Third-round 69th overall, Tylan Wallace WR | Oklahoma State

The Bengals would finally get their WR in the third round with Wallace who has performed at a higher level than his ranking of the 69th best player in the 2021 NFL Draft. Wallace had 205 receptions for 3,434 receiving yards and 26 TDs in 37 career games with the Cowboys.

Wallace is a playmaker with the willingness to be physical and is excellent on 50/50 balls. If the Bengals had to wait until the third round to take a WR, Wallace would be an excellent complement to Tyler Boyd and Tee Higgins. The Oklahoma State alum would remain in black and orange in the NFL.

Fourth-round 111th overall Marlon Tuipulotu DL | USC

In three seasons of playing time at USC, Tuipulotu had 104 tackles,15.0 TFL, 8.5 sacks, three pass breakups and two forced fumbles. Tuipuluotu would add depth to the interior of the Bengals defensive line that needs to upgrade their talent. Tuipulotu has athleticism as a pass rusher and is exceptional against the run.

Tuipolutu is a 4-3 defensive tackle. With a high motor, Tuipolutu is a player who will provide maximum effort on every snap. Cincinnati projects to start D.J. Reader and Larry Ogunjobi who they signed in free agency at DT with Mike Daniels backing them up. Tuipolutu would be a good addition for the future.
