ON HIS INTERACTIONS SO FAR WITH DEFENSIVE LINE COACH KARL DUNBAR:
“We have been getting along really well. We have been FaceTiming and going over plays. I have been meeting with him since the draft. I have gotten a feel for how Coach Dunbar is, and I really like the way he coaches and teaches. I’m excited.”
GENERAL MANAGER KEVIN COLBERT:
“Carlos Davis is kind of a unique story. He and his brother, his twin brother, they both played together at Nebraska. His twin brother was drafted a round earlier. We did video interviews with those two young men during this setup, and it was entertaining to say the least. Very smart young men. Their football is still on the rise. He went to the Combine and he ran a 4.79 at 300-plus pounds. So we'll look for him as a player with definite upside, and we hope to continue to see how he develops.”
