Sounds like he is parroting exactly what Cam Jordon says all the time. Looks like he is really taking it all in from his mentor.
I had my doubts, and still do but there is no doubt he is getting better.

With all the pressure(s) that Davenport has been getting, I'd be curious to see what would happen if Davenport switch with Jordan and opposing quarterbacks saw that pressure in their face vs their blind-side...

I think that will be the next step as he progresses. Them being able to flip sides between play, all of a sudden lining up at 3-tech and so on. OL and QB never being able to really keep track of 'em.

It’s wild how much they have Davenport doing. I’ve noticed a few plays where he’s lined up at Mike LB. He really is a very smart player.

I've noticed a few times when he's gotten really close, because hes so tall he sometimes over reaches for the QB and ends up missing them completely.

If he could lower his pad level just a little, he would start getting more sacks.

I get moving a pass rusher around - coaches recognize mental fatigue as well as physical on a pass rusher, giving a pass rusher different looks, keeps him fresh...

Plus, it also put's pressure on the offensive linemen, who can't get set into a routine vs a familiar opponent, now they've got to make adjustments and lends to creating confusion for them as well...

Sounds like he could be worth "two firsts and a fifth", huh?

Nobody will ever admit that.
