The Cincinnati Bengals have had an aggressive offseason so far, setting up for a bold draft at the end of the month.
The Cincinnati Bengals have come out of the gate swinging this offseason, rightfully so after a disappointing 2-14 campaign. The front office has completely revamped their secondary, brought in a top tier defensive tackle to pair with Geno Atkins, added pieces at positions of need, and more. However, there is still plenty of work to do.
Come the end of April, the Bengals will have one of the most important three day stretches in franchise history. If the team finds success, they could secure their next franchise quarterback and other valuable players, vaulting them back into playoff contention with the freshly expanded format. If they fail, it could ultimately be the beginning of the end for the Zac Taylor era and set the organization back several years.
The goal will be to add premiere young talent while also securing help for their immediate needs at offensive line and linebacker. Adding prospects to the pipeline at corner and wide receiver will undoubtedly be at the forefront of Duke Tobin’s mind as well, as both groups have players who are either towards the end of their careers or coming close to their contract expiring.
With so much on the line, here are three bold predictions for the Cincinnati Bengal’s 2020 draft.
