Five Offensive Linemen the Cincinnati Bengals could target in 2020
It is evident the Cincinnati Bengals need to address the offensive line in a big way. Here we look at 5 prospects they could target in the 2020 NFL Draft.
The Cincinnati Bengals are still win-less going into October of Zac Taylor‘s first season. A huge reason for that is the offensive line. Injuries and retirements have taken a huge toll on the group moving forward.
Jonah Williams was supposed to come in and anchor a line that badly needed a steady presence before seeing his season end in injury. Clint Boling, a consistent leader both on the field and in the locker room, decided to retire for fear of further injury. Recently acquired Cordy Glenn has suffered a concussion that has had him on the injury report for weeks on end.
It’s clear the Bengals need to hit the reset button. This off-season looks like the right time to do just that. Right now they can count on Trey Hopkins and remain hopeful for Williams, but anything beyond that remains a question mark.
They should have plenty of ammunition to get a few new faces along the offensive trenches. If the team decides that their franchise quarterback isn’t in this class, they would have a top 5 pick to go get the top offensive lineman prospect for the second straight year. If they take the advice of other GM’s around the league, they could have an extra first-round pick to scoop up a top player at the position as well. You can be sure they target some guys in the later rounds too.
Here are some of the top options the Cincinnati Bengals front office should consider to shore up the offensive line position.
