Vernon Davis, who ranked ninth in receptions (52) at his position last season, had no qualms comparing himself to the best tight ends in the NFL. "I'm going to be No. 1," he said. "That's my goal, nothing less. With this offense, I believe I can do it." Comparing himself to Tony Gonzalez, Jason Witten and other top NFL tight ends, Davis won't back off. "They're OK," Davis said. "They're all right. I believe I'm up there too at their level, maybe even better. I'm saying I'm going to have a great season. An awesome one." Under the system of new 49ers offensive coordinator Mike Martz, coach Mike Nolan expects a big season from his tight end. -- SF Chronicle
