With the 2020 NFL combine already underway and players set to take the field on Thursday, here are three prospects the Cincinnati Bengals should keep an eye on.
The 2020 NFL combine is already off to a great start for the Cincinnati Bengals. After months of speculation that Joe Burrow may spurn the franchise rather than return home, the former bayou signal-caller put that narrative to rest.
Even after the welcomed news, the scouting department still has a lot of work to do.
The Bengal’s team website has seemed to indicate that they’ll be focusing on the defensive side of the ball, especially for their selection in round two. Fans should keep an eye on the defensive backs, linebackers, and defensive linemen, who will be participating in drills on Saturday and Sunday.
Offensive linemen can’t be counted out either, given the struggles at the position for the past several years. This crop of wide-receiver prospects also shouldn’t be taken lightly, given it may be the best pool of talent at the position in history.
It’s important to know that head coach Zac Taylor has stated that their primary tool for scouting players is college film. So, for the sake of this article, we’ll highlight three players who have a chance to impress with their athleticism, but also have the collegiate production to back it up.
