A look at the top players still on the board."The first round of the 2019 NFL Draft was nothing is not interesting. It started off innocently enough Jonah Williams Jersey Womens , but soon enough surprises started to mount, The Bengals missed out on the Devin White/Devin Bush sweepstakes, but in the end got the draft’s best offensive tackle in Jonah Williams, so it ended up being a positive. They still have more needs to fill with their 10 remaining pick and although the top 32 players are off the board, there is still a lot of talent remaining. Here are the best players available heading in to Day 2 of the 2019 NFL Draft, LinebackersLinebacker is a good place to start seeing that it is the team’s biggest need. Alabama’s Mack Wilson is the top remaining player at the position. He was seen by some as a potential first-round pick, but his testing at Alabama’s pro day was troubling. Wilson’s tape, however, is impressive. The 6’2” 238-pound linebacker has a knack for making plays in the pass game and totaled six interceptions in the last two seasons. Wilson could be a good bet for a Bengals team that struggles in coverage.Minnesota linebacker Blake Cashman is another option in Round 2 or 3. Although he is always around the ball, he tends to dive at ankles on tackles rather than securing the tackle. This is troubling especially on a team which already has plenty of tackling issues.Conversely, Stanford linebacker Bobby Okereke is an excellent tackler. Okereke is 6’3”, 234 pounds and can fly around the field. He has excellent burst and closing speed and is a big hitter. He was very productive with 88 total tackles in his junior season and 94 last year.Germaine Pratt only started one season North Carolina State, but he made it count, totaling 104 tackles. Pratt is the total package. He is 6’3”, 240 pounds and has some of the best film in the class. He has very good athletic ability, but nothing that jumps off of the page like the pair of first-round linebackers.Defensive LineThis was quite a year for defensive line and a ton of talented players went off the board in Round 1. Having said that, there are still some excellent players remaining. Michigan’s Chase Winovich has a relentless motor and always seems to be around the ball. He only had five sacks in 2018, but had 8.5 the season before.The Bengals have also shown some interest in Florida’s a Jachai Polite. He has some red flags involving his attitude Jonah Williams Cincinnati Bengals Jersey , testing and effort, but is a beast against both the run and the pass, where he had 11 sacks last season.Boston College’s Zach Allen could be a fit as well. He never put up great numbers, but was an excellent moving piece in the Golden Eagles’ defensive front. Allen can play inside, outside, or with his hand in the dirt.If the Bengals decide they need a true interior defensive lineman, there are still a couple of good options available in Arizona State’s Renell Wren, Western Illinois’ Khalen Saunders, and of course Ohio State’s Dre’mont Jones.Saunders is a freak athlete who impressed at the FCS level then showed he can hang with the big boys at the Senior Bowl. Jones had a monster year for the Buckeyes, tallying 8.5 sacks as a defensive tackle, Either would make a great compliment to Geno Atkins on the inside.Defensive BackDefensive back is not really a need for the Bengals at this point. They might need to find an eventual replacement for Darqueze Dennard, but hopefully he is one of the pair of defensive backs they can keep beyond 2019. Still, with the way talent has slipped in this draft, they could end up making a value selection. Byron Murphy and Greedy Williams are widely seen as the best two cornerbacks in this draft, and it is shocking that they did not go in Round 1. Rock Ya-Sin, and Amani Oruwariye also make a strong case as top players in the group, but they have slipped as well. Florida’s Chauncey Gardner-Johnson is seen by many as the top safety in the draft, yet the versatile player remains. He is interesting because although he plays safety Jonah Williams Jersey 2019 , he is excellent in man and perhaps the best slot defender in the draft. Could he be Dennard’s replacement?The trio of Delaware’s Nasir Adderley, Virginia’s Juan Thornhill, and Kentucky’s Mike Edwards also have potential to be huge play-makers in the NFL, and could worth finding a place for in the Bengals’ secondary.QuarterbackIt is time to address the elephant in the room: Missouri quarterback Drew Lock is still available. Lock does some really good things on film. He is accurate, throws a great deep ball, and can create with his feet. Lock will not last long in Round 2, but could be a huge pick up. At the very least, the Bengals need to add a backup quarterback, and Lock could be a great developmental prospect. Other options that could be around a little later include West Virginia’s Will Grier and Buffalo’s Tyree Jackson. Grier, like Lock, has some impressive film. Both are quarterbacks who I would be excited about seeing develop in the future. Jackson is a little rough around the edges, but does some things very well. He is an accurate passer who is not flustered by the pass rush.Tight EndWhile Alabama’s Irv Smith, Jr. is still on the board, the best available player by my estimate is Jace Sternberger. The Texas A&M prospect had a great year, catching 48 passes for 832 yards and 10 touchdowns. At 6’4” and 250 pounds, he is not exactly a physical specimen by positional standards, but he has an incredible ability to gain additional yardage once the ball is in his hands. Blocking is not his strong suit though, and he would primarily serve as an additional pass-catching option to make this Bengals offense even more potent.Wide ReceiverSpeaking of pass-catchers White Jonah Williams Jersey , there are a number of options available. D.K. Metcalf, A.J. Brown, Deebo Samuel, and Hakeem Butler were all considered potential first round picks and bring very different skill sets to the table. A pair of Buckeyes in Parris Campbell and Terry McLaurin also should be high on boards going into