Here are five things you need to know about Julién Davenport, the Texans 2017 fourth-round draft pick:

1. Say my name
Julién is pronounced “Julie-OWN,” not “Julie-EN.” And no apostrophe, it’s an accent mark over the “e.”


2. Perfect Attendance
Davenport, a two-year team captain and five-time All-American, never missed a game at Bucknell. He started all 44 games at left tackle from 2013-2016 for the Bison.

3. Hoop Dreams
A native of Paulsboro, New Jersey, Davenport was a team captain and all-conference selection in both football and basketball in high school.

4. Runs in the family
His cousin, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, currently plays in the NBA. Kidd-Gilchrist was a member of Kentucky’s 2012 NCAA Champion men’s basketball team.

5. Setting records
Davenport had a record-setting year. He had the longest wingspan at the NFL Combine (87.5 inches). Last week, he became the first Bison drafted in 48 years and seventh in school history. Quarterback Sam Havrilak was the last Bucknell player drafted, an eighth-round pick in 1969.
