Round 7, No. 251: Mason Schreck, TE, Buffalo.

Schreck is essentially a luxury pick who will compete for a roster spot this summer. He caught 59 passes for 651 yards and four touchdowns in his final season at Buffalo and gives the Bengals their third pass-catcher of the draft. How he fits: Schreck compared himself to Tyler Eifert, a player he said he grew up watching. Tight end Continue Reading...

The Bengals traded up to get Wilson, although he doesn’t play at a position of strong need. There was already a connection there because the Bengals’ 2016 first round cornerback William Jackson III was Wilson’s teammate. Wilson’s versatility is intriguing. How he fits: The Bengals see Wilson as a potential nickel cornerback or safety and someone who could also cover Continue Reading...

Bengals linebackers coach Jim Haslett seemed excited about adding Evans, who seems to be a somewhat of a project. Haslett said Evans is not polished and needs to work on his run support, but he loved his four interceptions in his last season at Oklahoma, two of which went for touchdowns. How he fits: Haslett said he liked Evans’ ability Continue Reading...

The Bengals have said that they are fine with the players on their offensive line, despite a 2016 season in which they allowed 41 sacks. The two best players on the line, Kevin Zeitler and Andrew Whitworth, departed in free agency. Despite their public confidence, the Bengals can’t be completely confident in the offensive line going forward, so it was Continue Reading...

Round 5, No. 153: Jake Elliott, K, Memphis.

The Bengals needed a kicker after struggling to find a viable one in 2016. Cincinnati stayed loyal to Mike Nugent for more than half the season, even though he missed six extra points and six field goals. Nugent’s replacement, Randy Bullock, missed a game-winning kick against the Texans. The Bengals hadn’t drafted a specialist since 2009, when they took punter Continue Reading...

Round 4, No. 138: Ryan Glasgow, DT, Michigan.

According to ESPN Stats & Information, this is the first time in team history the Bengals have drafted three defensive linemen in the first four rounds. That means defensive coordinator Paul Guenther is serious about getting younger in all areas of the defense. Glasgow is a run-stuffer who ended his college career with two sacks and a forced fumble in Continue Reading...

Round 4, No. 128: Josh Malone, WR, Tennessee.

The offense was one of the weak points in 2016, putting up inconsistent numbers from week to week and at times struggling to move the ball. It was clear the team had to rely heavily on star wide receiver A.J. Green without much help. That was partially attributed to several newcomers in the fold, including Brandon LaFell and Tyler Boyd. Continue Reading...

Round 4, No. 116: Carl Lawson, DE, Auburn.

0 Submitted by on Sun, 30 April 2017, 05:21
Speed seems to be a running theme for the Bengals in this draft. Lawson ran a 4.67-second 40-yard dash at the combine, which ranked eighth among all defensive linemen. The Bengals’ third-round pick, Jordan Willis, ran a 4.53 40-yard dash, while first-round wideout John Ross ran a 4.22, which set a combine record. Lawson likely slid in the draft due Continue Reading...
