Having been a long suffering Bengal fan since the early '80s, it has long been a tradition (or.. compulsion?) to begin looking at the draft well before the season has officially ended. So, for me its a hard habit to break.
But not to put put the whammy on the Bengal's push to the playoffs (should you put credence into that sort of thing), I'd like to pick the brains of the CJ faithful: What position do you think the Bengals should be putting on the top of their needs board?
For me, the recent stretch without the services of Ja' Marr Chase, I feel like the Chase/Sewell debate may take on a different light. I'd never suggest that the Bengals should have ever redraft to take Sewell, but seeing how effective Burrow has been in making the most of whomever is on the field at the WR position, I'm inclined to suggest O-Line to be at the top of our board. This would help make sure we have adequate talent to keep Joe upright and healthy for years to come.
On the flip side, as the O-Line has gelled together using the best available pieces in free agency, could this be the real area the team should be investing in the future and allow the draft to offer something else?
I'll hang up and listen to your answers off the air.
