6'5 makes me feel better should he make the transition to LB.

I'm itching to see his dash/cone. If he can go sub 7 in the cone I'll probably jizz in my pants.

I still like Edmunds/Landry as a pure 3-4 OLB. Davenport is certainly intriguing given the Bears spend so much time in sub packages.

I like what they can offer in terms of pass rush and coverage, but I worry having two dudes that barely touch 250 lbs on the edge at the same time. I'd like at least one with some thump to them (McPhee, Ware, etc).

UTSA DE Marcus Davenport (6-foot-6, 259 pounds) has already shown flashes of his power at the Senior Bowl workouts, both during individual drills and one-on-one pass rush. Davenport's technique is still raw on film, but he has natural strength at the point of attack and he comes off the ball with speed.

Back in 2005, I watched this kid from Troy play defensive end and I was fascinated by him," Mayock said of Ware. "When we got to the Senior Bowl I followed this kid to every drill. I came away going 'wow.' I get the same tingle watching (Davenport's) tape."

Mayock said Ware was a "natural edge rusher, a kid with toughness and physicality in the run game. He ended up going No. 11 to the Dallas Cowboys."

Davenport, Mayock said, could go that high in the draft that is scheduled to be held, ironically, April 26-28 at the home of the Cowboys, AT&T Stadium in Arlington.

"He's got natural edge skill. He's got physicality, toughness and a great motor," Mayock said of Davenport. "If things turnout the way I think they will, top 11 is not out of the question for Marcus Davenport."

of all the folks out there with opinions on these guys, I trust Mayock the most ... so if he thinks Davenport is all that, I have no problem accepting that as information to utilize

Kid is raw so if we draft him Fangio and Friends will have their work cut out for them.

Thursday's practice was the coming out party for UTSA DE Marcus Davenport. The South team couldn't block him. I thought he was thinking a little bit too much and struggling to get off the ball earlier in the week, but he got after it on Thursday. He was all over the place. He's not a finished product yet, but he finally showed what he's capable of, which was good to see. — Daniel Jeremiah
