The Cincinnati Bengals have seven picks in the 2020 NFL Draft, including the most important at No. 1 overall. The Bengals are expected to select LSU QB Joe Burrow with the first pick in the draft, so there’s not much to touch on there.
Outside of the QB position, the Bengals still have some glaring holes on their roster. The defense was among the worst in the NFL in 2019, so adding depth and talent at any of those positions would be a plus. An elite pass-rusher is ideal.
