Today we wish Happy Birthday to Bengals’ defencive tackle Devon Still. To commemorate the occasion we’ll take a quick look at Still’s life and career over the past 24 years. Born in Camden, New Jersey, Devon Still played high school ball under coach Dan Ritter at Howard Technology High School. He received the title of all-state, after recording 59 tackles his senior year. Heading into college, he was ranked 12th nationally for defencive tackle recruits. In college he played for Penn State, where after redshirting as a freshman, he was plagued by injuries in his Sophomore year. An ACL injury and and a broken ankle in August, only allowed him to play ten snaps in the season finale. His career rebounded well however, as he won Big Ten defencive player of the year in 2011. He was drafted by the Bengals in the second round of the 2012 draft, as the 53 overall pick. In his rookie year he played in 8 games in the first half of the season, totaling 20 tackles. In 2013 he saw a bit more playing time, as he was active in 10 games over the course of the year. Multiple injuries throughout the season prevented more significant play time. According to the Bengals’ website, he could play a bigger role in the coming season. In June, Still revealed that his daughter had been diagnosed with cancer. We wish Devon Still and his family all the best in his 25th year. From all of us at cover32, happy birthday.
