Bengals- Stealing one player from each divisional rival: Myles Garrett

For the Browns, there are a couple of players who could really help the Bengals. The first name that comes to mind is Odell Beckham Jr., who would pair so nicely with A.J. Green and the rest of the receiving room that it would give Cincinnati the best pass-catching unit in the NFL.

Their prized free-agent acquisition, Jack Conklin, could come in at right tackle and immediately stabilize the Bengals’ entire offensive line, giving Burrow the protection he needs to succeed. Not to mention, Joe Mixon would likely see an improvement in his already stellar performance while running behind the talented bookend.

However, Myles Garrett stands head and shoulders above his teammates in terms of this scenario. The dynamic pass-rusher just adds too much to a defense to ignore. The former first overall pick racked up 13.5 sacks in his best year as a pro and at just 24-years-old, he still has plenty of time to top that number.

On one side, the Bengals would have Carlos Dunlap, and on the other, Garrett. In the middle, D.J Reader and Geno Atkins would ensure there is no weak link along the trenches. They’d be a force in both the run game and in passing situations. Add in the fact that defensive line coach Nick Eason could keep everybody extremely fresh by using Hubbard and Lawson as reserves, and it’s enough to give opposing offensive coordinators nightmares.
