Michael Mayer NFL Draft photo
The Bengals went into the offseason looking to shore up their moribund offensive line, which they did in grand fashion, adding a raft of free agents (Alex Kappa, Ted Karras, La'el Collins). The team entered the 2022 Draft looking to get a jumpstart on what looks to be a wave of free agent defections in 2023, with both starting safeties looking for new employers, along with corners Eli Apple and Tre Flowers. The Draft added Dax Hill, Cam Taylor-Britt and Tycen Anderson to the fray, but the whole unit still looks weak for 2022, and even weaker for 2023.

There was an expectation that the Bengals would add a tight end in the draft, but did nothing more than add Hayden Hurst to the team on a 1-year deal.

With 4 CBs already off the boards, the Bengals will be looking hard at Notre Dame TE Michael Mayer, a guy who's already better than other stars at the position for the Irish, including Tyler Eifert, Cole Kmet and Kyle Rudolph. Nice company!

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.
