CINCINNATI — There's been plenty of debate about what the Bengals should do with the fifth pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
Former Cincinnati greats like Anthony Munoz, T.J. Houshmandzadeh and Tim McGee all think they should take Oregon offensive lineman Penei Sewell.
Meanwhile Cris Collinsworth and plenty of other analysts believe LSU wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase is the best option at No. 5.
Former NFL offensive lineman and film expert Brian Baldinger gave his thoughts on the fifth pick on Wednesdsay.
"You have to maximize that fifth selection in the draft," Baldinger said on NFL Network. " If Anthony Munoz was available, I'd say go grab him, but I don't believe he's there. I think you reunite him (Joe Burrow) with Ja'Marr Chase if he's there... Tyler Boyd in the slot. Tee Higgins looks like a really good No. 2 and go get yourself a dog at the 'X' position and let Ja'Marr Chase do what he did at LSU. I think he's gonna be a tantalizing figure in Cincinnati for a long time and he may help the protection because I think Joe Burrow's going to be able to get the ball out of his hands faster when the receivers get open quicker."
