Stripe Hype

● By Riley Thomas
The Cincinnati Bengals have continuously had high first-round draft picks in recent seasons as they have struggled to win. This season, things are changing for the Who Dey faithful as the Bengals have looked like one of the better teams in the NFL sitting at 4-2. As a result, Cincy currently holds a pick that is much later than usual at pick 29. Technically Cincinnati sits in second in the AFC ahead of their divisional battle with the Ravens. Now, will the stripes really make an AFC Championship and pick this late? Probably not, but who knows. With such a late pick, where the Bengals would decide to go is quite interesting. Some clear needs for Cincy as of now are bettering their offensive line and adding more depth at cornerback. Here’s what Cincinnati picked in a four-round mock draft, which was done through Pro Football Network’s draft simulator.
