What Mel Kiper projected for Bengals in 2-round mock draft

What Mel Kiper projected for Bengals in 2-round mock draft

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports Some combination of OL-WR would be ideal for the Bengals’ first two picks in the NFL Draft. Ja’Marr Chase could be a generational talent, but Penei Sewell is in that same boat. Both should be available at No. 5 when the Cincinnati Bengals are on the clock. With a trio of quarterbacks like taken off the board to kick off the draft, the Atlanta Falcons are expected to go with tight end Kyle Pitts, filling a huge hole for them. That would leave Cincinnati with a win-win scenario. However, it’s a position that certainly won’t leave...

The Bengals claimed one of Joe Burrow’s favorite targets from LSU. Bengals Founder Paul Brown Still Abounds At PBSPaul Brown never stepped foot in Paul Brown Stadium, yet his fingerprints are all over the place just like they are in every NFL yard.

Ken Riley is a huge reason we have a Ring of Honor

Photo by George Gojkovich/ The passing of Riley was a wakeup call for Cincinnati’s front office. Bengals fans finally got what they’ve wanted for years, maybe decades: a Ring of Honor. We all know Cincinnati’s players aren’t going to get the love they deserve from national media or Hall of Fame voters. So at least the franchise can honor them. But the Ring of Honor never happened until something terrible happened: Bengals great Ken Riley, a cornerback on the team for 15 years, passed away last June. Not only was he not inducted into the Hall of Fame, despite...

Making the case for Ja’Marr Chase

Ja’Marr Chase | SCOTT CLAUSE/USA TODAY Network, USA TODAY NETWORK via Imagn Content Services, LLC Anecdotes of Chase’s leadership and preparation strengthen his case to be the Bengals’ fifth-overall pick. And the debate rages on. Who should the Bengals choose with the No. 5 selection in the 2021 NFL Draft? Oregon tackle Penei Sewell or former LSU receiver Ja’Marr Chase? Former NFL head coach Jim Mora, Jr. recently weighed in on the conversation, and threw his weight behind the 6-1, 201-pound Chase, the former college teammate of current Bengals’ quarterback...

Chalk Talk: Joe Burrow vs. Ravens

Photo by Scott Taetsch/ A look at key plays from Burrow’s Week 5 matchup with Baltimore. In the Cincinnati Bengals’ Week 5 matchup against the Baltimore Ravens, Joe Burrow saw a top-level NFL defense for the first time. Baltimore defensive coordinator Wink Martindale sent a lot of looks at Burrow that he was seeing for the first time. This caused the rookie quarterback a lot of problems, but you could see his growth as the game went on. 1st Clip Here, Burrow recognizes that the Ravens are sending more than the protection can handle, but it is too late to audible....

Photo by Rich Graessle/Icon Sportswire via The Bengals seem to be in an envious position with the fifth overall pick. Hobson's Choice: Questions about the Bengals new uniforms and drafting at No. 5The Bengals conducted their preliminary draft meetings last month, then went on "pro day palooza" over the past month. This week, they will begin their final draft meetings and my sense is the board could change more than it ever has this late in the game because the recent pro days were so important without a scouting combine.

Bengals get impact OL and WR in CBS Sports 2-round mock draft

Troy Wayrynen-USA TODAY Sports The Bengals get their guy, Penei Sewell, with the No. 5 overall pick, but still manage to add a high-impact receiver. The Cincinnati Bengals, for now, are a wild card at No. 5. It’s a split vote in the Queen City as many want the team to help protect Joe Burrow, but many also see a receiver already with a connection with Burrow that could be both on the board at No. 5, and also the most-talented receiver to come to Cincinnati since A.J. Green. After being knocked out by a brutal blow against the Washington Football Team in Week 11,...

Top NFL evaluator says Ja’Marr Chase is “best WR prospect since Julio”

Pool Photo-USA TODAY Sports Chase should be there at No. 5, but that doesn’t mean the Bengals will take the young stud. Analysts seem split on who the Cincinnati Bengals should take at No. 5. With many thinking tackle Penei Sewell is a lock for a team that is in desperate need of offensive line help, there’s no denying it’d be tough to pass of LSU’s Ja’Marr Chase or Florida’s Kyle Pitts. With the connection that Chase and starting quarterback Joe Burrow already have, the Bengals will have an increasingly tough decision if he’s on the board. However, it...

Mike Brown and Elizibeth Blackburn reveal part of the motivation to finally put a Ring of Honor up in Paul Brow stadium. The Cincinnati Bengals finally revealed their plans to establish a Ring of Honor for their former players. The inaugural group will include two legends that are practically synonymous with football in Cincinnati with Paul Brown and Anthony Munoz, but Mike Brown helps shed some light on a huge reason the franchise has finally begun to honor their former legends. “The Hall of Fame has chosen to ignore our players to a high degree and this is a way to honor...

Giovani Bernard | Sam Greene/The Enquirer via Imagn Content Services, LLC Cincinnati is losing a leader, on the field and off Giovani Bernard is the epitome of class. Bernard, the 2nd-round selection of the Cincinnati Bengals in the 2013 NFL Draft, was released Wednesday. Unlike a couple of ex-teammates who were also released within the past couple of months, Bernard had nothing but good things to say about his home for the past eight seasons. According to reports, the Bengals had asked Bernard to take a pay cut in order to stay with the team. When the two sides were...
