2018 Fantasy Outlook
In the most stunning move of the 2018 NFL Draft, the Saints traded away a king's ransom to move up from pick No. 27 to No. 14 in order to draft Davenport out of tiny University of Texas-San Antonio. The 6-6, 265-pound defensive end has freakish speed for his size - he ran a blazing 4.58-second 40-yard dash at the scouting combine - but even according to coach Sean Payton, Davenport may be a raw developmental project given the low level of his Conference USA competition. Moreover, the Saints re-signed Alex Okafor this offseason to complement All-Pro Cameron Jordan. Prior to tearing his Achilles last November, Okafor had been very good in his first season in New Orleans. Davenport has the prototypical size and athleticism to eventually be a major contributor, but given his lack of high-level experience and possible backup role, it's fair to wonder whether Davenport will be able to make an immediate impact as a rookie.

Davenport revealed Tuesday that he underwent surgery on his foot shortly after the Saints were eliminated from the postseason, Mike Triplett of ESPN.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Davenport didn't provide details about the type of procedure nor a timeline, but he indicated he played through an injury that would normally be season-ending. He missed three weeks in November while nursing a toe issue, ultimately finishing his rookie campaign with 21 tackles, 4.5 sacks and a forced fumble in 13 regular-season games (416 defensive snaps). With fellow defensive end Alex Okafor scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent, the Saints likely intend for Davenport to seize a starting job ahead of his sophomore campaign. The team traded its 2019 first-round pick to move up to No. 14 overall last year to select the Texas-San Antonio product.
