Once again the Bengals have four compensatory picks and could have had more if they didn’t sign unrestricted free agent Andre Smith. The only good thing about letting go of Whitworth and Zeitler is they still getting compensatory picks because of it. The Bengals picked up a third round because of Zeitler and also received a sixth for Whitworth.
What does this mean? The Bengals can focus more on needs and focus on what they had in 2015 which was having depth at every position. There is just one Free Agent that will be discussed in the next posting but the rest should be draft picks and that will be explained later.
A short rebuild can come easier with a boat load of picks. The Bengals need to hit on every need and don’t miss.