Night 2. Receiver is not a huge need for the Bengals, but they could be tempted by one of these players or a plethora of others in Round 3. However, it is most likely that they wait until Day 3 to make a move at the position.Running BackThe Bengals lost their third running back recently, but don’t expect them to use a second or third round pick to replace him. Damien Harris, Miles Sanders, and David Montgomery are likely they next three players off of the board at the position, but there will be plenty of options for the Bengals on Day 3.Offensive LineThe Bengals already added one offensive tackle, and although they are likely to add a second, it probably won’t be on Day 2. Florida’s Jawaan Taylor could be tempting, but he probably won’t last very long. Oklahoma’s Cody Ford and Kansas State’s Dalton Risner are other players they have shown interest in through the pre-draft process. Both can play either guard or tackle, which is useful in many respects.Most Intriguing Bengals OptionsThe Bengals still have a massive need at linebacker which makes Wilson, Okereke, and Pratt all very interesting Day 2 prospects, All three could be plug-n-play starters for the Bengals. This clip shows how Wilson makes plays in the passing game.Okereke is an excellent tackler.Here is a sample of Pratt’s athleticism. If they want to add an offensive playmaker, Sternberger is the way to go. The Bengals don’t absolutely need to add a tight end Black Jonah Williams Jersey , but Tyler Eifert is a liability and C.J. Uzomah is a big drop-off. Sternberger gives them the flexibility to use EIfert more as a wide receiver or save his body by using him sparingly. Take a look at how Sternberger makes playsIt was predicted before the draft that Drew Lock could fall, but I don’t think anyone expected this. Lock has an excellent arm and a viable leadership presence on the field. Lockcould be a steal in Round 2 and a star in the NFL for years to come.Take a look.Who do you want the Bengals to target today? The Bengals surprised everyone with an early selection of a tight end. However, the pick makes a lot of sense once you examine it." />Skip to main contentclockmenumore-arrownoyesHorizontal - WhiteCincy Junglea Cincinnati Bengals communityLog In or Sign UpLog InSign UpFanpostsFanshotsSectionsLibraryBengalsOddsAboutMastheadCommunity GuidelinesStubHubMoreAll 322 blogs on Horizontal - WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections #BITESIZEFilm RoomRoster Transactions and ContractsOrange & Black InsiderSalary Cap And CBABreaking down the Bengals’ selection of Drew SampleNew,61commentsThe Bengals surprised everyone with an early selection of a tight end. However, the pick makes a lot of sense once you examine it. EDTShareTweetShareShareBreaking down the Bengals’ selection of Drew SampleIn some ways, folks expected the Bengals to trade back from their No. 42 spot in the second round. Many solid players were left on the board as their time approached, but some were plucked in picks right before theirs, so Zac Taylor and Co. decided to trade back and gain both a fourth-round and sixth-round selection. Cincinnati went with the big and athletic tight end, Drew Sample from the University of Washington. At 6’5” and 255 pounds, Sample should provide a great red zone weapon for Andy Dalton. What he brings to the BengalsSize: As mentioned above, Sample has good size for the position in the NFL. Dalton’s strengths are in the short and intermediate passing game. It’s a big reason as to why Tyler Eifert has had some big numbers with Dalton, when healthy. The Rams didn’t overly-use tight ends in their offensive system with Taylor, but they were part of the massive production. With Pittsburgh and Cleveland grabbing talented defenders in the early rounds, a big target in the passing game should negate some of those matchup issues. Upside: After the Bengals made the pick of Sample, NFL Network’s Daniel Jeremiah said that teams liked Sample more than what his production would indicate. Sample had just three touchdowns last year, but a lot of folks think his best football is in front of him. Cincinnati re-signed both Eifert and C.J. Uzomah to varying deals this offseason, but there are questions with both players. Sample is in the fold for the next four years, surpassing both of the deals by those veterans. Why the Bengals picked SampleRed zone effectiveness: Cincinnati’s offense needs to score more touchdowns Youth Jonah Williams Jersey , despite who is under center. When Eifert, Tyler Kroft and A.J. Green were injured last year, Cincinnati only had Uzomah as a big target in those critical short-yardage situations. Sample is huge, has a nice catch radius and most compare him to Jack Doyle. If Cincinnati gets that kind of production from him out of the second round, while still being able to spread the ball around to other weapons, they will be happy. Third downs: Given the massive amount of struggles by the Bengals’ defense last year, one would be inclined to think that the Bengals would have gone with defensive line or linebacker in the second round. However, part of the reason why Cincinnati’s defense struggled, aside from poor coaching and injuries, is the ineffectiveness of the 2018 offense. On many occasions, the Bengals’ offense forced the defense right back on the field after a stop because of ineffectiveness. Methodically moving the chains via big targets like Sample begins to balance the scales without even taking a defensive player. Uncertainty at the position group: Uzomah and Eifert are athletic and have had moments of greatness, but both have suffered injuries. And, when they’ve missed time, the entire team has felt the impact. While you don’t want to use a second-round pick on a third rotational option, it seems as if the Bengals have a solid plan for Sample. He is versatile and could even be used as a potential H-Back and nice outlet. Blocking: Even though the tight end position has evolved in recent years, blocking off of the edge is still at a premium. Sample is known as one of the best blockers in this year’s class.
