In 2013 Marcus Davenport was in his senior season at John Paul Stevens high school in San Antonio as a two star rated defensive end with only two real college options, UNLV and UTSA. He was barely a blip on the college recruiting radar.
What happened from his high school playing days to this years NFL draft is nothing short of miraculous. If you’re like us, these are the Cinderella stories you just love to hear. From a two star rated athlete in high school, to C- USA defensive player of the year….
Davenport dominated last year on defense.

To the 14th pick of the first round of the 2018 NFL draft
When Davenports name was called UTSA fans erupted!
New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton answers questions from local media about the move to trade up to pick number 14 and select edge rusher Marcus Davenport in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft.
We are a little biased here when it comes to our Texas players, but we agree with The Ringer and give this pick an A+ for the saints. Davenport will fit perfectly into their system lining up opposite Saints star Cam Jordan.
Our prediction, Davenport continues to grow and stun the naysayers by becoming an pro-bowl caliber player within the next 2-3 years. Think about it folks. Look how far he has come! The Marcus Davenport story is just beginning.
Congratulations to Marcus Davenport, his family, teammates and coaches.
