I notice that too. Even before the draft watching some of his interviews, he was the same way.His demeanor seems to be very different from Davenport, pleasant, upbeat and that's great, maybe half the battle there. Now if he can spread it over to Davenport. Then bring that fire on gameday, I'm all for this dude.
I’d wager Dav turns it up this season barring injuries and Turner on the Onyemata production timeline with similar impact. He may actually come along faster with DE requiring less experience to be productive than DT.Davenport is a monster, freak of an athlete. To be so physically and athletically similar is not a bad thing. The problem is, Davenport has been slower to develop, partly due to staying nicked up here and there. If this guy can develop a little quicker, that would be awesome. The door is still not closed on Davenport. I imagine a world where both of these guys live up to their full potential, and become an absolute nightmare for QBs. Here's to hoping. I at least hope one of them turns into a nightmare for QBs.
Davenport had 1.5 sacks and 12 total tackles last year.
Picking up his 5th year option is strictly a function of giving up 2 first rounders to get him, not his performance to date.
