Defensive end Marlon Davidson is projected to be selected in the first couple rounds of the 2020 draft. Coming out of high school in the class of 2016, Davidson was a four-star recruit, and the third-ranked recruit in Alabama.

College Career: Davidson played all four years with the Auburn Tigers, even though he could have left after his junior season. As a freshman and sophomore he stood out, but it was his Junior year where he really wowed everyone. During the 2019 season, he started all 13 games racking up 46 tackles and 3.5 sacks. As a senior, he wrecked most offensive lines with Derrick Brown. He led the team with 12.5 tackles for a loss and greatly improved his draft stock.

Pros: Davidson is quick out of his stance, and that first step is a real problem for defenses. He does a good job of keeping his pads low. He is always playing at a high level and his motor doesn’t stop until the whistle blows. Davidson is also good at mixing up his moves and ways he tries to get through the line to keep the offense off guard.If tight ends are matched up against him in the run game, they need to double him or he will be tackling the ball carrier in a hurry.

Cons: He didn’t actually line up as a defensive end at Auburn, so there are some questions about how he will adjust to that at the NFL level. His arms are a little shorter and that could be a downfall in his game. He also struggles to keep his eyes up when he is engaged in blocks. His football IQ sometimes is lacking with recognizing what blocks are going to be coming his way. 

Projected Teams: The Green Bay Packers are a team that needs help on the defensive line, and bringing in Davidson could do that. He should be able to come in right away and be an impact player. The Packers Super Bowl window might be closing, so they need to bring in someone who can contribute right away.
