NFL Draft results: Dolphins get Will Davis, Ravens take Brandon Williams in 3rd round


Cornerback Will Davis, defensive tackle Brandon Williams and defensive end Sam Montgomery were taken near the end of the third round.

Day two of the 2013 NFL Draft is nearing its end, with just a few more picks to go until the end of the third round. With pick No. 93, the Miami Dolphins selected cornerback Will Davis out of Utah State. Immediately after that, the Baltimore Ravens selected defensive tackle Brandon Williams out of Missouri Southern at No. 94, and then the Houston Texans used the draft's first compensatory selection on defensive end Sam Montgomery out of LSU.

Miami moved up to the No. 93 pick to get Davis, dealing with the Green Bay Packers, who have been very active in the trade market. A couple seasons ago, Miami looked set at the cornerback position, but now they're in need of a couple bodies at the position. Davis became a full-time starter for the Aggies in 2012, earning first-team All-WAC honors. Davis appears to have the natural build and ability to potentially be a fixture in the NFL for a long time. He has fluid hips and quick feet.

Davis may have been higher up draft boards if he had played against BCS-level competition in college. Going from the WAC to the NFL could be a difficult transition, especially for a player whose biggest weakness is arguably his physicality, but the Dolphins should give him plenty of opportunities to succeed.

Williams was a three-time All-American, but he doesn't get the attention because he accomplished that feat at the Division-II level. Regardless of where he played, Williams is built for the NFL at 6'1 and 335 pounds. He has the strength and plays low to the ground with solid leverage. With the Ravens, he'll likely be worked in as a rotational player, something the Ravens like to do with their defensive line.

The Texans made Montgomery their compensatory selection in the third after losing Mario Williams to the Bills in free agency last year. Montgomery was considered an early second-round pick at the beginning of this offseason, but many questioned his work ethic and the interview process reportedly didn't go so well during the Scouting Combine, which accounted for his slide. That said, he should be able to rotate in and find some playing time as a rookie if he has his head on straight.
