Blake's Take: Bengals Address Major Needs in Full 7-Round Mock Draft

Cincinnati waits on offensive line help following free agency additions.

Going into this offseason, you saw many Bengals mock drafts focusing on the offensive line. With the signings of Alex Cappa, Ted Karras, and star right tackle La’el Collins, the Bengals have given themselves some flexibility in this draft.

Cincinnati isn’t forced to take offensive line in the first round anymore, which allows them to take the best player available, which is likely to be another position of need such as cornerback or defensive tackle. 

Here’s my first seven round mock draft following the offensive line overhaul in free agency:
