Joel Dublanko, LB (Cincinnati)

Joel Dublanko is a very physical linebacker who played his college football at Cincinnati, and to me personally, it was a surprise that he wasn’t drafted. Dublanko, a 6-foot-3 240-pound linebacker, was the anchor of the Cincinnati defense that struck fear in the hearts of opponents last season.

Dublanko, in my opinion, actually has a pretty solid shot of making the final 53-man roster for the Saints. Dublanko is a very physical linebacker who excels primarily in the run game, but he has showcased his athletic ability throughout his college career with the ball in his hands.

Dublanko was named to the First Team All-ACC Team for his stellar play this past season where he accumulated 113 tackles, 5.5 sacks, and one interception. He fits the mold of a New Orleans Saints linebacker; physical, sure-tackler, and leadership.

Dublanko could shock some people this offseason and he could really push some previous year players for a job.
