NFL Mock Draft Roundup: Bengals’ options grow after sliding


#It felt like the #Cincinnati #Bengals had locked up the third spot in the 2021 NFL #Draft.

Then, they decided to go out and get on their longest winning streak of the season, downing both the #Pittsburgh #Steelers and #Houston #Texans. They’ve actually looked good these past few weeks.

#However, with those improvements does come some negative consequences. The #Bengals have now dropped to the #No. 5 pick in the upcoming NFL #Draft, and that could still change depending on what happens on #Sunday when they close out the season against the #Baltimore #Ravens.

#If they would’ve stayed at #No. 3, #Penei #Sewell would’ve been the clear target following the two quarterbacks taken with the top two picks in the draft. #Trevor #Lawrence is favored to go #No. 1 with either #Zach #Wilson or #Justin #Fields following him.

#That said, let’s dive into who the #Bengals are projected to take after they’ve secured their fourth win.

#Pro #Football #Network — WR #Ja’#Marr #Chase, LSU

#Comfortable. #Everything you do as an organization with a young quarterback should be to facilitate comfort. There is no connection in the history of college football more prolific than #Chase and #Burrow on that championship team in 2019.

#Chase lacks freak physical attributes, but he is a strong finisher above the rim and as a route runner. #He is comfortable in tight windows, through contact and is a wonder in the air. #Expect some “Get the #Gat” flair from the two after their first touchdown hookup.

CBS #Sports – OL #Rashawn #Slater, #Northwestern

The #Bengals just win, baby! They’ve now reeled off two in a row and in the process find themselves with the #No. 5 pick, which means they’re almost certainly out of the #Sewell sweepstakes. #Slater isn’t a bad consolation prize, however, in part because he was so solid at tackle in 2019 (he opted out in 2020), and he has the versatility to play guard and even center.

#Fox #Sports — OT #Alijah #Vera-Tucker, USC

#Wins over the #Steelers and #Texans – by #Ryan #Finley and #Brandon #Allen! – likely will cost the #Bengals a shot at #Sewell, so they’ll have to take the next best lineman on the board to protect #Joe #Burrow next season.

NFL #Mocks — #Selecting 11th, OT #Christian #Darrisaw, #Virginia #Tech

#After missing out on #Penei #Sewell early in this mock draft scenario, the #Bengals traded down for some additional and valuable draft capital and still come away with a very good left tackle prospect….. #Darrisaw is a tremendous athlete with length, strength, and a finisher’s mentality who would be an instant upgrade at left tackle.

#Sporting #News — OT #Penei #Sewell, #Oregon

The #Bengals have made some investments in their offensive, line including first-round tackle #Jonah #Williams from 2019, but they need to better protect franchise quarterback #Joe #Burrow when he can come back from his big knee injury. #Sewell’s strong, sturdy presence would be a great fit in front of #Burrow and also help their running game.
