4 Players that could Sneak into being the Bengals 2nd Round Pick
For all of the certainty that surrounds the Cincinnati Bengals’ first pick, there is equally as much mystery revolving around their second selection. Here are three players that could sneak into being the choice at the start of day two.
The Cincinnati Bengals are heavily suspected to select Joe Burrow with the first overall pick come draft weekend. After that, however, their plans remain a mystery to those outside of the inner circle of decision-makers.
Everything fans and analysts thought they once knew about the team can be thrown out the window after their earth-shattering free agency period clearly shifted their philosophy of player acquisition. The front office could stick to their usual draft approach, or we could see an entirely different system.
The Bengals could still use significant help along the offensive trenches as well as in the linebacker room. However, the talent available at the top of round two may lead to them selecting a wideout, adding to their already impressive array of weapons.
The leaders to hear their name called at the start of day two consist of Josh Jones, Ceasar Ruiz, Patrick Queen, Kenneth Murray, Justin Jefferson, and Denzel Mims. Each has first-round talent though, and all of them could be off the board by pick 33.
If that’s the case, the Bengals’ big board could be drastically different from those that are present in the media, opening the possibility that they could select a player nobody is expecting. Here are four prospects that could sneak into being the team’s second-round pick.
