Dede Westbrook or Mike Williams

More from Stripe Hype

Westbrook is one of the most exciting players in the draft class. As a Heisman trophy finalist, he compiled 1,465 yards and 16 touchdowns on only 76 receptions. . The down side to Westbrook is that he is only 6’0″, 175 pounds.. He’s more suited as a slot receiver. Although, drafting a slot receiver early is not out of the question, the Rams did it with Tavon Austin and it to a degree worked out.

The thing with Cincinnati is that Tyler Boyd plays the slot, but Brandon Lafell is headed towards free agency. Lafell has had a really good season and should also be back next season, but at this point who knows. Westbrook is a playmaker and despite size e could really help Cincinnati in the passing game especially during a season like this one.

However, Westbrook has been arrested for domestic violence twice and that could be a cause for concern heading into draft day. If the Bengals want to go into a direction they can look at Mike Williams from Clemson.

Williams doesn’t remind me of the rest of wide receivers that have came from Clemson. He’s not Sammy Watkins or Deandre Hopkins, but next to A.J. Green he wouldn’t have to be. At 6’4″, 225 pounds he has the size and the production to make him qualified for a top 10 pick. Either one of these player would give Andy Dalton a reliable target and could help Cincinnati finally win a playoff game
