Natural pass rusher with prototypical frame and elite athleticism. Great length. Has the power to dominate on the edge. Very smooth in space. Impressive bend for his size. Aggressive tackler that attacks the ball to force fumbles. Gets off blocks with strength and athletic ability. Can get skinny and use his quickness to get through double teams. Shows good effort and strong pursuit as a backside defender. Should be able to add bulk to his frame without losing speed. Can be molded to play in any scheme.
Still a raw edge defender. Overall technique needs improvement. Hands and feet aren’t in synch. Will have to play lower against NFL talent. Doesn’t seem to have a real plan to get after the quarterback. Slow to diagnose at times. Lack of experience is apparent.
Ezekiel Ansah – Calais Campbell – Danielle Hunter
While I don’t view Marcus Davenport as a top-15 prospect like a lot of draft analysts do, he definitely has all the tools to become a dominant edge player at the next level with some time to unlock his potential. Davenport’s potential could make him a first-round pick, but I’d be more comfortable taking him in the second.
