The early part of the San Antonio Brahmas’ first season in the UFL has had mixed results. On the field, the Brahmas have started the season with a 2-1 record and have been one of the most talked-about teams in the league. At the same time that they are succeeding on the field, they are facing a plethora of challenges with injuries to their roster.

As players move from the Brahmas active roster to the injured reserve list, the results are holes in the Brahmas roster and depth chart, especially at quarterback and offensive line recently. So, while the Brahmas are preparing to face the Michigan Panthers on Saturday night, they are also working hard to fill the holes in their roster with high-quality solutions to the problems created by injuries. One of those holes was at the quarterback position, and they filled that hole by signing former NFL quarterback Kevin Hogan. Still, they are also dealing with several injury issues on their offensive line, which has led them to add offensive lineman Julie’n Davenport, according to a recent UFL press release.

The Brahmas signed Davenport to fill a roster spot at offensive tackle from when the Brahmas added Greg Eiland to the injured reserve list. Eiland was the latest in a series of offensive line additions to the injured list, including starting center Alex Mollette last week. Since Davenport is being added late in the week, he will need some time to grow into a role on the Brahmas offensive line.

Davenport is a 6’7″, 315-pound offensive tackle from Paulsboro, New Jersey. The New Jersey native played college football at NCAA FCS Bucknell University from 2013 until 2016. The Houston Texans selected Davenport in the 4th round of the 2017 NFL Draft.

After being drafted by the Texans, Davenport spent the 2017 and 2018 NFL seasons in Houston. In 2019, he signed with the Miami Dolphins and stayed with the Dolphins for two seasons. Davenport signed with the Indianapolis Colts in 2021. After leaving the Colts, Davenport spent time on the practice squads for the Chicago Bears (2022), Arizona Cardinals (2022, 2023), and the New York Giants (2023).

Davenport has played in 60 games during his NFL career, starting 32 of them. The scouting report on Davenport indicates that he is a solid run blocker but has footwork issues when it comes to pass blocking at the NFL level. It will be interesting to see what role Davenport may play for the Brahmas since they are missing several players on their offensive line due to being on injured reserve.
