With Big Ten football returning on Saturday, there are a handful of top draft prospects that Bengals fans should look out for.
The Cincinnati Bengals fell to a record of 1-4-1 on Sunday in a 31-27 loss to the Indianapolis Colts. As their playoff hopes continue to diminish, fans will start to turn their attention to the NFL Draft.
This will be a crucial draft for the Bengals as they seek to build a team around quarterback Joe Burrow. The front office believes they have a championship-caliber player in Burrow and they will be trying their hardest to surround him with as much talent as possible. Luckily for them, a new crop of draft prospects will be starting their season on Saturday.
After originally being canceled for the season, Big Ten football was allowed to return to play on Oct. 22 in a vote by league presidents. Now that the wait is over, players from the conference are itching to get onto the field and improve their draft stock.
While the Big Ten has one of the most talented groups of prospects in the NCAA, there are a few specific standouts who will most appeal to the Bengals. Some of these players are notable due to playing at a position of need, while others are just so talented that they can’t be ignored. Either way, they all should be on the Bengals’ radar this season.
