Summary

The Saints have high hopes for second-year pro Marcus Davenport, who they traded up for in the 2018 NFL Draft, surrendering their 2019 first round pick in the process. Davenport was slowed by a toe injury in his rookie year but produced 4.5 sacks and flashed at times. Head coach Sean Payton said the expectation is for Davenport to be a 'dominant player' for the team. On a defensive front featuring Cameron Jordan, Malcom Brown and Sheldon Rankins, Davenport is likely to face favourable matchups and a lot of one-on-one pass rushing opportunities. He is a breakout candidate and could reach DL2 numbers at his ceiling. (May 12)
