Cincinnati Bengals draft picks 2022: Round-by-round selections

USA TODAY

Here is a 2022 NFL draft pick-by-pick breakdown for the Cincinnati Bengals:

Round 1 (No. 31 overall) - Daxton Hill, S, Michigan: Director of Player Personnel Duke Tobin recently said the AFC champs didn't need any starters, and Hill might sub in behind established players like S Jessie Bates and nickelback Mike Hilton. Hill's 4.38-second 40-yard-dash speed is an asset from the slot, box or center field and probably ensures his snap count steadily increases over the course of his rookie year. And with Bates on the franchise tag, Hill could take his spot permanently in a year. Draft tracker

Round 2 (60, from Buccaneers through Bills) - Cam Taylor-Britt, CB, Nebraska: He's 5-11 and 196 pounds with 4.38 speed and might challenge Eli Apple for snaps at corner for the AFC champs. Taylor-Britt had 11 PBUs in 2021. Draft tracker

Round 3 (95) - Zachary Carter, DT, Florida: At 6-4, 282 pounds, he could be an interior rusher on passing downs between Cincinnati DEs Trey Hendrickson and Sam Hubbard. Draft tracker
