The Cincinnati Bengals need to fix their offensive line this offseason and it might take a complete overhaul. We saw the Kansas City Chiefs do this last year and while they showed its possible, the Chiefs also lucked out that they were able to slot in a second-rounder at center and a freaking sixth-rounder at right guard. Cincinnati probably won’t luck out in that department.

So, with that said, how will the Bengals fix their offensive line for the 2022 season? A strong argument could be made that the entire unit needs to be shaken up and that includes Jonah Williams not being a lock at left tackle moving forward.

Cincy has plenty of money to spend in free agency and all of their draft picks, so there’s no reason to think they won’t add some help on the o-line for what’s going to be the most important offseason in the past three decades.

During the season, I took my best guess as to who would make up the team’s starting o-line in 2022 but we have a better idea now as to who might be available in free agency and the draft. That should make these predictions more and more fun as we progress through the offseason.

Let’s get started by looking at who will start at left tackle and protect Joe Burrow’s blindside.
