Bengals strengthen defense in way-too-early 2022 mock draft

There are some unknowns about the Cincinnati Bengals’ weaknesses since we are so early into the NFL season. Who knows what happens from now until April in regards to Jessie Bates’ III contract situation, if Riley Reiff is re-signed, if Trae Waynes can finally stay healthy and play, or how the linebackers perform this season.

Any of these situations could open up a need for Cincinnati in next year’s drafts. With this in mind, we did a way-too-early Bengals 2022 mock draft using NFL Mock Draft Database’s mock draft simulator.

Sitting at 1-0, Cincinnati is currently holding a later pick than usual when compared to recent drafts.
