When the Cincinnati Bengals make their first pick of the 2022 NFL Draft, they're going to be in an unfamiliar position: the bottom of the first round. This draft will mark the first time since 1989 that the Bengals will be making their first pick outside of the top-30, which is fitting, because the 1989 draft was also the last time the Bengals were coming off a Super Bowl season. With the Bengals picking so low this year, there's a lot less pressure on them. When you're picking in the top five -- like the Bengals did last year -- you need to hit a home run with the pick if you want to get things turned around quickly, and the Bengals did that when they selected Ja'Marr Chase.
