Video preview: Bengals late round draft choices and opinions

With so many picks, Cincinnati can afford to draft unproven players with high upside on Day 3 of the draft. We take a look at some projected late round guys the Bengals have shown interest in, and also offer our final takes on the Bengals’ draft options.

The Cincinnati Bengals have 11 draft picks in this year’s NFL Draft, which means the club can swing for the fences a few times, especially in the late rounds of the draft. In Rounds 4-7, the Bengals have eight picks, which is quite the haul. Should the Bengals go for high upside players late in the draft, or continue to provide depth and stability to an already talented roster?

In the following video preview, John Sheeran, Jordan Harris and Dr. Hodgie Smodgie discuss who they like among the players in whom the Bengals have shown interest.

John likes the idea of adding UTEP running back Aaron Jones, who he thinks would allow the offense to hum along without missing a beat when Giovani Bernard needs a breather. Jordan thinks Baylor wide receiver Ishmael Zamora could be a Kelvin Benjamin type player for Cincinnati, especially in and near the red zone. And Dr. Hodgie is intrigued by Tiffin quarterback Antonio Pipkin.

Let us know which players with whom the Bengals have reportedly been in touch, you like the most in the poll and comment section below.
