Would drafting a tight end to bolster a position that is depleted on the depth chart make sense during the mid to late rounds of this year’s draft? C.J. Conrad is definitely someone to pay attention to if he’s on the board and the Cincinnati Bengals are on the clock.

With the return of injured tight end Tyler Eifert uncertain for 2019, C.J. Uzomah being an unrestricted free agent in 2019, Matt Lengel being a free agent as well, and the only other option on the depth chart being Jordan Franks,  it could definitely be a strong possibility to explore options at the tight end position as a potential day two or three steal in the NFL Draft in April. This draft has arguably one of the greater tight end classes in a number of years, and adding another C.J. in C.J. Conrad to the roster could be beneficial to the receiving core, as well as depth for the offensive line.
