Offensive Line (9)

Jonah Williams, Ted Karras, Alex Cappa, Jackson Carman, La’el Collins, D’Ante Smith, Cordell Volson, Isaiah Prince, Ben Brown

This is probably the most rigid position to predict once you get past the starting five, which will more than likely be Jonah Williams, Jackson Carman/D’Ante Smith, Ted Karras, Alex Cappa, and La’el Collins.

I’d expect the Bengals to keep rookie Cordell Volson, especially after spending a fourth-round pick on him. After those seven, you have to find which positions need depth, and that happens to be the tackle which is why Isaiah Prince will have an advantage over guys like Trey Hill and Hakeem Adeniji.

For the ninth spot on this depth chart, it will be between Hill, Adeniji, and undrafted rookie Ben Brown who can play both center and guard, according to one of his draft profiles on Pro Football Network. However, if Brown has a good training camp, he could beat out these two for a roster spot due to his flexibility and upside.

We’ve seen what Adeniji and Hill bring to the table even though they are both still young. Cincinnati probably won’t be cut-heavy with this position because there could be a lot of movement throughout the season.

If Brown makes it over Adeniji and Hill, Cincinnati could keep both on the practice squad.
