With the 47th pick, Atlanta selects a defensive lineman I thought was supremely underrated coming into this draft.
Being paired next to Derrick Brown, Davidson was understandably overlooked. Now he’ll be playing with another star — Grady Jarrett. Harrison had some good things to say about the Auburn product in his draft profile:
“Going back to school proved to be a wise choice for Davidson, as he had by far his best collegiate season in 2019. He posted career highs of 48 tackles, 11.5 tackles for loss, and 6.5 sacks and was a big part in Auburn having one of, if not the best defensive fronts in the nation. Along with his 6.5 sacks, he was constantly pushing the pocket and racking up QB pressures.”
We’ll see if Davidson moves inside full time or if he slides out on some occasions to rush the passer.
