2019 NFL Draft: Mocking the 2nd round

The Bengals addressed the offensive line in the first round. What will they do in the second?

The first round of the draft is officially in the books, which means we continue to milk draft season for all it’s worth.

While most of their recent first-round picks haven’t produced like they should, second rounders have been good for the Bengals. Jessie Bates III, Joe Mixon, and Tyler Boyd have all become outstanding players, and each were taken in the second round. Hopefully Jonah Williams can reverse some of their misfortune in the first round.

With that in mind, the Bengals still have several holes in their squad that they have to fix. Should the Bengals go with a linebacker? Could the Bengals go with another offensive lineman? Will Zac Taylor focus on defense?

The first round came with plenty of surprises, with several first round-caliber players being left on the board on Friday. Will any of them fall to the Bengals?

Here is a mock of the second round, after the events of last night:

33. Arizona Cardinals - Jawaan Taylor, OT, Florida

34. Indianapolis Colts - D.K. Metcalf, WR, Ole Miss

35. Oakland Raiders - Greedy Williams, CB, LSU

36. San Francisco 49ers - A.J. Brown, WR, Ole Miss

37. Seattle Seahawks - Chauncey Gardner-Johnson, S, Florida

38. Jacksonville Jaguars - Dalton Risner, OT, Kansas State

39. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Byron Murphy, CB, Washington

40. Buffalo Bills - Eric McCoy, OL, Texas A&M

41. Denver Broncos - Drew Lock, QB, Missouri

42. Cincinnati Bengals - Mack Wilson, LB, Alabama

43. Detroit Lions - Rock Ya-Sin, CB, Temple

44. Green Bay Packers - Parris Campbell, WR, Ohio State

45. Los Angeles Rams - Dre’Mont Jones, DT, Ohio State

46. Indianapolis Colts - Nasir Adderley, S, Delaware

47. Carolina Panthers- Cody Ford, OT, Oklahoma

48: Miami Dolphins - Greg Little, OT, Ole Miss

49. Cleveland Browns - Juan Thornhill, S, Virginia

62. New Orleans Saints – Jace Sternberger, TE, Texas A&M

63. Kansas City Chiefs – Dawson Knox, TE, Ole Miss

It would be hard for the Bengals to screw this up, with so much talent left on the board. Let’s hope that they continue their streak of second round success.
