Zimmer on Moch


Dontay Moch could make an immediate impact on an emerging Bengals' pass rush


Newest Bengals’ draft pick Dontay Moch might be a relative unknown to our fan base, but he has some tremendous athletic skills. Here’s how Bengals defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer plans to use him.

“Our vision is for him to start out as a special teams guy and use him as a third-down rusher where we can move him around and use him in drop situations with the hope he’ll become a future linebacker,” Zimmer said. “It just depends how fast he makes the transition from college defensive end that sometimes stood on his feet to a guy that has to play behind the line of scrimmage.”
