If the season ended today, the Cincinnati Bengals would own the No. 29 pick in the 2022 NFL Draft. Wild, isn’t it?
Having such a late pick is a new experience for the organization, which picked in the top five the past two years and was able to add major impact players in Joe Burrow and Ja’Marr Chase. The year prior they took Jonah Williams with the No. 11 overall pick.
All three of those guys have panned out to this point but now, Cincy won’t be able to land one of the biggest stars in the draft as they have the past few years.
It does feel like a foregone conclusion, however, that they’ll address the offensive line heavily in the offseason. For this mock draft, Cincinnati definitely fixates on their o-line needs early on, starting with the first round.
Let’s check out how things went for the stripes in this four-round mock draft, which was simulated on Pro Football Focus. I haven’t used PFF’s mock draft simulator before and it was a much different experience from the simulators on The Draft Network and Pro Football Network.
With that knowledge out there, let’s check out the players Cincinnati added in this four-round mock.
