The Bengals continue to rebuild their offensive line here with the selection of Solomon Kindley out of Georgia. Kindley has been overlooked due to the fact that he plays alongside the top offensive tackle prospect in this draft class, Andrew Thomas. However, the 22-year-old has plenty to bring to the table himself.
The Draft Network had this to glowing review of him,
"“Heavyweight boxer on the interior — he pairs incredibly well with another power player in Andrew Thomas to give the Georgia Bulldogs ample punch in the ground game off to the left. Kindley has a ton of pop to his hands and provides ample anchor, allowing him to either roll through contact and carry his momentum forward or sit down on charges when he’s in pass protection.”"
With that, his game would work well for the Cincinnati offense that struggled to get the run game going at times. If he’s able to continue to get a good push at the line of scrimmage and knock linebackers off course with his heavy hands, it could really open things up for Joe Mixon and company.
With all the experience he’s had in college going against NFL caliber defensive tackles, he has the opportunity to come in and push for playing time on day one.
