Bengals draft picks who could be cut – No. 1: Renell Wren
The Bengals spent a fourth-round pick on Renell Wren in the 2019 NFL Draft and he’s done very little during his short time with the organization.
Wren, a standout at Arizona State, didn’t play at all in 2020 due to injury. As a rookie in 2019, Wren appeared in 11 games, starting two, and totaled eight tackles during that time. A hip injury ended his rookie campaign and he hasn’t seen the field since.
With the Bengals putting a strong emphasis on the defensive line this offseason, Wren’s chances of making the team definitely took a hit. He’ll now be competing with four rookies (Joseph Ossai, Cameron Sample, Tyler Shelvin, and Wyatt Hubert) as well as some other names like Darius Hodge, Khalil McKenzie, and Amani Bledsoe.
Not seeing the field in almost two years doesn’t bode well for Wren’s chances of making any kind of impact for the former Sun Devil. He could be an easy cap casualty for the Bengals this summer.
The Bengals haven’t gotten much out of these four recent draft picks and it’s unfortunate. Price is definitely the most disappointing of the bunch because of where he was drafted but the Bengals might not be in a situation where they can part ways with him. If they can find a way to do so, however, no one would be surprised in the least bit.
