The Cincinnati Bengals have plenty of weapons at the wide receiver position, but they lost one of their tight ends this offseason in C.J. Uzomah. Now, they did bring in Hayden Hurst, but there’s still the opportunity for an upgrade and with the 2022 NFL Draft’s top tight end still on the board late in the second round, they could find an answer.

Trey McBride wasn’t a red zone target at Colorado State, surprisingly. He had just one touchdown in 2021. What he did have, though, was over 1,100 yards receiving. As a tight end. That’s simply absurd, especially when you throw in the fact that he played in just 12 games.

If McBride is still on the board for Cincinnati, he will be very hard to ignore. Adding him to Joe Burrow’s weaponry is a scary thought in this 2022 NFL Mock Draft.

Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. CB. Nebraska. 64. player. Cam Taylor-Britt. 45

The Denver Broncos sent a lot of picks to the Seattle Seahawks for Russell Wilson, but they hang on to this one to close out the second round. While Denver already has Patrick Surtain II, Ronald Darby and K’waun Williams at corner, they could benefit from adding Cam Taylor-Britt here.

Taylor-Britt is a versatile defensive back that has played both corner and safety in college. He didn’t log a ton of interceptions, but was able to make plays on the ball other ways, having 11 passes defended in 2021 alone.

Finding a fit for Taylor-Britt could be a challenge, but if anything he is a great depth piece with potential to grow into more for the Broncos.
