08:58 AM ET 09.09 | A lot of NFL front office men are buzzing about Dominique Davis. The quarterback from East Carolina went undrafted and had only one team interested in giving him a look-see. He signed with the Falcons and has been outstanding. Davis' tools are excellent, but he still is unrefined. The thinking in Atlanta is he can develop as a No. 2 quarterback and maybe more. Interesting coincidence: Davis was a transfer from Boston College. As a freshman there, he worked with upperclassman Matt Ryan.

Who exactly are "A lot of NFL execs"

Ah, how intriguing. A story about an drafted QB who might, maybe someday, turn into a serviceable backup. I'm blown away.

Talk him up this year. Play him a lot in pre-season next year. Then trade him to Arizona. It's been done before.

I thought the Cards like old done-for QBs. They don't have patience for a fresh scrubbed newbie.

Back-up QB: Everyone loves them until they have to play. Cash the paycheck, hold the clipboard, and pray Ryan stays healthy.

I'm sure all those that were unaware of that fact(3rd graders and below) appreciate that tidbit of education.

I don't think they hold clipboards any more. The rest of your statement is right on.
