Cleveland Browns 2019 NFL Draft Prospects: Defensive Tackles
Michael Dogbe, Temple
I’m almost convinced Michael Dogbe wears No. 9 for Temple because that’s probably his body fat percentage. This young man looks as if he was made from 280-pounds of pure steel.
Michael Dogbe is another personal favorite of mine. He’s one of those hidden draft gems I found when I first saw him play against Maryland. They had no answer for this man (3.5 tackles for loss, 2.5 sacks). He was lining up both as an inside tackle and even as a defensive end where he provided a solid edge rush. Either way, he has played with serious speed and power we don’t normally see from his position.
The big knock that will affect him at first is his school, but if scouts and teams look hard enough like they did for Kahlil Mack and fellow former Temple Owl, Haason Reddick, he will shoot up draft boards.
His 2018 numbers are solid (12.5 tackles for loss, seven sacks, and three forced fumbles), he’s got good size (6-foot-3 280 lbs) and he’s got the skills and flexibility to play anywhere along the defensive line. All eyes should be on this man.
Dogbe would give the Browns a menacing pass rush sliding into a line that consists of Ogunjobi, Ogbah, and of course, Myles Garrett.
