Overall

Davenport has the skill set and talent to be a consistently good pass rusher at the NFL level. His long arms and rare combination of speed and power really help him beat tackles and get to the quarterback. Davenport needs to work on getting off blocks and could add to his pass rush repertoire. He is looking like a 2nd round pick with upside.
