Bengals No. 9 In ESPN Post-Draft Power Rankings

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

The Bengals moved up a notch following the draft in ESPN's latest power rankings.

The Bengals moved up one notch from No. 10 to No. 9 in ESPN's post-draft power rankings. We realize that power rankings that run long before the preseason even begin are pointless, but the Bengals are in the top-10 so whatever.

The Bengals added some toughness by signing linebacker James Harrison before the draft and brought more big-play potential by using their first two picks on tight end Tyler Eifert and running back Giovani Bernard. (Hensley)

The Bengals did have another great draft and with the additions of Harrison and the re-signing of Andre Smith, they're heading into the dead zone with a fairly complete team. So, it's not surprising that the Bengals are sitting at No. 9.

As for the rest of the division, the Ravens sit at No. 8 just in front of the Bengals, the Steelers are at No. 16 and the Browns come in last place at No. 28.

Power rankings really don't mean anything until halfway through the season, if they ever do at all. However, it's nice to see the Bengals are getting some much deserved recognition for what they've done this offseason.
