He had no moves, average power, no speed.

And if anybody tries to make the "durability" argument I'm going to laugh hysterically. Davis lasted just 4 years.

Davis wasn't even the best back in Super Bowl XXXIII (Jamal Anderson).
Well if it's that easy (running through gapping holes, cutting back to daylight, not needing any speed, power or moves) then you should try out for the Redskins. Make yourself famous.

Davis didn't fall in the draft because wasn't talented. Reason 1) injuries. 2) his head coach denied scouts and GMs his game film.

Bottom line is this... No RB has ever done what Davis did in Shanahan's system. He's never had a RB carry his team to a Super Bowl in back-to-back seasons. Davis carried the Broncos to 2 Super Bowl wins.

And the Jamal Anderson comment? Really? You talk about draft picks like they have any relevance. And then you mention a 7th round pick who disappeared as fast as he blew up. He did next to nothing in any season outside of the 1998 season. He only played in three post season games where ran over 100 yards in just one of them. Davis went over 100 yards in 5 of the last 6 postseason games he played in. He went over 90 yards in all of them. It's also interesting that you say Anderson was better when Davis went over 2,000 yards the season they faced off in the Super Bowl. And Davis also had 23 total TDs that year. A tad bit more than Anderson's 16.

Should we even get into speed and elusiveness? Anderson certainly was an amazing athlete. Everything about him was superior to Davis now that you mention it. Alright, hes a Hall of Famer.
