Cincinnati Bengals
27 Mar 2020, 20:58 GMT+10

In the middle of the NFL's free agency frenzy, 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-

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 -

Analysis: "The Bengals can't resist the opportunity to take an Ohio native as their QB1 to build around."


Charles Davis -

Analysis: "Simply phenomenal 2019 season. The ability to make tremendous second- and third-reaction plays sends an Ohio kid back home."


Daniel Jeremiah -

Analysis: "When it's all said and done, I don't foresee any drama here. The Bengals land their franchise QB."


Chad Reuter -

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."
