Illinois CB Davis taken by Dolphins with 25th pick
DAVIE, Fla. (AP) - Illinois cornerback Vontae Davis was taken by the Miami Dolphins with the 25th pick in the NFL draft Saturday.


The Dolphins hope Davis will upgrade a secondary that ranked 25th in the NFL against the pass last year and lost starting cornerback Andre Goodman in free agency. Miami used its top pick on a cornerback for the first time since selecting draft bust Jamar Fletcher in 2001.

Davis started 34 games for the Fighting Illini. He had a hand in 12 takeaways in his career and made 13.5 tackles behind the line of scrimmage.

Davis' brother, tight end Vernon Davis, was taken with the sixth overall pick in 2006 by San Francisco.
