The Bengals most agree had a very strong 2016 NFL Draft, we have seen grades from B- to A+ regularly. Going into the draft most Bengal's fans was wanting a WR to fill the void left by Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu, which for sure made sense. The Bengals, known for taking the best talent on the board and not reaching did just that by selecting CB William Jackson with the 24th overall pick in the 1st round. Stealing Jackson one pick before the CB-needy Steelers hit the clock was a bonus that Bengals fans will always remember if Jackson lives up to his talent on the field.

In the 2nd round the Bengals drafted the WR most assumed was coming in round 1. Tyler Boyd may not be a superstar play maker for the Bengals, but he's the dependable wide out the team needs opposite A.J. Green. He's going to be a dependable pass catcher for Andy Dalton and could quickly become a favorite target of Dalton due to the many ways he can excel with the football. Landing FA Brandon LaFell from the Patriots should take some pressure off of Boyd in his rookie year, this kid has a chance to be better than Marvin Jones which would help the Bengals take the step needed to be considered elite in the NFL.

The Bengals seemed to be in the right place at the right time allot in this draft. Talent you saw slip and slip, then the Bengals got on the clock and took advantage. Andrew Billings is a prime example of a value pick. There was rumors of the Bengals taking Billings as high as the 2nd round. He is considered a 1st round talent, strong as an ox and known for stopping the run. Billings will be a welcomed edition to the Bengals defense. In the 5th round the Bengals also scored great value with Christian Westerman. Westerman is a powerhouse blocker up front that could be a staple on the offensive line for years to come.

  • Sixth-round WR Cody Core is a name to remember from Cincinnati’s picks. He was the Robin to Laquon Treadwell’s Batman at Ole Miss but can be a big-play threat in his own right
