In the middle of the NFL's free agency frenzy, Bengals.com continues to take a look at which players the various experts believe will land in Cincinnati.
LSU quarterback Joe Burrow and Ohio State edge rusher Chase Young highlight the top, but offensive linemen, wide receivers and linebackers are featured in the later rounds.
ROUND ONE Joe Burrow - QB, LSU
Charley Casserly- NFL.com
Analysis: "The Bengals, going all the way back to the Paul Brown days, have always believed in the need for a franchise quarterback. The reigning Heisman Trophy winner becomes the centerpiece in Cincinnati."
Bucky Brooks - NFL.com
Analysis: "The Bengals can't resist the opportunity to take an Ohio native as their QB1 to build around."
Charles Davis - NFL.com
Analysis: "Simply phenomenal 2019 season. The ability to make tremendous second- and third-reaction plays sends an Ohio kid back home."
Daniel Jeremiah - NFL.com
Analysis: "When it's all said and done, I don't foresee any drama here. The Bengals land their franchise QB."
Chad Reuter - NFL.com
Analysis: "Burrow told reporters at the combine that he will play for whoever drafts him, knocking down the talk that he'd refuse to suit up for the Bengals."
Mel Kiper Jr. - ESPN
Analysis: " Take Burrow and build your team around the Heisman-winning quarterback. Cincinnati already has a WR1 in A.J. Green and RB1 in Joe Mixon, and there are a few solid offensive pieces elsewhere, including the impending debut of 2019 first-round pick Jonah Williams, who missed all of last season with a shoulder injury but can step in immediately and protect Burrow's blind side."
Ryan Wilson - CBS Sports
Analysis: "Easiest decision in the entire 2020 NFL Draft. Burrow is a franchise QB, the Bengals need a franchise QB. Done and done."
Chris Trapasso - CBS Sports
Analysis: "Onto the No. 2 pick."
