Cincinnati Bengals: Post NFL Draft 53 Man Roster Prediction
6 of 9
Defensive Line (9)
Defensive Ends: Carlos Dunlap, Sam Hubbard, Carl Lawson, Jordan Willis & Kerry Wynn
Defensive Tackles: Geno Atkins, Renell Wren, Andrew Billings & Ryan Glasgow
A big reason why the Bengals defense finished worst in the NFL a year ago was struggles up front.
The Bengals finished 28th in the NFL in sacks and 29th in rush defense. Despite this, the depth at both defensive end and tackle are set to have a very similar look in 2019.
Cornerstone pass rushers Carlos Dunlap and Geno Atkins will return, but both are on the wrong side of 30.
The only true additions to the Bengals defensive line are fourth round selection Renell Wren from Arizona State and free agent signing Kerry Wynn who made 39 total tackles for the New York Giants last season.
