The Cincinnati Bengals moved up from the 63rd pick to the 60th pick and with their new draft spot took Nebraska cornerback Cam Taylor-Britt. They beefed up their secondary with the addition of Daxton Hill on Thursday and now added the fiery Husker cornerback to their roster.

As mentioned, the Bengals added Hill on Thursday in a move that some fans were a bit disappointed with but the organization made up for it with their second-round move. They’re obviously loading up in the secondary and why not do so?

The NFL is a pass-happy league so if a team wants to slow offenses down, getting good players in the secondary is the way to go.

The addition of Taylor-Britt means that he’ll be competing for a starting job with Eli Apple, who was re-signed to a one-year deal this offseason. Apple was a solid player for the Bengals last year but he definitely had his not-so-good moments. It always felt as though Cincy would end up drafting a cornerback early on though and now they have that guy in Taylor-Britt.

Something the Bengals are clearly making sure they’re adding to their secondary is speed. Joe Goodberry mentioned the 40-times that both Hill and Taylor-Britt had and it’s safe to say that these guys can flat-out fly!

I’m excited for what the Bengals are cooking up so far. They might have passed on a corner in the first round but they were aggressive in moving up to add one in the second round and they got a damn good one. As someone who has a lot of ties to Nebraska and watches plenty of Cornhusker football, I’m really excited to see Taylor-Britt don the stripes.
