In this story:

CINCINNATI — The Bengals could target Georgia offensive tackle Amarius Mims or LSU wide receiver Brian Thomas in the first round of the 2024 NFL Draft on Thursday night.

According to Jordan Schultz of Bleacher Report, both prospects could be long gone.

"They won't be around very long come Thursday. Teams love these dudes," Schultz tweeted.

It would be surprising if the Bengals were targeting Thomas with the No. 18 pick. He could be a trade down candidate, but Mims is a true contender for pick 18.

Thomas isn't on my final top 10 big board for the Bengals, but Mims made the cut. Check out where Mims is ranked on our big board here.
