53. Cincinnati Bengals: Paul Dawson, LB (TCU)
Dawson is a fast linebacker, in fact he has sideline to sideline speed. Dawson is a great blitzer and the prototypical Mike backer in a 4-3 defense. This is a perfect fit for Marvin Lewis‘s Bengals.
Dawson is a young linebacker that will add explosive wow plays from the linebacker position. In a brutally tough AFC North division, the Bengals need physical and aggressive defenders. Dawson is just that.
The Bengals drafted T.J. Clemmings in the 1st Round, and got Dawson in the 2nd Round. The Bengals are determined to get back to the playoffs. That is why this draft is so critical for them.
