    By Charger Ray

    The Chargers addressed their need at WR by selecting LSU receiver Craig Davis in the 1st round. Davis one of QB <a href="http://www.nfldraftcountdown.com/scoutingreports/qb/jamarcusrussell.html" target="_blank">JaMarcus Russell's</a> primary receivers finished last season with 56 catches for 836 yards and 4 TD's. Davis who ran a 4.46, 40 will be call upon to fill the void left by veteran Keenan McCardell, and become the speedy deep threat WR that the Chargers have been lacking for years.

    <strong>Strengths:</strong>
    Very athletic and still has a lot of upside...Has good size and a solid build...Timed speed is excellent and he has a burst...Hands are extremely reliable...Adjusts well to poorly thrown balls...Elusive and runs well after the catch...Big play threat who can hurt defenses vertically...Holds his own as a blocker...Also a top return man.

    <strong>Weaknesses:</strong>
    Durability is a concern...Shys away from contact and will not sell out to make the catch...Needs to improve as a route runner...Was not overly productive and didn't always play up to his ability in college...He is still somewhat raw and unpolished.
    <strong>
    Notes:</strong>
    Real name is Craig but he goes by "Buster"...Played on a very talented team and was overshadowed by Dwayne Bowe at times...Has all the tools you look for in a wideout and could really blossom at the next level if given more of an opportunity.
