04/28/13 - The Dolphins traded their next pick, 82nd overall, to the Saints for a pair of fourth-rounders. But after two cornerbacks quickly went off the board, Ireland traded back into the third round to take Utah State cornerback Will Davis 93rd overall. The Dolphins sent a fourth-, fifth- and seventh-round pick to Green Bay for the right to choose Davis, who like Jamar Taylor will compete with Nolan Carroll and Dimitri Patterson for the third cornerback spot.
Davis, who stands 5-11 and 186 pounds, only played one year of high school football and played at three different schools in college, including one year of junior college. But he led the Aggies with five interceptions last year and has a solid work ethic that the Dolphins like. "Obviously with his experience level you would think that he may be a little bit of a developmental player," Ireland said. "But I think the guy has the skill set to play in this league. I think that with the great coaching that we have and the players around him, he will develop fast." - The Sports Xchange
03/16/13 - 2013 Utah State Pro Day: Representatives from 11 NFL teams gathered at the pro day held at Utah State on March 7, where two players who participated at the NFL Scouting Combine went through a workout held indoors on FieldTurf.

03/07/13 - 2013 Utah State Pro Day: Davis and Williams, who both excelled in last week’s NFL Scouting Combine, sat out all the measured tests except Davis’ vertical jump. However, both players did participate in on-field drills and felt good about their performances. “I probably wasn’t as smooth as I wanted to be on some of those drills, but the ball is still going to be there,” Davis said. “As a defensive back, you aren’t going to get a good ball, no one is going to throw it to you right on target. It’s going to be like that in games and you’ve got to sell out. The main thing I wanted to do today was show my ball skills and show I could catch the ball. I dropped one and that was frustrating because it was probably the easiest one of all. Otherwise I was happy.” - Utah State Football
01/22/13 - 2013 SENIOR BOWL, TUESDAY FALLER: CB Will Davis, Utah State (North Team)...After a strong senior season, Will Davis created some buzz as a possible early round draft choice, but so far through two practices, he hasn't lived up to those expectations. He has struggled on an island in man coverage, playing undisciplined and often getting turned around by receivers. Davis has the athleticism and ability to potentially start at the next level, but he needs to do a better job staying balanced to anticipate routes and gain accurate position. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
