In Bengals news, who is the team being linked to in mock drafts? Also, free agency is in full swing. Who else will the Bengals bring in?
The draft is set to take place April 27-29 in Kansas City and the Bengals hold the 28th overall pick. Positions like cornerback, tight end, safety, and offensive tackle could all be options here for the stripes. Last year, the team drafted a safety with the 31st overall pick but since then, Cincinnati has lost both of its starting safeties.
What the Bengals do in the draft will heavily depend on what else happens in free agency. The team took their time the first few days but then made a massive signing with the Orlando Brown deal. What other moves do they have up their sleeves?
