The Cincinnati Bengals used their first round selection in the 2024 NFL Draft to snag some additional protection for franchise quarterback Joe Burrow, and understandably so after Burrow spent the end of last season on the sideline with a wrist injury.

Keeping Burrow upright and out on the field will be of the utmost importance for the Bengals moving forward, and that's where Amarius Mims comes in. Cincinnati selected Mims with the 18th overall pick in the draft, and his selection certainly got a rise out of fans on social media. Here are some of the best reactions.
