“Cincinnati should keep veteran Andy Dalton and trade back to get more quality picks,” Robinson wrote. “There’s a good chance a team would give Cincy a few picks, including an additional first-rounder, to move out of the No. 1 pick. I would REALLY consider making a deal like that if I’m the Bengals. Depending on how far they move back, the Bengals could spend one of those picks on an off-the-ball linebacker who would immediately make the defense better — Isaiah Simmons, Patrick Queen or Kenneth Murray. They could also spend one of their first-round selections on a premier offensive tackle. With later picks, they should find help at running back, defensive back and receiver (a position with great depth in this class).”

“The Bengals should draft a quarterback with the first pick, but contrary to popular opinion, I’d take Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa,” Hall wrote. “Now fully cleared to compete without any restrictions, according to the agency that represents him, Tua brings so many dimensions to an offense and his style would fit well with the weapons around him. Joe Burrow, who is coming off one of the best college seasons by a quarterback in history, lost a QB battle to Dwayne Haskins at Ohio State before he transferred to LSU. And Haskins might not even be the QB1 in Washington this year. Tua should be the guy.”

“First things first,” Carr wrote. “The Bengals should keep veteran QB Andy Dalton. Last season, the offense was so banged up — and led by a first-year head coach — that it would have been hard for most QBs to succeed. By sticking with Dalton, Zac Taylor can have some continuity in an odd offseason (and hopefully, we see Cincy run the ball more next year). OK, let’s get back to the actual pick. With Dalton in place, the Bengals can draft the best player in this class in Chase Young, adding a great talent to give Cincinnati one of the league’s top-tier defensive lines.”

Are the Bengals 1 QB away from competing? If not, why not trade down, still get a QB, get an extra 2 or 3 picks/1 1st rounder and a pick,etc.

But if Burrow ends up being special, then it was obviously worth the draft pick.
