Social media reaction to Bengals selecting Jordan Willis in Round 3 of 2017 NFL Draft

The Bengals just made a great pick in selecting Jordan Willis out of Kansas State. He was thought to be a first round pick by many analysts.

Did the Cincinnati Bengals just make the best pick of the 2017 NFL Draft in Round 3? Many people are currently saying as much after the team selected Kansas State defensive end Jordan Willis with the No. 73 overall pick in the draft.

Willis will aid the Bengals’ pass rushing woes after registering 11.5 sacks in his senior season of college. That, after an 8.5 sack junior year and 4.5 sack sophomore year. Willis is a serious threat as an edge rusher and can help the Bengals who ranked 19th in the NFL in sacks last season.

Pro Football Focus’ Steve Palazzolo Tweeted saying the Bengals have added three first round talents with their first three picks, which is as much as any team could hope for in the draft. In Mike Mayock’s only mock draft of 2017, released on Wednesday night, he had Willis going in Round 1 to the Steelers.

Here are the social media reactions to the Bengals’ selection of Jordan Willis, which has been very well received.

The Bengals now have a John, Joe and Jordan from the first three rounds.
