People aren’t counting on the Cincinnati Bengals to be all that competitive in 2021 and a big reason why is their division is tough and their roster has more weaknesses than strengths.

While the offensive line, linebackers, and tight ends don’t pop off the page, the Bengals have two position groups in particular that could be the best in the league this year. It won’t be easy, of course, and even if these guys are the best in the NFL, they could still manage to get overlooked simply for being members of the Bengals.

For the team to be competitive and relevant this year, it’s important for these guys to play like they’re the best at their position and if that happens and the weaknesses play better than anticipated, the Bengals could surprise some people this year.

One of these groups is a pretty obvious one but the other one is listed because one of the best players in the league is at that position and that automatically ups its stock. Plus, the surrounding talent isn’t too shabby either.

Let’s take a look at the two position groups on the Cincinnati Bengals’ roster that could end up being at the top of the pack when the 2021 season is in the books.
