4th round: Graham Glasgow, C. Michigan- The Bengals need someone to compete for the starting center job. Bodine has been the weak link on this line, but Glasgow also provides versatility as he has played center and guard. Good lower body strength. Explosive at the point of attack and continues to drive with his lower body. Also has good upper body strength to move blockers away from the gap.

Struggles with moving his feet to move the defenders back. Some off the field concerns as he was caught drinking and driving in 2014, he also was caught with alcohol while on probation.

5th round: Victor Ochi, DE/OLB. Stony Brook- A strong, explosive burst off the line of scrimmage with hands to go along with it. Keeps his motor going, bending and dipping around the edge letting his speed to take over. Has long arms so he extends with a powerful punch to either keep the offensive lineman away or push them back.

Ochi uses both speed and power to beat his opponent. Although he’s smaller than wanted and also played against lower competition. There’s a lot to like about his game and he did very well in the Shrine game. The Bengals like players with his type of upside, and if the 5th round it’d be hard to pass up.

6th round: Jordan Lucas, S. Penn State- A much more vicious hitter than his height suggests. Being a former wide receiver he is able to read routes and has quick feet to mirror receivers. He has a great demeanor on defense and isn’t afraid to get physical.

His biggest issue is he still seems new to the position and sometimes uses hands down the field when he shouldn’t. There’s a lot to like about Lucas’ game and how much more can be built upon it. Definitely could be a huge draft diamond.

7th round: Bralon Addison, WR/RB. Oregon- The Bengals need some competition in the return game. With Adam Jones possibly not being back, it could just be between Tate and Alford. Sure, we have other guys we want to return the ball, but who knows. Gives the Bengals a quick player they need and a special teams contributor.
