Davenport, 6-foot-2, 248 pounds, has had knee and foot injuries during his career for the Hurricanes. But the Packers feel that he is versatile enough to play running back or fullback.
"He's a ‘one back' and a fullback," said Mark Hatley, the Packers' vice president of football operations. "In a ‘one back' set we feel that he gives us some flexibility as a tailback, too."
Davenport was more of an inside runner for the Hurricans. He has size, power and speed.
"He's got a chance to develope into something," said Hatley. "He does have a foot injury that we're concerned with. That's one of the reasons he has slipped (in the draft). Our doctors feel that the worst-case scenario is we'll have to do something right now. We're excited about getting this quality of a player in the fourth round, especially at the bottom."
Henderson was drafted by the Packers in 1995. He has started at fullback since the 1996 season.
