The third day of the drat was another good one for the Bengals. They added some depth at real areas of need. Whether it was linebacker, offensive line or on the edge, the Bengals added a player they hope can be a contributor at some point soon.

How did twitter react to the picks though?

Reactions to Akeem Davis-Gaither

This may have been one of the best value picks for Cincinnati. At this point they had three athletic linebackers capable of running around the field and being great in coverage. There are some injury concerns with Davis-Gaither, but if he can stay healthy there is no doubt that he will terrorize opposing offenses for years to come.

Reactions to Khalid Kareem

Many fans expected offensive line to be the pick here, but the Bengals took a guy to add depth to their edge. He may not be flashy, but he is a guy who can play on early downs against the run really well. He still will have plenty of time to learn a few more pass rushing moves at the next level as well.

Reactions to Hakeem Adeniji

Adeniji may end up being fans favorite pick as the team finally addressed their offensive line. It took until the sixth round to actually do it, but they ended up with quite the value. He isn’t as huge of a steal as some of Cincinnati’s picks, but there is a chance we see him compete for a starting job here soon.

Reactions to Markus Bailey

The Bengals may not have addressed the offensive line as much as many fans would’ve liked, but they really solidified their linebacker position for years to come. They finished the draft by taking their third linebacker, and Bailey could end up being a valuable depth player. He fell because of injury, but he looks like a guy who should’ve gone much sooner. If he is able to stay healthy it could be huge for Cincinnati.
