New, comments

The Bengals used their first seventh round selection on a quarterback in Toledo’s Logan Woodside.

This is the first of the Bengals three seventh round selections. They used the 31st pick in the Round 7 to select Toledo Rockets quarterback Logan Woodside.

They have spent most of Day 3 addressing the defense, so it feels like it was about time to go back to the offensive side of the ball. It isn’t the sexiest pick, but the Bengals really needed to add another quarterback to compete with Matt Barkley while Jeff Driskel recovers from his injury. Of course the Bengals lost AJ McCarron via free agency to the Bills, so the pick makes sense.

Woodside was a redshirt Senior, and his Junior year was where he really did his damage. He threw for over 4,000 yards and 45 touchdowns. During his time at Toledo he totaled 10,514 passing yards and 93 touchdowns. He completed 65.1 percent of his passes while only throwing 25 interceptions. He never had a single season with double digit interceptions. Woodside is a bit undersized at 6’1”, but overall he has the tools to be a very solid backup.

For what it’s worth, Land of 10 had Woodside ranked as the second-best quarterback left going into Day 2, so getting him late on Day 3 is a nice value pick.
