Pre-Free Agency Bengals Offensive Depth Chart

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

If there were a game being played today, what would the Bengals offensive depth chart look like?

Despite another first-round exit from the playoffs this past year, the Bengals 2014 roster will look mostly the same as it has in previous years. The Bengals have done a great job at extending their key players so they don't make it to free agency. On the offensive side of the ball, the Bengals have 10 of last year's 11 regular starters signed for at least one more season.

With the start of NFL free agency coming next week, the only offensive starter the Bengals stand to lose if left tackle Anthony Collins, and he only started in seven games last year, though the team wants him back as the full-time left tackle in '14.

With that being said, here's a look at how the offensive depth chart would look like if there were a game being played today:

*Recovering from ACL surgery

What really stands out is the lack of depth along the offensive line. With Collins and Dennis Rolland set to be free agents, the Bengals need to add some bodies along the line this offseason.

As of now, Pollak would be the starting left guard as Clint Boling recovers from a torn ACL, while the unproven Tanner Hawkinson would probably be the backup at both tackle spots.

The only other position that needs to be addressed is quarterback. It's unlikely the team is confident that either Zac Robinson or Greg McElroy are legitimate backups, so adding another QB to compete with them during camp needs to happen.

If that doesn't come in the first few weeks of free agency, it may be a sign the team has its eye on one or more QBs in this year's NFL Draft.
