CINCINNATI —  The Bengals have a clear need at defensive tackle entering the 2024 NFL Draft and PFF's Gordon McGuinness thinks they can go after McKinnley Jackson on Day Three.

He had the Texas A&M mauler as their best fit in the final four rounds.

"Jackson didn’t dominate in his senior season, but there were enough flashes to keep teams interested on Day Three," McGuinness wrote. "He finished 2023 with 15 tackles resulting in a defensive stop and earned three straight 70.0-plus PFF run-defense grades to close the campaign.

Jackson is the 14th-best defensive lineman on the consensus big board and 145th-best player overall.
