OK, so, during the dragging, sweaty, uncomfortable months of summer, we flippantly mentioned that we would be profiling every player on the team. It will only be fun and worthwhile, we decided, if we were both informative AND funny. Well, it would be really fun if we were drunk the entire time, but that’s neither here nor there. Thus, for these ten weeks leading up to the UL game, we will have at least one profile a day. We hope you enjoy these as much as we enjoyed the idea of doing them, but not the actual task. Oh, and we see the egregious “that’s what she said” in the headline.
We’d also like to use this italicized space to apologize to the families of the players whose last names end in ‘A’ or ‘B’ because these early ones might suck a little.

Unfair comparison to NFL-er: Is Draak Davis in the NFL? Probably not. So, since his prep school coach compared him to Leonard Pope, we shall too.
Most interesting fact from his media guide bio: Led his high school basketball team in scoring and field goal percentage.
Something we made up about him: Hates “The Drake.” Don’t worry, everyone does.
Items of legitimate interest: Drake has caught one (tipped) pass in his career, and it was a two yard touchdown against LSU last year. He’s got great size and good hands. Chose the Cats over a couple of ACC schools: NC State and UVA.
Outlook for 2008, based on light research by our minions: Current favorite to take over at tight end, the position vacated by Jacob Tamme. An unenviable position, indeed. Also contributes heavily on special teams.
