Carlos Dunlap has been a low-key star for the Cincinnati Bengals since he entered the league in 2010. His best season came in 2015, as he got to the quarterback 13.5 times en route to his first Pro Bowl. In 2016, Dunlap finished the season with 15 pass deflections, good for 8th in the NFL, and the most of any non-defensive back.
A consistent force off the edge, Dunlap has achieved success as a sack artist, totaling 57 sacks, 15 forced fumbles, and 8 fumble recoveries over his 7 year career. Even if Dunlap can’t get back to the sack numbers he reached in 2015, don’t be surprised if he’s back in the 8-10 sack area again this year.
Awards and Accolades:
