Cincinnati Bengals 2023 NFL Mock Draft Roundup, 1.0

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2023 NFL Draft, we will update our Cincinnati Bengals Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the Cincinnati Bengals from several prominent sites and draft analysts.

The following are picks in recent mock drafts for the Bengals:

The Athletic - Dane Brugler (5/3)

22. Zacch Pickens, IDL, South Carolina

An athletic big man, Pickens isn't yet a finished product, but you don't need to squint to see why NFL scouts are intrigued by his talent. South Carolina has a solid track record of producing defensive linemen, and Pickens is next up in the hopper.

Draft Wire - Luke Easterling (5/3)

22. Isaiah Foskey, EDGE, Notre Dame

You can never have too many talented pass rushers, and Foskey's combination of size and a well-rounded skill set would be the perfect fit for Cincy's defense.

Fox Sports - Jason McIntyre (5/3)

23. Bijan Robinson, RB, Texas

The all-purpose back had 1,422 yards from scrimmage and 15 TDs last season, and even though I rarely advocate taking a running back in the first round, he's worth it.

2022 NFL Power Rankings: Cincinnati Bengals

Throughout the 2022 NFL season, we will compile a consensus NFL Power Rankings that averages the rankings of all 32 NFL teams.

Here is where the Cincinnati Bengals rank in terms of average, best and worst:

Below you will find a post-NFL Draft roundup for the Bengals in our consensus 2022 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 6

Player who benefited most from draft: LB Germaine Pratt

Pratt, a fourth-round pick in 2019, arguably had his best year in '21 and showed what he can do as an off-ball linebacker. He had the game-sealing interception in the AFC wild-card game over the Raiders, the team's first playoff win in 31 years. After hitting the linebacker class hard in 2020 with three draftees at the position, the Bengals didn't draft any this year. That's a great sign for Pratt, who is entering the final year of his rookie contract. While Cincinnati put itself in position to replace current starters with players from the '22 draft class, the lack of new linebackers could be a silent vote of confidence for Pratt. -- Ben Baby

NFL.com -- Rank: 6

Last year, the Bengals rolled the dice by passing on offensive line help at No. 5 overall in favor of Ja'Marr Chase, who made Duke Tobin and Co. look smart with a brilliant rookie season. Cincy used free agency to address -- aggressively -- its suspect offensive line, then used the draft to improve the back end of its defense, with the selections of defensive backs Daxton Hill and Cam Taylor-Britt. The Bengals are running their team with sound and direct logic -- they identify and attack deficiencies in an efficient manner. The 2022 draft was the latest example.
