Breaking down the most underrated players of the Arizona Cardinals
By Sion Fawkes
Michael Dogbe, DE
A former seventh-round pick for the Arizona Cardinals, Dogbe saw action in just 11 games in 2019 and 2020. He recorded just six tackles but showed off his potential with one sack, two tackles for a loss, and two quarterback hits.
In 2021, Dogbe received some extended playing time. And although he played in no more than 26 percent of all defensive snaps, he still managed 27 combined tackles, one sack, one tackle for loss, two quarterback hits, and a fumble recovery.
Playing in 263 total snaps shows that he made a play every ten snaps. Look for that number to increase in 2022. Mainly if injuries affect the defensive line. If J.J. Watt ends up leaving following the 2022 season, you can further expect Dogbe, if he performs well, to be in the running to snag the starting spot at defensive end.
