Marcus Davenport

Similar to Clelin Ferrell, Marcus Davenport was a player who surprisingly was selected in the first round but he was drafted in 2018 by the New Orleans Saints with the 14th overall pick. He was definitely more productive early in his career than Ferrell as he had 21 sacks over his first four seasons.

However, the past two seasons have not been nearly as productive as he had only 0.5 sacks in his final season with the Saints. He was a free agent last offseason and signed a one-year contract with the Vikings but only played in four games due to injuries and had two sacks.

Davenport likely will be looking once again for a one-year prove-it type deal and the Buffalo Bills could be the right spot to give him that chance to turn his career around. He is a big defensive end with a similar frame of Rousseau as they both are 6'6" and around 265 pounds. This will create a lot of problems for opposing offensive tackles off the edge.
