Injury History

Team Fit

He is a long and strong defensive end that would help anchor a side of a defensive line. He has a great burst, that he uses to his advantage to get a push on the lineman. He also has a variety of moves to get around tackles for the sack. He loves to hit, wraps up, and wants to run through runner/quarterback.

Weaknessess

He can be on and off at times. He needs to find more consistency. Plays with a high shoulder pad level, this allows running backs to stand him up or lineman to pancake him. He is more built for a 4–3 defense. Might be scheme dependent.

Big Picture

Davenport has the ability to come in and develop into one of the best defensive ends in the league. He just looks like NFL player, the problem is there are times he looks like an average player. He will need to develop as a player. He has shown he has the ability to progress, he got better since his Freshman year, and also showed development throughout his week at the Senior Bowl. He can come in as a rookie and contribute to a defense. He has enough strength and pass rush moves to make an impact versus the pass and run. I do believe he is more of a fit for a 4–3 defense even though he stood up during his time in college. He may need to adjust with his hand on the ground. I think he has late 1st round talent, could possibly get him early in the 2nd.
