3 Under-the-Radar Breakout Candidates for the Cincinnati Bengals
Andrew Brown will be entering his third year with the Bengals next season and it appears to be the perfect time for him to break out.
Brown has all the potential in the world. Upon entering the college ranks he was a 5-star recruit and the number one defensive tackle in the nation. It’s no small accomplishment earning those kinds of accolades.
Much like the previously mentioned Anderson, Brown showed flashes during the pre-season that explained why he was such a highly sought after recruit.
Unfortunately, the Virginia native was knocked for his lack of technique and some bad games he put on tape entering the draft. However, after two full seasons with NFL coaching, Brown has shown improvement and looks like he could put it all together in 2020.
The Bengals already have tremendous edge rushers in Carl Lawson, Carlos Dunlap, and Sam Hubbard. Regardless, defensive coordinator Lou Anarumo can always use more weapons at his disposal. If Brown can prove he can capitalize on his natural talent and remain sound in his technique, he can help the Bengals get more sacks after they finished 24th in the league a season ago.
