Draft Grade: Mostly Hits
The Bengals, starting last year and through this draft should have the pieces in place to put together a solid offensive line with the extra bonus of an excellent blocking tight end. That is a long time coming.
They had two other major questions: can they fix their defense without overhauling their roster, and who will be the QB moving forward? Pratt and Wren are both under-rated prospects and both could see a lot of time this year. They both jump out on tape.
Finley is probably the most pro-ready QB in this draft, and the Bengals showed a lot of interest in him. This could be a real QB competition this fall. The Bengals won’t get hurt financially if they make a change there.
They also got two high ceiling RBs late in the draft. Williams and Anderson both fell in the draft, and they got them both at a great value.
