A potential second or third-round target put on a show for the Bengals and other NFL teams.

The last pro days of the NFL draft cycle, aside from a couple more throwing sessions, wrapped up on Friday. This included Houston’s pro day with the main attraction being edge rusher Payton Turner.

Per Senior Bowl director Jim Nagy, the Bengals had defensive personnel on hand to watch Turner and run him through drills.

Top NFL evaluator says Ja’Marr Chase is “best WR prospect since Julio”

Pool Photo-USA TODAY Sports

Chase should be there at No. 5, but that doesn’t mean the Bengals will take the young stud.

Analysts seem split on who the Cincinnati Bengals should take at No. 5.

With many thinking tackle Penei Sewell is a lock for a team that is in desperate need of offensive line help, there’s no denying it’d be tough to pass of LSU’s Ja’Marr Chase or Florida’s Kyle Pitts.

With the connection that Chase and starting quarterback Joe Burrow already have, the Bengals...

Duke Tobin talks O-line depth in draft, confirms he gets input from Joe Burrow

Vasha Hunt-USA TODAY Sports

The de facto GM says the Draft is deeper at OL than WR, which could mean the team is targeting Ja’Marr Chase.

While I recently said the Bengals’ recent Draft strategy suggests the team will take Penei Sewell, after comments made by Duke Tobin on Dan Hoard’s podcast, it appears they are moving away from that approach.

If you put Tobin’s comments together, it seems they are now favoring taking Ja’Marr Chase with the fifth overall pick.

The Cincinnati Bengals have released a fan favorite in Giovani Bernard on Wednesday morning.

This is a business decision, as the Bengals are saving money in the running backs room. The Bengals were first in the NFL in cap space going to running backs, which is a position that many deem to be less valuable than others.
