5 tight end options for the Bengals in the 2022 NFL Draft
4. Jeremiah Hall, Oklahoma
When you watch Jeremiah Hall, he reminds you of former Bengals fullback Jeremy Johnson. Except, Hall is a tight end. But he is not just that. He lined up everywhere for the Sooners. Oklahoma used him as an inline tight end, wide receiver, fullback, running back, and wing/H-back.
It is also worth noting that he was an integral part of the Sooners’ special teams.
Hall’s versatility is sure to be intriguing to offensive coordinators. Such flexibility could be especially advantageous for an offense like the Bengals, which relies on running several plays from similar formations and personnel.
That, along with the fact that he has shown he can hold up well in run blocking, pass blocking, and blitz pickup, should make him an intriguing late-round prospect for teams.
Right now, PFF ranks him 271st overall. If this is the case in April, Cincinnati could target him in the seventh round or make him a “priority” free agent. Hall could potentially offer incredible value and versatility to an NFL squad.
No, Hall is not the receiving threat that some other tight ends are. He finished his Sooners career with 68 receptions for 757 yards and 12 receiving touchdowns. However, there are no tight ends that bring as much to the table as he does.
