I got a feeling they trade back tonight

Here’s my pointless prediction for the 31st pick tonight: Bengals get to pick #31 and there are multiple guys they would consider at #31 available - Kaiir Elam, Boye Mafe, Kyler Gordon, Travis Jones, Kenyon Green, etc.

Also, a QB-needy team with multiple 2nd round picks is looking to trade up to #31 to get a quarterback with a 5th year option contract. Bengals end up trading #31 and net an early-mid 2nd rounder, a 4th rounder, and a 5th rounder.

Teams to look for in this situation? Seattle with picks #40 and #41, and Atlanta with picks #43 and #58. I think both teams pass on QB with their top 10 picks and look to trade back into the 1st, ahead of Detroit, to get a QB.

It wouldn’t shock me if the Bengals’ first pick this year is #40 or #43.
