Brian Baldinger sees plenty to like in Marcus Davenport

Maybe the first round pick isn’t as raw as we’ve been led to believe.

By John Sigler May 15, 2018, 10:45am CDT



NFL Network analyst Brian Baldinger, also called Baldy, has quickly earned a spot among New Orleans Saints fans’ favorites. Baldy is known for his enthusiastic film studies, highlighting clips of players doing things really well - and praising them for it - as often as picking out things going horribly wrong and burying them for it. He’s done a lot to bridge the gap between fan-friendly content and the hyped-up coach speak you’ll hear on NFL sidelines.

While that trademarked style has gotten him love from all around the NFL, Baldy’s relationship with Saints fans may be his strongest. He was the conductor of Marshon Lattimore’s Defensive Rookie of the Year hype train, and has become a big fan of other Saints like Alvin Kamara, Terron Armstead, Larry Warford, and Cam Jordan. He even chimed in with support for the New Orleans Pelicans during their recent go-for-broke playoff series.

Lately, Baldy has turned his attentions towards the top 2018 NFL Draft prospects. One name he’s latched onto with intensity is Marcus Davenport. So far, it seems like Baldy has found plenty to like in Davenport and the trade the Saints made to go get him.


Baldy just might get it. He highlights the need for a real presence opposite Jordan on the defensive line in this clip, showing how the Minnesota Vikings double-teamed Jordan on penultimate plays in their Divisional Round playoff game without fearing a breakdown in protection elsewhere. All Davenport has to do as a rookie is beat the man in front of him:

Great read and watch. Baldy loves him some Marcus Davenport. Compares him to Jadeveon Clowney.

Not sure if you checked out any of Baldy's tweets or post game film breakdowns of Lattimore last season but he has good perspective/evaluation and insight.

Now Brian is seeing traits of Clowney with Davenport? That's super encouraging to hear on our 1st rounder.

Yes I did. And I see the same excitement from Baldy as with Lattimore last year.

I think I'll call Davenport the missing link. He was definitely the chess piece DA needed to apply pressure.

Re: Brian Baldinger sees plenty to like in Marcus Davenport

Is this guy a can't miss prospect? He seems pretty close to that? Obviously he is very athletic, but he is also a violent player who hustles on every play. If we just penciled in another pro bowl level DE, pass rusher, run stuffing, every down guy to play with Cam Jordan-Who Dat!.
