Yeah I was happy with the pick. The need help at safety and it sound like this guy has some ball skills which they need in the secondary.

Cool to see a local kid become a Bengal. Happy with the picks considering they got 2 front 7 players and what hopefully will be a ball hawk safety. Hopefully he improves his alleged poor tackling

I really like what they did. Jefferson is a stud, not sure what the knock on him was that kept him out of the first round.

The safety from WF was a good pick. He’s only second to Fitzpatrick in terms of cover and ball skills. I don’t love the third round picks, but the Bengals historically draft better in rounds 3 and 4 than they do rounds 1 and 2, so hoping they continue that trend.

Wouldn’t be a bad idea to draft a QB late. Maybe Falk or Kyle Allen.

Yeah, at this point it does not appear to be a great draft. Too many late round picks that are just random guys. Should have traded up.

NFL.com liked it:

Day 1 grade: B
Day 2 grade: A
Day 3 grade: A
Overall grade: B+
The skinny: Picking up Cordy Glenn from the Bills for a move down of 10 spots in the first round will help their offensive line, so that needs to be considered here. Selecting Price, a center/guard, continues the Bengals' effort to get stronger up front, though I think there could have been more of a difference-maker selected here. The Bengals could have waited and landed a very good interior offensive lineman in the second or third round. The Bengals picked up an extra third-round pick by moving down a few spots in Round 2. Their back-to-back third-rounders -- Hubbard and Jefferson -- beef up their front seven. The games of both guys weren't loved by scouts, but in the third round, these picks make sense. Jefferson could be a particularly good value if everything comes together as he matures. Walton is a well-rounded offensive weapon, presenting good value in the fourth round. I've been a fan of Harris since the fall. I suspect he'll be a very good reserve corner in time. Brown met a need to improve the depth on the defensive line, and could be a steal if he consistently applies his quickness and strength. Woodside, Taylor, and Tate were all excellent picks late in the draft, though I thought they might pick a tight end since Tyler Eifert has had injury issues.

Highly athletic, never quite put it together at LB. Similar to Baker from OSU.

I like taking a flier on Flowers and I've read good things about Henderson. I'm optimistic about the Miami RB. Phillips, if nothing else, should be the return man but he had some good tape against the P5 teams he played.

It’s a solid draft, but definitely not an exciting one for a fan base to latch on to.

Considering the Bengals got a starting Left Tackle and A starting Center with the 12th pick and got 2 solid guys with the 46th pick I'd say the draft looks pretty good on paper.

Could be Gio's replacement in a couple of years.

Very possibly the worst 1st round pick in Bengals' history.

Interesting article, entitled "No. 1 Bengals draft bust of all-time: Akili Smith"- https://www.cincyjungle.com/2015/4/3...me-akili-smith


My favorite part- "Before the draft, New Orleans head coach Mike Ditka offered the Bengals nine draft picks for the 1999 and 2000 NFL Drafts, hoping to move up and draft Ricky Williams.

The Bengals, feeling that they were obviously on the short end of the one-sided deal, refused. So with the third overall selection in the 1999 NFL Draft, the Cincinnati Bengals selected Oregon quarterback Akili Smith."
