Former top 10 pick John Ross is reportedly on the trade block, which leaves a void on this Bengals offense. While free agency is an option, the NFL draft is filled with talented pass catchers.

  •  Parris Campbell- The Ohio State speedster will bring the explosiveness and house call type of speed that John Ross should’ve brought in his first two seasons. Campbell has developed his versatility as a receiver. He can move anywhere along the formation and force defenses to shift towards him.
  • ·Riley Ridley- Calvin Ridley’s younger brother is an under the radar player in this class. He has the combination of size (6’2 200 lbs), speed, and soft hands. He is another receiver that has formation versatility. Ridley is a threat on all three levels of the passing game.
  • · J.J. Arcega-Whiteside- The Stanford Cardinal pairs a big body with the abilities of a power forward in basketball. He understands how to stack defenders down field and box them out in the red zone. Arcega-Whiteside is a possession receiver with sneaky speed to beat defenses over the top.
