The Bengals have signed four of the seven players they selected in the 2020 NFL Draft. Logan Wilson, Akeem Davis-Gaither, Hakeem Adeniji and Markus Bailey are all officially under contract for the next four years.

Wilson (6-2, 241) played linebacker from Wyoming and was drafted by the Bengals in the third round. After starting 52 games for the Cowboys, Wilson tallied over 400 tackles, over 30 tackles for loss, 10 interceptions in his career. Wilson was a Senior Bowl participant and notably ran a 4.63 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine.

Davis-Gaither (6-1, 224) played linebacker at Appalachian State and was drafted by the Bengals in the fourth round. He was a 30-game starter after spending his first season playing primarily special teams and amassed over 250 tackles, 28 tackles for loss, and 17 pass breakups. Davis-Gaither played in the Senior Bowl before attending the NFL Combine, where he was unable to perform in the on-field athleticism drills due to injury.

Adeniji (6-4, 302) played offensive tackle at Kansas and became the lone offensive lineman the Bengals drafted when he was selected in the sixth round. He started all 48 games Kansas played while he was with the team. Adeniji played in the Senior Bowl and ran a 5.17 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine.

Bailey (6-2, 235) played linebacker at Purdue and was drafted by the Bengals in the seventh round. Bailey started 40 games for the Boilermakers and recorded over 300 tackles to go with a combined 19 pass breakups and interceptions despite suffering two season-ending ACL injuries. He started all 38 games between his two injuries.

Joe Burrow, Tee Higgins, and Khalid Kareem are the remaining Bengals draft picks that have yet to sign with the team.
