The Bengals seem to have plenty of options at 21 that could help fix some of the team’s issues.

NCAA Football: Notre Dame at Southern California Matt Cashore-USA TODAY Sports

The Bengals moved back to 21 from 12, and they picked up Cordy Glenn along the way.

They filled one of their biggest needs, and they also seem to have opened up their options in the first round. They went from either hoping for one of the blue chip prospects to fall to 12 or reaching for an offensive tackle. Now, they have plenty of options from interior offensive linemen to linebacker at 21.

CBS Sports: Mike McGlinchey, OL, Notre Dame.

Cincinnati acquired this pick in the Cordy Glenn trade, but they still need some help along the offensive line. McGlinchey doesn’t have as much hype as his line-mate Quenton Nelson, but he should be a strong option in the mid-to-late first.

Courier Journal: Isaiah Wynn, G/T, Georgia

The Bengals love University of Georgia players, and Wynn is a versatile offensive lineman who can help in a number of ways.

Chicago Suntimes: Rashaan Evans, Alabama LB

If they move on from Vontaze Burfict (and they should have, oh, four years ago), Evans is a great choice to take his place.

ESPN Mel Kiper: Kolton Miller, OT, UCLA

Miller impressed at the combine, running a 4.91 40 and jumping 10-foot-1 in the broad jump. Did I mention he’s 6-foot-8, 309 pounds? The Bengals traded for Cordy Glenn to be their left tackle, as Cedric Ogbuehi struggled in 2017. Miller could compete with Jake Fisher on the right side, giving Cincinnati upgraded depth along the line. The Bengals could also eye a linebacker here with Vontaze Burfict facing a suspension to start the season.

Cincinnati Enquirer: Billy Price, C, Ohio State

The Bengals have a bevy of options to supplement the offensive line, but I project the Buckeyes center to be the pick.

The hole at center is too large and the history of the Cowboys offensive line shining under the guidance of All-Pro, first-round center Travis Frederick keeps ringing true. The other center option here is James Daniels, of Iowa, and the Bengals can’t really go wrong either way. But Price feels like a better fit. His toughness and nastiness connects with traits new offensive line coach Frank Pollack has said he cherishes.

Which of these selections do you like the most for Cincinnati?
