Bennett was drafted in the sixth round of the 2015 NFL Draft by the Jaguars. He played in 13 games for the Jaguars that year but has spent the past two seasons on injury lists.

He’s recorded 11 tackles and 0.5 sacks since arriving in the NFL.

Bennett was a major factor on the Ohio State defensive line, particularly in the team’s 2014 national championship run.
