Cincinnati undoubtedly will attempt to answer multiple needs in this years NFL Draft. Here’s how some potential Bengal prospects performed.
With the NFL Combine officially underway, there have been a number of headlines and noise regarding the top prospects in the 2019 NFL Draft. Some praise has been given, as players such as Mike Weber impressed with a speed greater than many predicted. However, there have also been plenty of negative performances, with the worst coming from Ole Miss offensive tackle Greg Little. Little performed poorly in the box jump, speed drills, and didn’t end up benching due to a pec “injury”. Little has reminded prospects everywhere that a lack of preparation before the Combine can send a players draft stock in free fall.
The most talked about prospect for Cincinnati remains Lousiana State linebacker Devin White, and unfortunately, we will have to wait until tomorrow to see what he can do on the field. White is a natural athlete, and he is sure to impress scouts when he takes the field on Sunday.
In this piece, I will simply be laying out general notes from the Combine that the Bengals should be considering as they continue to evaluate all players moving forward, with an obvious emphasis on positions of need for the team. With that being said, here are some of the things that Cincinnati and its front office had a chance to see in person over the last few days.
