Since the Chargers drafted him in the first round in 2007, WR Buster Davis has often earned rave reviews for his work in practice. The only problem: His dazzling talent has never carried over into game action, as he has just 30 catches for 299 yards and one touchdown in three seasons. The hype machine is in full gear again this offseason, with Davis shining in OTAs and minicamps, making one spectacular grab after another. As usual, though, it's likely too early to point to this as his breakout year. From what we hear, Davis needs to have a very strong camp just to be ensured a spot on the team's game-day roster. His inability to play special teams led him to being active just once in '09, and he also never has been able to stay healthy as a pro. Even with Vincent Jackson looking like a holdout, Davis probably will struggle to get on the field, especially after the Bolts signed veteran free agent Josh Reed to man the slot.
