Chalk Talk: Breaking down Trae Waynes and Mackensie Alexander

A look at the film on new Bengals defensive backs Trae Waynes and Mackensie Alexander.

The Bengals signed not one, but two free agent cornerbacks from the Minnesota Vikings.

Trae Waynes is a former first-round pick who ran a 4.31 at the 2015 NFL Combine. He has the tools you look for in a cornerback, but has not yet met his potential in the NFL.

While Waynes plays mostly on the outside, Mackensie Alexander is primarily a slot cornerback, whom the Bengals also signed. This was a big need for the Bengals after losing Darqueze Dennard in free agency and releasing B.W. Webb.

In this video, I’ll take a look at some clips of these two players from the 2019 season and show you the good and the bad.

All of the film review content will be on SB Nation’s Cincy Jungle podcast channel, along with the other episodes of The Orange and Black Insider. New shows like the “Orange is the New Black” podcast from Ace Boogie and Zim WhoDey and “Sorry If I Spit When I Speak” from Dadio Makdook and Dr. Hodgie Smodgie have also been added to the channel’s audio slate.
