The Cincinnati Bengals will need several players currently under the radar to step up to have a productive season in 2021. Here are the top four Bengals to get to know before they become household names.
Cincinnati already has a few names that are household names to anyone who watches the NFL (Joe Burrow, to name one) and several others that are prominent among Bengals fans as the team gears up for the 2021 season (Joe Mixon, Tee Higgins). That being said, there are some names that need to be identified as potential breakout stars on this team.
There has been a lot of movement and excitement over the last few seasons with the Bengals being able to select high in the draft. This has created an instant buzz around the top picks in the last two drafts.
Joe Burrow and Ja’Marr Chase can’t win a championship on their own though. A strong cast of players needs to step up this year to help out Cincinnati’s usual high flyers. This year there are a number of candidates who could have lights-out seasons, entering as a no-namer and leaving as a star.
If you want to be able to say “I was following them before they became famous,” these are the top four contenders to make sure you know.
