    Michael Jordan is the 20th @OhioStateFB player drafted by the @Bengals, that is more Buckeyes than any other NFL team has taken since the Bengals were founded in 1968

    Cincinnati Bengals
    Round 1 (11): OT Jonah Williams, Alabama

    Round 2 (52): TE Drew Sample, Washington

    Round 3 (72): LB Germaine Pratt, NC State

    Round 4 (104): QB Ryan Finley, NC State

    Round 4 (125): DI Renell Wren, Arizona State

    Round 4 (136): G Michael Jordan, Ohio State

    Round 6 (182): RB Trayvon Williams, Texas A&M

    Round 6 (210): LB Deshaun Davis, Auburn

    Round 6 (211): RB Rodney Anderson, Oklahoma

    Round 7 (223): CB Jordan Brown, South Dakota State

    Day 1:

    Pro Football Focus’ No. 4 overall player in the class, offensive tackle Jonah Williams was a steal for Cincinnati at pick No. 11 in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft. While many want to kick him inside to guard, Williams should have his chance to prove himself at tackle in the NFL after earning impressive run-blocking and pass-blocking grades as a three-year starter with ‘Bama split between right and left tackle. Williams’ high-end production should translate to the next level quite easily.

    Day 2:

    Among draft-eligible FBS tight ends with at least 300 offensive snaps played in 2018, Sample ranked 14th in overall grade (75.5) and first in run-blocking grade (82.3). But Sample’s admirable efforts as a blocker still shouldn’t have warranted such a high selection on Friday. The former Washington tight end entered the draft as the No. 192 overall player in the class on PFF’s final big board.

    NC State’s Germaine Pratt doesn’t enter the NFL with great coverage ability, but his pass-rushing ability and run defense were both outstanding last season. Earning an 84.7 pass-rush grade and a 90.3 run-defense grade, Pratt turned in the seventh-best overall grade (90.3) among qualifying off-ball linebackers in this class in 2018. PFF was higher on other off-ball linebackers still available at pick No. 72, but Pratt still wasn’t as big of a reach as Sample given that he landed at No. 115 on our board.

    Day 3:

    Cincinnati traded up on Day 3 to snag former NC State quarterback Ryan Finley at the top of the fourth round, a great move on all accounts. Largely because the board reflects positional value, Finley was slotted as a top-100 player for PFF in this year’s class and well worth the No. 104 selection. He lacks the type of arm strength most would like to see at the NFL level, but throw for throw he’s one of the most accurate QBs in the class.

    Former South Dakota State cornerback Jordan Brown, PFF’s No. 150 overall player, was another great value pick for the Bengals on Day 3. Brown is a big, physical cornerback who dominated lesser FCS competition in his career at South Dakota State.

    DRAFT GRADE: AVERAGE
