CINCINNATI — The 2021 NFL Draft is just three days away and most people expect the Bengals to take one of two players: Ja'Marr Chase or Penei Sewell.
Both guys would make star quarterback Joe Burrow's life easier. Chase seems to be the favorite to be the fifth pick according to Sports Illustrated's Albert Breer.
"The Bengals sent personnel chief Duke Tobin to LSU’s pro day, and coach Zac Taylor’s only pro days this year were at Florida and Oregon," Breer wrote. "I also know, for the team, part of the equation has been what might be available for them at No. 38 and No. 69—in other words, if Chase is the pick, then what linemen will be there later, and vice versa? And one other thing that’s interesting, and I’ve heard this from a few people, is how people at LSU seem confident that Chase is going fifth. Right now, I’d go with Chase being picked here, while reserving the right to change my mind."

Breer's official mock draft will come out later this week, but it sounds like the Bengals' thinking lines up with the people that believe they can get quality offensive linemen on day two of the draft.
It's also interesting to hear that people at LSU are confident that Chase is going at No. 5.
The Bengals have a tough decision on their hands and only a few more days to make it. The 2021 NFL Draft starts on Thursday, April 29 at 8 p.m. ET.
