The Cincinnati Bengals have a few new players and a number of veterans who have the potential to make a difference in 2016.

After a strong draft class and a major free agency fight, the Cincinnati Bengals are poised to do everything they can to repeat as AFC North Champions. It will take more than just one or two players to do their job, but key players can make or break momentum and games.

The Bengals have key players like Andy Dalton, A.J. Green, Tyler Eifert, Geno Atkins, and Vontaze Burfict. It would be easy to place those guys into a list and it would be accurate to say they are the difference makers and can drive a season.

However, this team will be relying on a number of people to step up into roles that they aren’t used to or limited experience in. Every player on this list, have been preparing for this chance since they were signed in the NFL, many since they started playing football years before that.

Who are these players? Can they make a difference? Will they make a difference? We will have to wait and see once the season arrives. Until then, here are our top five players to watch in 2016.
