Round 3: Pick 93 – Dylan Parham, OG (Memphis)
Dylan Parham is an interesting name to watch and his place in this draft greatly hinges on how he does at the Senior Bowl next week. Ryan Fowler of The Draft Network discussed this last month, noting that Parham could be on a similar trajectory to that of Broncos o-lineman Quinn Meinerz, who shot up the draft boards after impressing during pre-draft events.
Parham is considered small for the position but has always been able to overcome that to this point. Of course, the NFL is a whole different animal.
Parham spent time at left guard and right tackle during his time at Memphis and he projects more as a guard in the NFL. Cincinnati needs help at both guard spots (especially if Quinton Spain leaves) so adding Parham could make sense, even if Spain is retained.
Round 4: Pick 131 – JoJo Domann, CB (Nebraska)
With the Bengals likely parting ways with Trae Waynes this offseason, they’ll need to add a cornerback. Waiting until the fourth round might not be the most popular decision amongst the fans but JoJo Domann would be a great get on Day 3.
Now, it’s worth noting that Domann was considered as a linebacker during his time with the Huskers but PFF has him as a cornerback prospect. This is what they said about it:
"Domann may be a 6-foot-1, 230-pound linebacker, but the role he played at Nebraska was closer to that of a slot cornerback. Still, he earned an 87.8 coverage grade in 2021 to go with an 83.1 run-defense grade."
This is what makes Domann an excellent addition. The dude is as versatile as they come and could be slotted in different spots on the defense. He finished with an 87.2 PFF grade and is a high-motor guy. He’d fit in well with this team, whether it’s in the secondary or as a linebacker.
