Saints trade up to bolster edge pass rush with Davenport

METAIRIE, La. (AP) The New Orleans Saints made a trade with Green Bay to move up from 27th overall to 14th in the first round of the NFL draft and selected Texas-San Antonio defensive end Marcus Davenport.

The selection of the 6-foot-7, 295-pound Davenport on Thursday night fills what coach Sean Payton termed an offseason "must," improving the pass rush. Davenport was the Conference USA Defensive Player of the Year for UTSA last season after making 8 + sacks and 17 + tackles for loss. He also was credited with eight quarterback hurries.

To get Davenport, the Saints gave the Packers not only this year's first-rounder, but also next year's first-round pick, along with a fifth-round selection to made on Saturday.
