With the 65th overall pick of the 2020 NFL Draft, the Cincinnati Bengals have selected Wyoming Cowboys linebacker Logan Wilson.

After the Bengals addressed quarterback (Joe Burrow) and wide receiver (Tee Higgins) with their first two picks, they had a little more wiggle room to go with a multitude of positions in Round 3.

They opted to address arguably their biggest need at linebacker, and Wilson was easily one of the best backers on the board here.

This past season, Wilson was a First-Team All-Mountain West pick as a senior and was also named a Third-Team AP All-American after racking up 104 tackles, 9.5 tackles for loss, one sack, three interceptions and six pass breakups in 13 starts. He finished his career with a whopping 409 tackles, 34.5 tackles for loss, seven sacks, 10 interceptions, 14 pass deflections and five forced fumbles.

The Bengals’ remaining top draft needs are:
