With a number of special teams contributors set to hit free agency this offseason such as Shawn Williams, Jordan Evans, and Cethan Carter, the Bengals’ focus to conclude the draft should be on replenishing the ranks of the third phase. Micah McFadden looks like a good candidate to do just that.

The former Indiana Hoosier is a team captain with good size, experience, and effort. He’s pieced together some solid performances throughout his college career, impacting the game in a variety of ways.

The Bengals shouldn’t expect any crazy contribution from him, but rather, just a solid special teams player. A guy like McFadden will help Simmons’ unit remain strong.

After 2021, the Bengals will only have one proven tight end under contract: Drew Sample. Long time veteran and locker room staple C.J. Uzomah will see his contract expire once the upcoming season concludes. Cincinnati will undoubtedly hope to re-sign him, but it would be wise to get an additional body in the building just in case.

Eubanks hasn’t lit up the Big-Ten conference by any means, but he does offer some upside in the passing game. Most importantly, he’s been playing on special teams since he was a sophomore, providing the Bengals with the skillset they’ll be looking for in their seventh-round picks.
