After addressing most of the preconceived needs on the first two nights, the Cincinnati Bengals went a bit of an unconventional route in their fourth round selection of University of Miami running back Mark Walton.

Unfortunately for Walton, he experienced injury issues for the Hurricanes in 2017. However, as a sophomore in 2016, Walton had 1,117 rushing yards with 14 touchdowns, showing his big-play capability.

Walton has limited experience as a kick returner, with most of the work being done in his freshman year. Even so, this might be a route the Bengals explore with their new No. 3 back.

On the NFL Network telecast, both Mike Mayock and Daniel Jeremiah loved the pick for the Bengals, while Mel Kiper, Jr. said Walton is a second round talent who fell because of injury issues. This is another move for a team looking for sizzle on offense.

What have others been saying about the pick?
