Film Room: D’Ante Smith’s demeanor is a welcome addition up front

While the national media and many Bengals fans pounded the table for the Bengals to select Penei Sewell in Round 1 of the 2021 NFL Draft, it is fair to say that just about everyone expected the Bengals to take a tackle in Round 2.

And they did... sort of.

The Bengals selected Clemson’s Jackson Carman, but Zac Taylor stayed true to what he said when the team signed veteran tackle Riley Reiff.

Reiff is this team’s right tackle. Carman will be a guard... for now.

That leaves the future of the right tackle position open.
