Original Pick- Jordan Willis, Edge, Kansas State

The Bengals would undoubtedly love to have this one back, as Jordan Willis is no longer apart of the team in Cincinnati.

Willis was drafted with the hopes that he could eventually replace aging defensive end, Michael Johnson, and provide a boost to the pass rush. He showed some promise but with the changing of coaching regimes, Willis no longer fit into the plans for the future. He’s landed on the Jets but hasn’t made much of an impact there either.

If the Bengals could go back and add Chris Godwin, the offensive talent in Cincinnati would be downright scary. In 2019 alone, the Buccaneers receiver hauled in 1,333 receiving yards with 9 touchdowns to go with it. Averaging an impressive 15.1 yards per catch, he’s a deep threat that allows offensive coordinators to open up the playbook.

A receiving corps of A.J. Green, Tyler Boyd, Auden Tate, and Godwin would almost assuredly be the best in the entire NFL. Oh, and add in the fact that Mahomes would be throwing to them as well.
