Fresh of of an All-Pro 2012 campaign in which he established himself one of, if not, the best defensive tackle in the NFL, Geno Atkins  now soaking in the beautiful Honolulu sun at the annual NFL Pro Bowl. He’s not the first Bengals defensive tackle though to play at an exceptional level, as Geoff Hobson caught up with former great Tim Krumrie in Mobile, Alabama during Senior Bowl, and got these comments from from Krumrie about Atkins:

Outstanding, outstanding player. I love his motor. I love his power. I’ve watched quite a few games. He’s enjoyable to watch. I like him a lot. He’s got leverage. He hits the quarterback when he’s supposed to get to the quarterback. For a young interior lineman his production has really been terrific. He’s doing a heck of a job.

 

This season, Atkins became the first Bengals defensive lineman to go to two Pro Bowls Krumrie, who is looking to get back into the NFL after coaching in the UFL this past year. Maybe the Bengals could find a way to bring him back on staff.
