Drew's Dougherty Dozen: 12Q w/LT Julién Davenport

Here are a few football questions, a few camp questions, and a few life questions for left tackleJulién Davenport. You can listen to the full interview **HERE**.

DD: What's your one, "must-pack" item for training camp?

Davenport:  Definitely underwear. But then, hygiene products as well. Deodorant. Toothpaste. Toothbrush.

DD: What's your best football trait?

Davenport: My long arms.

DD: What's your most-improved football trait this offseason?

Davenport: Knowledge of the offense. Knowledge of the playbook.

DD: Which teammate gets you most pumped up?

Davenport: Mister Mancz. (Offensive lineman) Greg Mancz gets me amped up. Actually, it might be a tie between him and Chad Slade. Greg's always yelling. Always screaming. Always amped up. You can always count on him with the juice.

DD: Which teammate calms you down the most?

Davenport: It has to be another tie between Kyle Fuller and Kendall Lamm. They're more like me, I would say.

DD: What do you eat for breakfast at camp?

Davenport: A little bit of scrambled eggs. Three pieces of bacon, and some fruit. Watermelon, pineapple and blueberries.

DD: What's the best part of camp?

Davenport: Practicing, of course. I love being out here, hitting the pads. Especially when we have full pads.

DD: Who has the best hair on the team?

Davenport: I'll give it to B-Mac (ILB Benardrick McKinney). I'll put myself up there.

DD: Who's the best dresser on the Texans?

Davenport: K-Jack (CB Kareem Jackson.) K-Jack had some pretty nice suits last year. He dressed pretty well. But hey: don't slack on the o-linemen. The o-linemen have swag as well.

DD: Who's your favorite retired NFL player?

Davenport: I was a Steelers fan growing up, so I have to go with Troy Polamalu. That was my team. He was a stable player on that team and I was just always behind him. It seemed like every time I watched him he was always making plays on the TV screen.

DD: What's the toughest part of training camp?

Davenport: Just being zoned in all the time. We're here all day, through practice and meetings. You have to make sure you're always at attention, every minute of the day until the day's over with.

DD: Do you send postcards from camp, and if you do, who gets them?

Davenport: Definitely my mom, my dad, the fam. Let them know everything's going good, even though we got cell phones. My girlfriend as well.
