Cincinnati Bengals Best 2020 Draft Options Rounds 4-7
The Cincinnati Bengals will have plenty of opportunities to add talented players to their roster this offseason. Here are several good options in each round on day three.
Earlier this week, we looked at the Cincinnati Bengal’s best options in the opening rounds of the draft. Now, the focus shifts to day three. With Cincinnati having the first pick at the top of each round, there will still be valuable players up for grabs. Here are several prospects the front office could target in rounds 4 through 7 of the 2020 NFL Draft.
Akeem Davis-Gaither, LB
The linebacker out of Appalachian State could be just what Cincinnati needs on the defensive side of the ball. Davis-Gaither is slightly undersized at 6’2″, 219 pounds, but what the 22-year-old lacks in size, he makes up for in other areas of his game.
The talented linebacker has elite instincts. His football IQ is top-notch, and mixing his intelligence with his athletic ability makes Davis-Gaither a potentially high draft pick in the fourth round.
He’s good in coverage and a consistent tackler. In addition to those traits, his quickness makes his ability to shoot gaps among the best of the entire 2020 draft class. He is going to have a slight learning curve, but getting a linebacker with such a high ceiling should be something the Bengals consider.
Solomon Kindley, OG
The interior offensive lineman out of Georgia could be a solid pick depending on the direction the Bengals go in rounds 2-3. Kindley has ideal size for a guard, and with speculation that some interior lineman on the Bengals roster could be moved, the Georgia lineman could be a nice, young addition to the roster.
Kindley has some struggles with his mobility, but his strength is special. Although he is going to be somewhat of a development project, he certainly would be in the conversation to start on the Bengals offensive line in 2020. With the selection of Joe Burrow looking very likely, adding to the offensive line is key to protect the young quarterback.
Michael Pittman Jr., WR
In a loaded wide receiver class, Michael Pittman Jr. could be a solid option in the middle rounds. With uncertainty in the wide receiver core, the position has become a need in Cincinnati. The wide receiver out of USC brings athleticism and physicality to the table. In addition, his size makes his pairing with Tyler Boyd and John Ross solid. Getting a young wideout to add to the roster is something the Bengals should do in 2020, especially with how deep the class is this year.
