40. Alex Redmond, OG

Redmond was in the competition for the starting right guard spot but didn’t win out. Although he won’t see much playing time barring injury, he will still provide good depth at the guard position. Redmond allows the Bengals to feel a little more comfortable at guard than at tackle.

39. Jeff Driskel, QB

Driskel slots in at 39, but his value is really hard to gauge. The team should feel confident that Driskel can man the ship should Dalton go down. That confidence in itself is enough to justify this ranking. The Bengals would be in trouble if Dalton gets hurt, but Driskel has the dual-threat ability to get this team wins.

38. CJ Uzomah, TE

Uzomah seems to be locked in behind Tyler Kroft at the tight end position, but his athleticism gives him some upside. If Eifert is healthy, don’t expect much from Uzomah. However, he could have a mini-breakout if he were given a larger role in 2018.

37. Josh Malone, WR

Malone is a guy I want to see more of this season. Like Tate, Malone isn’t an every-down player. However, Malone has elite speed for his size, which makes him an interesting target. He could be an awesome between-the-20s receiver for the Bengals if they want to spread the field.

36. Ryan Glasgow, DT

Glasgow had a quietly solid rookie year but remains stuck behind a future Hall of Famer in Geno Atkins. Glasgow plays essentially the same position as Atkins, so he won’t get many reps aside from giving Atkins a breather. However, when Glasgow gets on the field, he will have a positive impact on the defense.
