Again, the run game will be crucial towards keeping defenses honest. When the Bengals attempt a two-point conversion, they’ll lean on their power running game.
Ryan Hewitt proved himself to be amongst the best lead blockers in the NFL. Hewitt open numerous holes for Hill this past season. These holes often sprung Hill for huge gains, such as the 60-yard run against the Jaguars. The best thing about Hewitt is he can catch the ball and produce as a receiver along with acting as a great lead blocker. Hewitt has soft hands and the adequate awareness to produce in the short game. His ability to block keeps defenders honest, which gives him an advantage when initially breaking into his routes.
Cincinnati’s staff has lauded Hewitt over the offseason. They believe him to be the NFL’s best fullback after just his rookie season. His ability to act as a dual-threat player will offer defenders no respite. As the Bengals primary blocker for Jeremy Hill, Ryan Hewitt will need to have a big year in 2015, and this includes catalyzing the offense when trying to add that eighth point.
