Selection Analysis
Pick #54
2018 Draft Comments
April 26, 2018

54   Cincinnati
Jessie Bates III
Wake Forrest

Ht/Wt: 6'2''  200

For a Bengals' team that needs help everywhere, a safety like Jessie Bates makes a lot of sense here. He had a strong Combine, but more imporantly has a high football IQ. He may not be the thumper that some of the previously selected safeties are, but his coverage skills are outstanding. He should be able to cover slot receivers AND play deep centerfield.

Grade: B
