Cincinnati Bengals four round 2021 mock draft
If there was ever a case of talent and need meeting in the middle, this is it. According to most, offensive tackle Penei Sewell is considered the best non-quarterback prospect in the upcoming class, a convenient development considering the Bengals’ biggest need. It’s extraordinarily easy to see why he’s so highly regarded.
Standing at 6’6, weighing in at 330-pounds, and possessing the arm length that scouts often desire, Sewell already has an NFL frame. Add in the fact that he’s still just 20-years-old, and the Oregon standout checks every box that exists outside the field of play.
The best news is he checks nearly every box between the lines as well. He’s phenomenal in pass protection and he’s just as strong in the ground game, a fact that bodes well for a Cincinnati team that has been unable to find its footing in the rushing attack.
With the selection of Sewell, the Bengals suddenly find themselves set at tackle for the next ten years. Jonah Williams has all the ability in the world to flip over to the right tackle spot and hold his own.
Burrow will be able to rest easy knowing he’s got two of the most promising young bookends in the game protecting him.
