The Cincinnati Bengals came away with safety Daxton Hill in the first round of the 2022 NFL Draft. Day 2, which consists of Rounds 2 and 3, kicks off Friday night at 7 EST and Cincy is armed with two picks (No. 63 in the second round and No. 95 in the third round). Who should they be looking to add?
I tried to be realistic with these prospects. No one should expect Nakobe Dean or Andrew Booth to fall to the stripes at pick 63. Now if the team is willing to trade up, that’s a different story, but I’m going to include players who could realistically still be on the board when the Bengals are set to make their second-round pick.
I’ll start with the guy who is probably the least likely to still be available but could, theoretically, be there for the taking.
Logan Hall, DT (Houston)
Considering that Cincinnati was listed as a potential landing spot for Logan Hall in the first round, it’s doubtful that the Houston product falls to them at 63. Be that as it may, he’s the No. 50 prospect on Daniel Jeremiah’s big board so maybe, just maybe, the big guy finds his way to the Queen City in round 2.
Hall would give the Bengals some depth on their defensive line and with Larry Ogunjobi not returning (at least not as of this writing), the team could stand to add some more talent there. Hill and Hall being the first two picks would be confusing but a fun kind of confusing.
