The Bengals surprised a lot of people Week 1 by securing an overtime victory over the Minnesota Vikings. They fell, however, in Week 2 to the Chicago Bears. First-round rookie receiver Ja'Marr Chase has impressed so far and currently leads the team in receving yards. Young offensive lineman Jackson Carman is also slated to be a big part of this offense moving forward. The offensive line woes continue as Quarterback Joe Burrow has already been sacked nine times in 2021. Taking an Offensive Tackle could very well be the pick here but DeMarvin Leal provides elite talent along the defensive trenches. Larry Ogunjobi, BJ Hill, and Josh Tupou are all a part of the DL rotation but all three are also set to become free agents in 2022.

Leal is a 6'4, 290-pound junior Defensive Tackle for Texas A&M and has been earning significan playing time since hi 2019 freshman season. He has the ability to get to the quarterback but relies more so on his run-stopping prowess to make impacts. A&M utilize Leal's rare attribtutes all along the defensive line. Leal could stand to add some bulk if he is to become a true interior defensive lineman but if he lands in Cincy he could be given the Chris Jones treatment.

BENGALS HISTORICAL DRAFT PICKS

Reach/Value (R/V) Explained
The difference between where a player is selected in the NFL draft versus where the player was listed on the final Drafttek Big Board for the season in question.
Example: A player who was listed at #50 on the Big Board and was selected at #35 will be a "Reach" of -15. Alternately, a player listed at #35 on the Big Board who was selected at #50 is a +15 "Value".

Simply put: a positive number is a Value pick, a negative number is a Reach.
