Marlon Davidson is an American football defensive end who currently plays for the Atlanta Falcons of the National Football League. Davidson was born on May 11, 1998.
He attended Auburn University for his college football career. Outside of high school, Davidson was a highly recruited player due to his status as a five-star prospect.
Davidson made the decision to sign with Auburn because his brother, Kenneth Carter, had a successful football career there and is now an assistant coach for the Tigers.
Davidson made an immediate contribution to the Tigers, becoming the first freshman at Auburn to start on the defensive line since 1985. He also started all 13 games in which the Tigers participated.
In addition to that, he was selected to the All-SEC freshman team. After a match against Missouri in Davidson’s sophomore season, the SEC defensive player of the week award was bestowed upon him for the week in question.
Davidson was chosen by the Atlanta Falcons in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft. The Falcons used the 47th overall pick to make the selection.
On October 13, 2020, he was inactivated after being placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list. He was brought back into service on October 26.
On December 5, 2021, he recorded the first interception of his professional career, which resulted in a pick-6 against Tom Brady.
After undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery on August 31, 2022, Davidson was placed on injured reserve the following day, September 1.
