Lou Anarumo Explains What Bengals Are Looking For at Cornerback in 2022 NFL Draft

Cincinnati is expected to add to its' secondary.

CINCINNATI — The Bengals are expected to take a cornerback early in the 2022 NFL Draft. 

Guys like Kaiir Elam, Andrew Booth Jr., Kyler Gordon and Cam Taylor-Britt have all been linked to the Bengals. 

What exactly are they looking for in a cornerback? 

"A guy with length, a guy with speed, can change direction, go get the ball—those are some of the qualities you look for, especially higher in the draft," Bengals defensive coordinator Lou Anarumo said on Tuesday. "It's a matter of just flat-out long speed and being able to change direction quickly and then having the ball skills."

Chidobe Awuzie and Mike Hilton played well in their first year with the team. Both guys will start in 2022. The Bengals also re-signed Eli Apple and Tre Flowers in free agency.

Even with a quartet they trust, the Bengals plan to address the position. 

"In my mind, yeah," Anarumo said when asked if addressing cornerback was a priority. "Always at each position you want to add quality depth. I think at that position for sure."
