When all is said and done, reality most likely falls somewhere in between these two scenarios. Whichever end of the spectrum it lands closest to will largely determine how successful the Bengals are this season.

There will likely be at least a slight learning curve for Jonah Williams, but his overall career outlook appears to be promising.

Michael Jordan and Fred Johnson will likely take a step forward in their development, but they’re still young and will need time to grow fully into what they can be.

We’ve seen two seasons from Billy Price so far and there hasn’t been a lot to be hopeful about. There’s always a chance he breaks through but it doesn’t look promising. That leaves Cincinnati relying on guys like Su’a Filo to fill the right guard position and it will have the front office looking for a long-term option for that spot next offseason.

The front office has certainly tried to shore up the trenches. From spending premiere draft capital to pulling off complicated trades, they’ve explored avenues to improvement. Unfortunately, things haven’t panned out.

They’ve opted to develop the talent they’ve acquired and bet on their potential. There’s nothing wrong with that and it could pay off in a big way. At the very least, they should find some key players among this group and can continue improving the unit when the opportunity arises.
