two of those types of receiver in Vincent Jackson and Malcolm Floyd.
I suppose we could have picked Weddle, but there's no guarantee that Davis would have been there at the end of the second round. I think I heard that Indy was high on him, which makes sense since they did end up picking Gonzales two rounds after our pick. So it's not a reach if SD got Davis before the other team did.

I like Smith better by a smidge. Smart WR's ussually seem to do good in the NFL. Not saying Davis is stupid though. I think they'll both turnout pretty well

They will both be just "good" wr IMO. Smith woulda be a bigger name coming out of SC if he hadnt been overshadowed by Jarrett. Neither will be a star but I think Smith has the better chance.

Steve Smith for me, rather easily. I had him as a 40-45 range talent, and Davis as a 60-65 talent. I'll take Steve Smith's crisp route running, great hands, ability to find holes in defense, and speed over Craig Davis' big play ability any day. Davis was extremely overdrafted and I was truly shocked to see someone use a 1st rounder on him.

If you had asked this question before the draft, everyone would have said Steve Smith. Now, because Craig Davis got drafted 30th overall, alot of people are showing support for him. I'm not buying into it, and I still firmly believe he was the worst pick of the 1st round, and one of the worst of the entire draft.
