2022 NFL Draft Recap: Cincinnati Bengals


The 2022 NFL Draft has concluded after months of scrutiny about these prospects, potential landing spots, team and scheme fits, and so on. Now we get to start the entire process all over again now that we have team landing spots for these college prospects.

Today, we tackle the Cincinnati Bengals and how they fared in the 2022 NFL Draft.

Cincinnati's 2022 NFL Draft selections:

  • Round 1 (31): Daxton Hill, S, Michigan
  • Round 2 (60): Cam Taylor-Britt, CB, Nebraska
  • Round 3 (95): Zachary Carter, DE, Florida
  • Round 4 (136): Cordell Volson, T/G, North Dakota St.
  • Round 5 (166): Tycen Anderson, S, Toledo
  • Round 7 (252): Jeffrey Gunter, EDGE, Coastal Carolina

 

The 2022 Fantasy Impact:

Clearly, the Bengals thought that their skill-position group was just fine after their 2021 season that saw them fall in the Super Bowl. At the very least, the team is finally getting an indoor practice facility!

While the Bengals bring in a bunch of help on the offensive line in the form of La'el Collins, Ted Karras, and Alex Cappa. the team did spend a fourth-round selection on North Dakota State's Cordell Volson. He's a huge 6-foot-6 lineman who played tackle and guard for the Bison but will likely slide inside at guard in the NFL. His footwork is not great and he doesn't have the backpedal and short-area quickness to handle edge rushers which explains his slide to Day 3. However, as a run-blocker, he's already better than average player that could find himself as a rotation piece or spot starter.
