FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) - Once again, Dominique Davis is the new quarterback in camp, marveling at the work of established starter Matt Ryan. And Ryan is also impressed with the play of Davis.

Davis joined the Atlanta Falcons as an undrafted rookie free agent from East Carolina. He began his college career at Boston College, where he was redshirted in Ryan's 2007 senior season.

The Falcons opened training camp with Davis the fourth-string quarterback behind Ryan, Chris Redman and John Parker Wilson. Davis may be pushing up one or two spots on the depth chart.

Davis has surprised some with his strong arm. Ryan says he is not surprised because he remembers the young Davis at Boston College.

Coach Mike Smith on Monday said Davis probably is the most improved player in camp.
