Cincinnati Bengals Mock Draft Roundup 1.0

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2021 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:

Pro Football Network - DiCecco (6/7)
3) Cincinnati Bengals: Ja'Marr Chase, WR LSU

The Bengals added Tee Higgins in 2020, and Tyler Boyd is an ascending slot receiver with his best days ahead of him. But Ja'Marr Chase gives quarterback Joe Burrow a real, number one receiving option to grow with over the next decade. Once an offense in dire need of playmakers, the Bengals could boast a receiving corps of Chase, Higgins, and Boyd, to pair with Burrow and running back Joe Mixon.

Fox Sports - McIntyre (6/7)
6. Cincinnati Bengals -- Walker Little, LT, Stanford

I remain bullish on Joe Burrow's ROY campaign, and even the Bengals' win total for 2020 (over 5.5). Protect your investment in 2021, Cincy.

Walter Football (5/19)
9. Cincinnati Bengals: Jalen Mayfield, OT, Michigan

Cordy Glenn is gone, so the Bengals will be looking for a new left tackle to protect Joe Burrow. I thought Cincinnati made a big mistake by not upgrading the offensive line in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Jalen Mayfield did a great job against Chase Young late in 2019, showcasing his athletic potential.

CBS Sports - Edwards (5/12)
2. Cincinnati Bengals: Penei Sewell, OL, Oregon

Sewell is too good of a prospect to bypass. By adding the Oregon product, the Bengals can move Jonah Williams to the right side or slide him inside. The protection of Joe Burrow is of the utmost importance.

CBS Sports - Trapasso (5/4)
2. Cincinnati Bengals: Penei Sewell, OL, Oregon

Sewell will enter the 2020 college football season as the most hyped offensive tackle prospect in a very long time. Size, athleticism, balance, power. He has it all. It'll make sense for the Bengals to build around Joe Burrow.

PFF - Renner (4/30)
3. Cincinnati Bengals -- OT Penei Sewell, Oregon

The use of the term “generational” has gotten out of control. That being said, Sewell is still a generational tackle prospect. He'll likely be the best offensive tackle prospect since at least Jake Long, if not Orlando Pace. He already dominated college football with an FBS-high 95.8 overall grade as a true sophomore -- his blend of power, technique and athleticism is scary.

San Diego Union Tribune (4/29)
3. Cincinnati (100/1) -- Gregory Rousseau, Edge, Miami

It's been almost two decades since a Hurricane defensive end was taken in the first round (Jerome McDougle in 2003). Rousseau finished with 15.5 sacks in 13 games as a redshirt freshman.

SI - Hanson (4/27)
3. Cincinnati Bengals: Gregory Rousseau, EDGE, Miami (FL)

Only five teams recorded fewer sacks than the Bengals' 31 in 2019 and Carlos Dunlap will be entering the final year of his contract in 2021. Rousseau had a breakout season as a redshirt freshman with 15.5 sacks, second nationally to only Chase Young (16.5), and 19.5 tackles for loss.

Bleacher Report - Miller (4/27)
1. Cincinnati Bengals -- OT Penei Sewell, Oregon

One year after selecting quarterback Joe Burrow with the No. 1 overall pick, the Cincinnati Bengals perfect the offensive line by selecting an elite left tackle prospect whom I've already compared to Jason Peters in terms of body type and movement.

Sliding Jonah Williams back to right tackle, where he started his career at Alabama, and aligning Penei Sewell on the left gives the Bengals a threatening bookend duo.

Sewell's 2019 tape showed no weaknesses. If he continues to play at that clip in 2020, he'll be a lock to be the first overall pick if a team without a need at quarterback selects in this spot.

SB Nation - Kadar (4/27)
3. Cincinnati Bengals: Penei Sewell, OT, Oregon

The Bengals have their franchise quarterback in Burrow, but their line play has been suspect. Sewell is a dominant force for Oregon and won the Outland Trophy last season.

The Athletic - Brugler (4/27)
4. Cincinnati Bengals -- *Ja'Marr Chase, WR, LSU

Joe Burrow and Ja'Marr Chase had one of the best quarterback-receiver seasons in college football history. Why not reunite them if you are the Bengals? Tee Higgins is a better No. 2 option in the NFL, allowing for Chase to take the baton from A.J. Green as the No. 1 wideout in Cincinnati.
