Cincinnati Bengals 2022 NFL Mock Draft Roundup, 2.0

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:

CBS Sports - Edwards (11/25)

23. Trent McDuffie, CB, Washington

Cincinnati upgrades its secondary with the selection of McDuffie. The Bengals have made strides this season but they need to keep adding blue chip players.

NBC Sports Chicago - Morgan (11/24)

23. Tyler Linderbaum, IOL, Iowa

Linderbaum is another Iowa product who plays with brilliant technique and efficient manipulation of every fundamental skill a lineman could possess. He moves with a balanced strength combining leverage and use of angles to overcome larger opponents. Linderbaum is arguably the most technically sound interior offensive lineman in this draft class. At the center position, he is hands down the best option and a potential day one starter.

New Year's resolution: Improve Joe Burrow's protection

Stop me if you've heard this before: The Bengals QB is at risk in the pocket a little more than anyone is probably comfortable with. Before being dissuaded from this resolution by any positive comments, let's take a look at the numbers. The Bengals rank 31st in pass block win rate, according to NFL Next Gen Stats. They were also 31st in 2019 and tied for 29th in 2020. Burrow has been contacted 89 times inside the pocket -- the third-highest total in the league, per ESPN Stats & Information research. The Bengals need improvement from current players and some offseason acquisitions to finally get the pass blocking somewhere near par. -- Ben Baby

NFL.com -- Rank: 5

The Bengals are the most fun team in the NFL right now and second place isn't even in the rearview. Led by Joe Burrow (971 yards passing over the past two weeks) and Ja'Marr Chase (a rookie-record 266 receiving yards in Week 17), Cincinnati has gone from AFC North afterthought to division champion and legit Super Bowl contender. "I said it in the preseason," Burrow said after beating the Chiefs. "We were talking about playoffs, and I said that if we were going to go to the playoffs, the easiest way to do that was to win the division.
