Taylor-Britt, weighing in at 5-foot-11 and 196 pounds, was the Bengals’ second-round pick by way of the Nebraska Cornhuskers. He played in 42 career games and racked up 140 tackles, nine tackles for loss, 2.5 sacks, six interceptions, 27 pass defenses, four forced fumbles, and two fumble recoveries.

Gunter, standing at 6-foot-4 and 258 pounds, was a seventh-round pick out of Coastal Carolina. He played in 48 games for the Chanticleers while amassing 174 tackles, 40 tackles for loss, 18 sacks, nine forced fumbles, one fumble recovery, one interception, and five total pass defenses.

Four of the Bengals’ six 2022 draft picks are now under contract as OTAs rev up. The only ones left are third-round Florida Gators defensive lineman Zacha Carter and fourth-round North Dakota State offensive lineman Cordell Volson.
