The selections of OLB Thomas Davis, RB Eric Shelton and DT Atiyyah Ellison could mark the beginning of a subtle overhaul. The team said it will wait to decide where to play Davis, a safety in college, but it's most likely he'll move to linebacker. That could be a sign SLB Mark Fields won't be back. Davis' experience in coverage makes him a good candidate for the strong side, and his athleticism and speed likely will allow him to move to the top of the depth chart. The addition of Shelton makes it clear the team isn't sure how well RB Stephen Davis will recover from knee surgery. The plan is to use Shelton behind DeShaun Foster, but Shelton, a power runner, is likely to get plenty of carries because Foster is a speed back and the team doesn't want to overwork him. Ellison is a bit of a project. The plan is to have him ready to start in 2006, in case DT Brentson Buckner retires. The team used three picks to add depth to the middle of the offensive line. Evan Mathis, the top pick of the three, can play both guard and center.
