In the 2020 draft, Cincinnati making the right selection with their first round pick is essential to changing the tides. There may be more than one right answer. Joe Burrow or Chase Young seems to be the conundrum that has everyone talking. For me, Burrow is easily the best choice here. Considering the weapons on this Bengals offense that would be at his disposal, Burrow is mouthwatering. He is one of the best deep ball throwers in this class. Don’t overthink this Cincinnati.
Improving the linebacker position is still a need. Dylan Moses is a name to watch for if he falls into the second round because of his ACL injury. He is an athletic run and hit defender that is a three-down backer. His abilities are exactly what the Bengals need in the middle of their defense.
Using a selection or two on the offensive line isn’t a bad idea. The current unit is still below average. Alex Leatherwood from Alabama could be a steal on day two. He is versatile with experience at guard and left tackle. A powerful athlete on the line would be a nice feather in the Bengals draft cap.
This organization has to break the mold that has been created over the years. A season’s success is built in the offseason. Proper moves and picks could catapult the Cincinnati Bengals back in contention in the AFC North.
