Bengals Draft 2022
A complete list of Cincinnati Bengals picks in the 2022 NFL Draft can be found below.
This is a curious case of the player himself being a solid pick as Hill brings the right blend of smarts, instincts, smarts and quickness to the position. But safety is also a strength for Cincinnati with franchise player Jessie Bates and solid Vonn Bell. The team also has a fine slot corner in Mike HIlton. The Bengals didn’t have any glaring needs and the offensive line values didn’t line up, it’s just interesting that one of the best players available was more of a luxury. This might mean they won’t be signing Bates long-term.
The Bengals needed to give themselves more secondary depth with shaky Eli Apple complementing Chidobe Awuzie and Mike Hilton. Taylor-Britt is an experienced and aggressive cover man who needs some polish to go from flashy ballhawk to well-rounded in coverage.

The Bengals needed to replenish depth behind D.J. Reader and B.J. Hill and tapping into Carter’s strength and length makes sense. Carter flashes some big-time disruptive moves to wreak havoc in the backfield.
