So here it is, the culmination of way too many hours of film watching! I’ve scouted and ranked these players based purely on how I think they can help the Bengals based on what I see on the field. I didn’t take medical, off field or athletic testing into account, though I did drop Orlando Brown because his combine was historically bad. He’s a first rounder on tape.
You’ll see that I only scouted seven positions. Some of them are kind of nebulous, like DL vs DT/EDGE or OG/C. Obviously there are better players at other positions but I didn’t want to actually scout 200 some odd players. I also didn’t include safety or TE because frankly, I didn’t want to watch them. I got burnt out watching too many O-linemen.
I’ve also separated them into tiers. Some guys are basically the same talent wise but I have to put a number next to them. So that’s where the tiers come in to show where I think there’s a bit of a drop-off to the next prospect.
I’ll update this and reset the board after the first day so I hope you’ll use this to follow along for days 2 and 3 of the draft!
Here is the 2018 film only Bengals draft board.
