Round 6: Michael Dogbe, Temple
A potential sleeper in this year’s draft class is Michael Dogbe from Temple. He did not get an invitation to the combine last month, but has not let that hold him back from putting together a solid pre-draft process in order to attempt to catch the eyes of scouts and general managers.
At his pro day, Dogbe measured in at 6’3 and 284 pounds and still managed to run a 5.07 40 yard dash as a defensive tackle with explosive 10 and 20 yard splits. He also ran an impressive 7.49 3-cone drill and posted 34 reps on the bench press. Dogbe proved he has the explosiveness, agility, and athleticism to compete in the NFL.
During his senior season in 2018, Dogbe recorded 72 total tackles, 12.5 of which came behind the line of scrimmage, and seven sacks for the Owls. For his career he posted a total of 19.5 tackles for loss and eight and a half sacks.
Here in the sixth round the Buccaneers could land a potential player to mold into a starter one day, and could get a quality depth piece to compete with Allen, Gholston, and Nunez-Roches right away. Dogbe would bring an athletic, explosive element to the Tampa Bay defensive line.
