CINCINNATI — The Bengals need to add at least one downfield threat on offense this offseason to make life easier for Joe Burrow.
The draft pool is going to be more shallow than most expected.
Ohio State speedster Chris Olave decided to return to school for his senior season.
"There are many great memories, but we're not done yet," Olave tweeted. "I'll be returning for my senior year at Ohio State."
Olave led the Buckeyes in receptions (50), receiving yards (729) and receiving touchdowns (7) in 2020.
Most draft analyst expected the 20-year-old to be drafted at the end of the first round. Some thought he would fall to the second round, but he was considered a consensus top 40 pick.
That makes the Bengals' chances of landing a deep threat in the second round less likely. Cincinnati has the fifth and 37th overall picks.
The Bengals could have a shot at LSU star Ja'Marr Chase or Heisman Trophy winner DeVonta Smith with the fifth pick.
A speedster like Kadarius Toney from Florida could fall to them in the second round. Like Olave, he's expected to be picked in the top-40.
