2018 NFL Draft: Do you approve of the Bengals selecting Billy Price in Round 1

Let your voice be heard on the Bengals’ first round pick, OSU center Billy Price!

NCAA Football: Cotton Bowl-Ohio State vs Southern California Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

The Bengals have selected Ohio State center Billy Price in Round 1 of the 2018 NFL Draft.

The pick is not a surprise and though there was tons of Frank Ragnow hype in the last few days, I do believe Price was the Bengals’ No. 1 choice among the center prospects.

The Bengals fell in love with Price prior to his NFL Scouting Combine pectoral injury, but the team did not let the injury detour them from selecting the Ohio State center. Price’s doctor has said he will be medically cleared by June and ready for training camp in late July.

Price played an impressive 55 straight games at OSU and has experience at guard in addition to center. Prior to the combine, he had been injury-free in college.

Are you a fan of this pick for Cincinnati? With Ragnow off-the-board, the Bengals knew they still needed a center and went after Price. The Bengals didn’t want to take a chance on waiting until Round 2 to fill their biggest need and the hope is Price is the long-term answer at the position for Cincinnati. It’s unfortunate it’s another injured player but I’m confident he’ll be healthy soon.

Also, I LOVE THIS QUOTE, SO SO SO MUCH!
