Before some players get noticed at the national level, there has to be one insane moment that stands out. Whether it's one game, one quarter, or even one play, they have one thing that puts them on the map to really get people noticing. This is defensive lineman Michael Dogbe's moment, as he benched an unheard of 505 pounds. 

You wouldn't believe it unless you saw it. 

Remember that time where Aaron Donald almost put up 500 pounds and the internet went nuts? Well, Dogbe is a full five years younger, is still in college, and of course, is not the reigning DPOY like Donald is. Hopefully, that puts this feat into perspective for you. 

It was this performance that put Dogbe on Bruce Feldman's "freak" list that has included names like Saquon Barkley and Myles Garrett in the past. 

It's hard to imagine Dogbe reaching that level of hype as he finished his junior season at Temple with just 26 total tackles and two for a loss, but his combine numbers have been ridiculous. Aside from his legendary bench press, he repped 225 pounds 37 times, squatted 685 pounds, broad jumped 9-7 and ran a 4.85 in the 40. 

Regardless of how he plays this season, his combine numbers alone will likely land him on the radar of many teams. We've seen players impress at the combine and fly up big boards many times. Dogbe may be the next one on that list.
