A few mock drafts have had the Cincinnati Bengals taking Georgia cornerback Kelee Ringo in the first round.
It’s not a controversial pick by any means, given the team’s need at the spot and Ringo as a prospect, but it’s certainly not as popular as the Bengals taking a tight end or offensive lineman.
But maybe the idea has some wheels.
According to The Draft Network’s Ryan Fowler, the Bengals had a formal meeting with Ringo at the scouting combine.
This doesn’t make Ringo and the Bengals a guaranteed thing. But he’s got first-round traits, the versatility to move around to spots like safety and fun upside after only being a two-year starter.
Plus, the Bengals have the need considering depth was an issue last season, Chidobe Awuzie continues to rehab and Eli Apple is a free agent.
Cornerback in the first round could indeed be on the menu again for the Bengals.
