Vernon Davis          

San Francisco 49ers tight end

Vernon Davis is a tight end for the San Francisco 49ers of the NFL. He was drafted in the 1st round (6th overall) of the 2006 NFL Draft by the 49ers. He joined Kellen Winslow Jr. as the fourth highest tight end ever drafted after Ron Kramer (Green Bay, No. 4 in 1957), Mike Ditka (Chicago, No. 5 in 1961) and Riley Odoms (Denver, No. 5 in 1972).

After three seasons, Davis broke out in 2009, co-leading the NFL in touchdown receptions. In the 2011 playoffs, Davis caught the game winning touchdown pass from Alex Smith against the New Orleans Saints, now referred to as "The Grab," or "The Catch III," in regards to "The Catch" by Dwight Clark in 1982 and "The Catch II" by Terrell Owens in 1999.

Davis played in the Super Bowl XLVII championship game with the 49ers against the Baltimore Ravens.
