Carlos Dunlap (born February 28, 1989) is an American football defensive end for the Cincinnati Bengals of the National Football League (NFL). He played college football for the University of Florida, and was a key member of the Florida team which won the 2009 national championship. He was then drafted by the Bengals in the second round of the 2010 NFL Draft.

Early years

Dunlap was born in North Charleston, South Carolina.[1] He attended Fort Dorchester High School in North Charleston, where he played for the Fort Dorchester Patriots high school football team. As a senior, he recorded 105 tackles and 24 sacks and was chosen to play in the first Offense-Defense All-American Bowl.[2]

College career

Dunlap received an athletic scholarship to attend the University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida, where he played for coach Urban Meyer's Florida Gators football team from 2007 to 2009.[3]

As a true freshman in 2007, he played in 13 games, recording 7 tackles and a sack. As a sophomore in 2008, Dunlap played in all 14 of the Gators games recording 39 tackles, a team-high 9.5 sacks and three blocked punts. He was the defensive MVP of the Gators win over the Oklahoma Sooners in the 2009 BCS National Championship Game, recording 4 tackles, and half a sack during the game. He also was an AP Second-Team All-SEC selection.

As a junior in 2009 Dunlap played in 13 games. He missed one game, the SEC Championship, due to suspension after being arrested on driving under the influence of alcohol.[4] During the season he recorded 38 tackles and 9 sacks and was a consensus first-team All-SEC selection. He ended his career with 84 tackles 19.5 sacks and 3 blocked kicks. After his junior year, Dunlap decided to forgo his senior season and enter the 2010 NFL Draft.[5]

Professional career

Dunlap was drafted by the Cincinnati Bengals in the second round of the 2010 NFL Draft.[6]

Dunlap did not see much playing time early the season, but received more playing time due to several injuries on the Bengals defensive line. He finished the season as the team's sack leader with 9.5 sacks, despite playing in just 12 games. The 9.5 sacks were also the most by a rookie in team history.[7]

In July 2013, Dunlap was re-signed by the Bengals to a 6 year, $40 million contract.[8]
