25. Cincinnati Bengals: Protect Joe Burrow
Joe Burrow’s season came to a tragic finish when he was carted off with a season-ending knee injury. On the bright side, Burrow’s rehab is reportedly ahead of schedule and he expects to be back by week 1.
Cincinnati desperately needs to protect Burrow. He has good weapons on the outside in Tyler Boyd and Tee Higgins but needs protection to be able to find him. With the #5 pick in the NFL draft, the Bengals need to select OT Penei Sewell out of Oregon and if they don’t know if he’ll be there, they need to trade up. Sewell is a dominant OL prospect who can protect Burrow for the next decade.
