Round 7: Pick 237 – Dashaun White, LB (Oklahoma)

With their final pick in the 2022 NFL Draft, the Bengals add another linebacker in the form of Dashaun White out of Oklahoma. White isn’t much of a sack master but he racked up 54 tackles and recovered a fumble through 11 games with the Sooners this year.

He probably wouldn’t be anything more than a depth piece or special teams contributor but that’s mostly what teams are expecting to land in the seventh round anyway.

In this mock draft, the Bengals hit the offensive line hard and that’s something that fans would be perfectly fine with. Burrow needs to be protected if this team wants to go anywhere on his rookie deal.

The defense was also addressed and hopefully, the unit can stay competitive after what’s proven to be a successful season for them. Taking a step back would be unfortunate.
