- According to NFL Media’s Mike Garafolo, other teams are eyeing the Bengals at No. 11 as a potential landing spot for one of the quarterbacks in the draft, specifically Ohio State’s Dwayne Haskins.
- Some factors include the Ohio connection with Haskins and the “splashy” hiring of Zac Taylor from Sean McVay‘s coaching staff with the Rams.
- Ian Rapoport adds that the only notable quarterback the Bengals have actually brought in for a visit is N.C. State’s Ryan Finley, which indicates Cincinnati might be looking more for a backup than someone to supplant Andy Dalton.
- Tom Pelissero mentions Taylor told him at the owners meeting that it was nice to walk into a situation “with a comfort factor knowing what your quarterback can do.”
