CINCINNATI — The Bengals made a flurry of moves this offseason. They signed guys like Trey Hendrickson, Riley Reiff and Mike Hilton. They also drafted wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase with the fifth overall pick.
Despite adding talent in key areas to a team that already has promising young stars like Joe Burrow, Jessie Bates and Joe Mixon, the Bengals were 24th in ESPN's latest roster rankings.
They believe the Bengals' trio of starting wide receivers—Chase, Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd—is their biggest strength.
There's also plenty of concern about the offensive line.
"The Bengals' offensive line should be better in 2021 than it was last season. But that isn't a high bar to clear. There are still legitimate reasons for concern on the interior offensive line in Cincinnati," Ben Linsey wrote. "Second-round rookie Jackson Carman, Quinton Spain, Xavier Su'a-Filo and Michael Jordan are among the team's top options at guard. The last three combined for a 55.7 PFF grade last season with the Bengals, while Carman will be transitioning from left tackle at Clemson to right guard in the NFL."
The Browns (third), Ravens (fifth) and Steelers (16th) were all ranked ahead of the Bengals.
