In the initial mock draft by Daniel Jeremiah, the Bengals are predicted to secure a highly skilled offensive tackle.

The Cincinnati Bengals are confronted with significant decisions in the upcoming offseason, with the fate of their offensive line being a crucial aspect. Following the acquisition of Orlando Brown Jr. for the left tackle position, Jonah Williams, their 2019 first-round pick, initially sought a trade but eventually played as a right tackle in the last year of his rookie contract.

After delivering a commendable performance during the season, Williams stands to command a lucrative deal in the free-agent market, potentially exceeding the Bengals’ budget. This raises the question of how the Bengals will navigate this situation.

According to Daniel Jeremiah, he anticipates the Bengals addressing this issue in April. In his initial mock draft for 2024, Jeremiah envisions the Bengals selecting JC Latham, an offensive tackle from the University of Alabama Crimson Tide, with the 18th overall pick. Jeremiah emphasizes the imperative for the Bengals to address their offensive line, noting that Latham is considered by some evaluators as a top-10 pick. If available at No. 18, Jeremiah sees it as a favorable scenario for Cincinnati, with Latham capable of filling the right tackle position.
