Plenty is expected from Davidson as a rookie. Along with top free agent acquisition Dante Fowler, Davidson is a player the Falcons need to produce all along the defensive front.

“I think what (Davidson’s highlights) showed was here was a big guy and if the weight is right he can really move,” HC Dan Quinn said. “So, for him, the most effective for us was seeing him at 295 pounds. You saw him at defensive end so many times, so he’ll play some defensive end but we’ll also slide him into defensive tackle where he can use that quickness and use that speed to beat somebody to the punch. I’ve been real impressed so far with his discipline. Weight is exactly where it should be, and so when you send messages like that as a rookie to say, ‘Hey man, this is where you want me to be. This is where I’m at.’ You do what you say you’re going to do. That’s certainly been the case so far with Marlon with us here.”
