After those first three QBs fly off the board in succession to commence things, it will be the next three selections that determine this particular prop bet.
Atlanta and Miami are in that trifecta and will probably end up as the new homes for Florida TE Kyle Pitts and LSU receiver Ja’Marr Chase, respectively. That leaves only the inept Bengals to account for, which brings about a whole lot of possibilities for what they might do. Mike Brown is still the owner.
However, even Cincy can’t resist this mammoth 6-foot-6, 335-pound lineman. One, the Bengals’ long-standing elephant in the room — even before this past season — has been their woeful offensive line. That only escalated as last year’s No. 1 overall pick, Joe Burrow, was consistently being hounded by opposing defenses, ultimately resulting in a season-ending knee injury.
Obviously, protecting Burrow should be the top priority, especially as he’s easing back into the fold from a torn ACL and MCL. Well then, here’s a perfect elixir for that. Adding Sewell makes too much sense, but remember, this is the Bengals.
Pick: Under 6.5 (-120)
