CINCINNATI — The Bengals may take a cornerback in the first round of the 2022 NFL Draft, but what if Clemson star Andrew Booth and Florida defensive back Kaiir Elam are already off the board? 

Cincinnati is picking 31st this year, which makes it challenging to predict what prospects are going to be available at the end of round one. 

The Bengals could opt to sign a veteran cornerback between now and the draft. That way they don't feel compelled to reach on a player to fill a need. 

Here are six of the top free agent cornerbacks that could make sense for Cincinnati in free agency:
