Why Marcus Davenport makes sense for Packers

Why Marcus Davenport makes sense for Packers

The mock drafts that have the Green Bay Packers picking Marcus Davenport at No. 14 overall just might be on to something.

Theres no knowing how the draft will fall, but the mesh of need, talent and availability make Davenport as good a projection as anybody for the Packers first-round pick.

Hes going to be a good player, said a front-office executive for an NFC team. To me, hes got the highest probability (of the top defensive prospects) of being there at 14. Theres no corner worth taking at 14.

Id argue that pass rusher is the Packers greatest need, ahead of cornerback, and probably has been for at least two years. The only chance defenses have of slowing down the top quarterbacks in the NFL is pressuring them. If they cant sack them, they at least have to make quarterbacks uncomfortable in the pocket down after down and force them to get the ball out fast.
