The Bengals could use a versatile piece to add to their cornerback room with William Jackson III and Mackensie Alexander only under contract for 2020. Someone that has the potential to play both inside and outside would be welcomed especially if they have the potential to be elite at either position. They also don’t need to be someone that needs to be ready to start year one.
This is where Auburn cornerback Noah Igbinoghene comes in as a player that fits all of the above criteria if the Bengals want to draft a cornerback. He has only been playing cornerback for two years, but he gives plenty of reason to be excited about his potential.
Giving him a season to sit and learn behind the two aforementioned cornerbacks would be an ideal situation. Of course there are concerns about him too so can he overcome some of the issues in his still fledgling profile. Let’s start by taking a look at his athleticism.
- Height: 5’10”
- Weight: 198
- 40-yard dash: 4.48
- Broad Jump: 128”
- Vertical Jump: 37”
