The Cincinnati Bengals have had three picks in the 2022 NFL Draft and all have been on the defensive side of the ball. What positions should they look to spend their final four picks of the draft on? 

With the secondary and defensive line adding new faces through the 2022 NFL Draft, there are still plenty of positions for the Cincinnati Bengals to address on the third and final day of this year’s draft.

Let’s check out three positions that the stripes should look to target during Saturday’s draft.

3. Wide Receiver

Even with the trio of Ja’Marr Chase/Tyler Boyd/Tee Higgins at the helm, the Bengals need to add depth at wide receiver and Day 3 of the draft might be the best time to do just that.

As of now, the stripes have Stanley Morgan, Mike Thomas, Trenton Irwin, and Trent Taylor as their wide receiver reserves. That doesn’t put them in a great position should any of their starters go down for an extended period of time.

Some realistic names for Cincinnati to target consist of Justyn Ross of Clemson, Tre Turner of Virginia Tech, and Tay Martin of Oklahoma State. They were able to hit on a seventh-round receiver just four years ago with the selection of Auden Tate so maybe they can do it again this year on Day 3.
