DE Sam Hubbard - Cincinnati Bengals
|6-5, 265||Born: ||College: Ohio State||Drafted: Round 3, pick 0 |
Hubbard was the Bengals third round pick this year. The former Buckeye has a scouting report that reads much like that of a young Michael Johnson. Marvin Lewis likes his defensive ends tall; at 6'5" Hubbard fits the bill. The strength of his game is setting the edge versus the run. He is not a premier pass rusher but will contribute in that area as well. Hubbard recorded 7 sacks as a junior for Ohio State last fall, with a career total of 17. He could be groomed as a possible heir to Johnson but for now Hubbard will compete for backup snaps with last year's third round selection Jordan Willis.
