Agent Todd France confirmed the deal Friday for Davis, the cornerback who played at Illinois and was the 25th pick in the first round. Davis is expected to compete with second-round choice Sean Smith and veteran Eric Green for the starting job that became available when Miami lost Andre Goodman in free agency. The Dolphins want to upgrade a secondary that ranked 25th in the NFL against the pass last year.
Davis has been a bit on the defensive ever since the media reported he had a run in with Illinois cops. The reports turned out to be false and some other guy had actually stolen the new Dolphin's identity. So no worries when Davis goes to cash that big check.
Yet to sign are Wildcat Weapon X Pat White, a second-round pick, and Clemson safety Chris Clemons, a fifth-round selection. The first training camp practice is Sunday.
