Presenting your 2017 Cincinnati Bengals Offense

It’s always fun to speculate. That’s what is going to happen here. The Bengals have taken a cornerback, with their first round pick, for five of the last six years. Other than the chance to take an edge rusher instead of Cedric Ogbuehi, the Bengals have done well with their defense.  With different possibilities including some of the ones I have already mentioned, here is a potential offensive lineup. This is not taking into consideration of pending free agents. Read it and weep.

QB- Andy Dalton, Dak Prescott

RB- Jeremy Hill, Giovani Bernard

WR- A.J. GreenKelvin BenjaminTyreek Hill

TE- Tyler Eifert, Richard Rodgers

LT- Andrew Whitworth

LG- Clint Boling

C- Russel Bodine

RG- Kevin Zeitler

RT- Jake Fisher

Next: Jeremy Hill Over Carlos Hyde?

Bengals would have had options

A potential lineup that includes Kelvin Benjamin and A.J. Green lined up on the outside, and Tyreek Hill in the slot, along with Tyler Eifert or Richard Rodgers at tight end is pretty mesmerizing. Looking back, just a few small adjustments in just the last three NFL Drafts lets Cincinnati walk away having weapons everywhere offensively. Something about this offense screams playoff win(s).

Could’ve. Should’ve. Would’ve.
