Carl Lawson in Cincinnati Bengals Training Camp

By on August 10th, 2017 in Football, Member Post 3 Comments »

Here is part of an article by Jay Morrison of the Dayton Daily News talking about six things to watch in the  Bengals preseason opener.

Lawson’s leverage

Mixon may lead the team in oohs, aahs and cheers from the fans thus far in camp, but there’s another rookie giving him a run for the label of “most impressive.”

The biggest question surrounding fourth-round pick Carl Lawson is whether he’s actually that good or the offensive line is that bad. The fourth-round pick has been beating whichever tackle he goes against when he lines up at defensive end, and he’s coming along when it comes to playing as a standup linebacker, the position the Bengals are listing him at on their roster.

It will be interesting to see if the Bengals give Lawson some snaps while the Buccaneers have their first-string offensive line in the game. But the real show could come when Lawson takes aim at the Tampa Bay reserves. Backup quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, the former Bengal, may get to know Lawson better than he would like.

My guess is Carl is actually that good. He’ll beat most offensive linemen. Not all, but most. If he stays healthy he’ll be the beast we know and love!

    Since he has always been such hard working student of the game. It’s fun watching as the local media starts to see what we saw the second he hit the field!

    I agree PMT, if he can just stay healthy there is no ceiling for him and All-Pro is in his future!
