1. Interior Offensive Line

With the Bengals spending their first three picks on defense, the biggest remaining needs are now on the offensive side of the ball with the interior offensive line being the biggest need left.

Yes, the stripes revamped their offensive line with the additions of Ted Karras, Alex Cappa, and La’el Collins but they still need a left guard. The disheartening news surrounding Jackson Carman might force the Bengals to move the position up on their draft board from where it was previously.

The depth at guard isn’t great, which is another reason guard needs to be a focal point on Day 3. Hakeem Adeniji and D’Ante Smith are really the only two backups who can come in and start at guard in a pinch.

Some names remaining on the board should Cincinnati make the interior offensive line a priority are Darian Kinnard of Kentucky, Zach Tom of Wake Forest, and Cade Mays of Tennessee. Any of these guys would give the Bengals a nice depth piece at offensive guard.

With one pick in the fourth round, one pick in the fifth round, and two picks in the seventh round, the Cincinnati Bengals can make sure that all of these positions get addressed by the end of the 2022 NFL Draft.
