Carlos Dunlap, Cincinnati Bengals
If Carlos Dunlap is getting older, please don’t tell him because every year it feels like he has the same, great season.
At his best, Dunlap has had 13.5 sacks (2015) and at his worst he has had 4.5 sacks (2011), but if you take out those seasons look at how consistent he has been:
2010: 9.5 sacks
That is incredible and through 10 years of play he stands at 81.5 sacks. I have no idea why the Bengals would trade him, but if they really are considering a trade like Spotrac suggests then the Titans should jump on it.
What he does best:
It is a pleasure to watch Carlos Dunlap because there is really nothing he struggles at doing. Maybe you could say that you want him to be a little bit more rangy on the outside, but what can you expect for an EDGE who weighs 280 lb?
He has pop in his hands if he wants to use that, he can beat tackles off the line with speed, and his football IQ is off the charts so he seems to know the plays as well as the offense at times.
Final thoughts on his chances with the Titans: The Tennessee Titans need someone exactly like Carlos Dunlap, the only question is whether or not the Bengals would be willing to trade him. In fact, while I really like the idea of adding Jadeveon Clowney, I am not sure that Dunlap wouldn’t help the Titans more in 2020.
