Cincinnati Bengals 2022 NFL Mock Draft Roundup, 1.0

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2022 NFL Draft, we will update our Cincinnati Bengals Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the Cincinnati Bengals from several prominent sites and draft analysts.

The following are picks in recent mock drafts for the Bengals:

EDSFootball - Hanson (5/10)

3. Kayvon Thibodeaux, EDGE, Oregon

Arguably the top college football recruit in 2019, Thibodeaux has lived up to the hype so far with 12 sacks and 23.5 tackles for loss over 21 games in his first two seasons. In a pair of Pac-12 Championship Games, he's been virtually unblockable -- 18 QB pressures, 4.5 TFLs and 3.5 sacks in those two games combined.

Current Oregon (and former Texas A&M) DC Tim DeRuyter has compared Thibodeaux's explosiveness to that of Von Miller, one of DeRuyter's former players, as he said that Kayvon is "probably the first person that I've seen in a while who has that explosiveness off the edge like Von" [Miller].

The Bengals (17) ranked last in the NFL in sacks last season. Even though they signed Trey Hendrickson to a four-year deal, Carl Lawson (team-high 5.5 sacks) departed via free agency.

Touchdown Wire - Schofield (5/7)

4. Evan Neal, OT, Alabama

The Cincinnati Bengals surprised some -- including this writer -- when they passed on Penei Sewell and drafted Ja'Marr Chase at the start of the 2021 NFL draft. If they are still picking near the top of the board, you might think that the organization goes in a different direction, looking to add to the offensive line instead. Alabama tackle Evan Neal looks like he could be the next in a long line of Crimson Tide offensive linemen to make his way into the first round.

PFF - Renner (5/7)

4. Kayvon Thibodeaux, EDGE, Oregon

Thibodeaux put up 34 pressures in only seven games this past season, with a ridiculous 12 coming against USC in the 2020 Pac-12 Championship Game. He's an ironman for the Ducks and averaged just over 67 snaps a game last year. He's got the ideal frame for the edge, too, at 6-foot-5, 250 pounds.

2021 NFL Power Rankings: Cincinnati Bengals

Here is where the Cincinnati Bengals rank in terms of average, best and worst:

Below you will find a post-draft roundup for the Bengals in our consensus 2021 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 29

Player who benefited most from draft: QB Joe Burrow

While the former No. 1 overall pick didn't force his opinion on Cincinnati's front office, Burrow made it known he enjoyed the idea of playing with WR Ja'Marr Chase again. And sure enough, the Bengals selected Burrow's former LSU teammate with the fifth overall pick in this year's draft. Chase gives Burrow another big playmaker who will be asked to beat defenders early and often. Burrow also gained a projected starting right guard in Clemson's Jackson Carman. The Bengals clearly indicated they're backing their young quarterback. -- Ben Baby

NFL.com -- Rank: 29

Prized offensive lineman Penei Sewell still profiled as the sensible choice for a Bengals team that failed to adequately protect Joe Burrow in a rookie year that ended with a horrible knee injury. But it's hard to get too down on Cincinnati when it came out of Thursday night with LSU wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase, who could put up video game numbers for the next decade with a healthy Burrow. The Bengals played a much more entertaining brand of football in 2020 before Burrow went down, but big plays were noticeably absent; according to Next Gen Stats, Cincinnati had just 15 completions of 20 or more air yards, ranking 26th in the NFL. That's about to change with Chase in the building.
