Carlos Dunlap is an American football defensive end and linebacker for the Kansas City Chiefs of the National Football League (NFL). He played college football at Florida where he won a National Championship in 2009.
South Carolina’s North Charleston is where Dunlap was born. He participated in the Fort Dorchester Patriots high school football team while attending Fort Dorchester High School in North Charleston. He recorded 103 tackles, 22 for a loss, and 9 quarterback sacks in his junior season. He had 105 tackles, 35 for loss, and 24 sacks as a senior, earning him a spot in the inaugural Offense-Defense All-American Bowl.
Dunlap was anticipated to be selected in the first round and possibly in the top ten after his second season. After a lacklustre junior season and a DUI arrest, his draft standing started to deteriorate.
It was reported on January 11, 2010, that Dunlap would sacrifice his remaining eligibility and participate in the NFL Draft.
Dunlap participated in the NFL Scouting Combine and completed all of the positional drills there. His overall performance at the combine was criticized by a number of scouts, and team representatives were unimpressed with him as he was being interviewed.
Dunlap was chosen by the Cincinnati Bengals in the second round of the 2010 NFL Draft (54th overall). Dunlap was selected in 2010 as the tenth defensive end overall.
Dunlap was given a four-year, $3.71 million contract by the Cincinnati Bengals on July 28, 2010, which included a $1.22 million signing bonus and a guarantee of $1.77 million.
