Five Bengals Set to See More Snaps in 2019
5 of 5
Clayton Fejedelem (167 snaps, 14.79% of defensive snaps)
Fejedelem is a talented player who struggles for playing time behind starting safeties Jessie Bates and reliable veteran Shawn Williams.
We still don’t know exactly how new defensive coordinator Lou Amaruno’s scheme will look, but we do know how much he enjoyed playing Landon Collins in the box. Fejedelem is a willing tackler who is equally comfortable covering tight ends, and even covers the slot.
With the Bengals lacking athletic linebackers, as discussed above. The former seventh rounder could provide a solution if Amaruno decides to use some three safety looks.
If the Bengals want to get more athletic on defense, which is a must, extra snaps to Fejedelem could help significantly.
