CINCINNATI —  The Bengals need more depth along the defensive line and ESPN's Jordan Reid has a good fit outside of the first round: Ohio State defensive tackle Michael Hall.

Hall is the consensus 69th-best player overall and eighth-best defensive tackle.

"With great first-step quickness, he would be an immediate answer at 3-technique," Reid wrote about the fit. "Hall's 2.5-second average time to getting first pressure was the eighth-quickest mark in the FBS last season."

Hall could be a nice value option at Pick 80 or 97 if he makes it that far in the 2024 NFL Draft.
