Bengals Offensive Depth Chart: Pre-Draft Projections and Analysis

We take a look at the offensive depth chart before the NFL Draft reshapes it.

The Bengals have made it to four straight playoffs in large part due to their ability to keep their best players from leaving the team.

That was the case again this offseason. With only Clint Boling as a key starter hitting the market, it was fairly easy for Cincinnati to get a deal done for him.

With Boling back, the entire starting offense should remain intact. With that said, here's a projection of what the offensive depth chart would look like if a game was being played today:







A.J. Green

Marvin Jones

James Wright


Andrew Whitworth

Tanner Hawkinson


Clint Boling

Trey Hopkins

Dan France


Russell Bodine

T.J. Johnson


Kevin Zeitler

Mike Pollak


Andre Smith

Eric Winston


Tyler Eifert

Kevin Brock


Ryan Hewitt


Mohamed Sanu

Denarius Moore

Brandon Tate

Cobi Hamilton


Andy Dalton

AJ McCarron


Jeremy Hill

Giovani Bernard

Rex Burkhead

James Wilder Jr.

*Jermaine Gresham still hasn't being brought back, which means Tyler Eifert is the full-time TE.

*Kevin Brock may be the primary blocking TE, but if Eifert gets injured, Ryan Hewitt likely goes from fullback to No. 1 TE.

*Marvin Jones being healthy means Mohamed Sanu goes to the slot. James Wright is the No. 4 WR after a promising rookie season that was cut short by injures.

*The only difference on the offensive line is a healthy Trey Hopkins replaces Mike Pollak as the backup guard.

*Denarius Moore may be ahead of Tate in terms of receivers, but Tate's return abilities give him a better chance of making the final roster, for now at least.

*Offensive tackle is dangerously thin at the moment. If either Andre Smith or Andrew Whitworth go down, you're looking at Eric Winston and/or Tanner Hawkinson as the starting tackles. That's why Cincinnati is expected to draft a tackle in the first round.
