The Bengals have a few clear needs going into the 2019 offseason. They need to upgrade at both linebacker and offensive line Womens Hardy Nickerson Jersey , and there are a few players at the top of the draft like LSU linebacker Devin White or Alabama offensive tackle Jonah Williams. It is looking increasingly likely that those players won’t be available at the 11th overall pick, though. Because of that sentiment, 247 Sports has presented a new possibility for the Bengals at 11.Bengals: Noah Fant, Tight end, IowaFant is a very interesting prospect. He was obviously underused as he only had 69 catches for just over 1,000 yards over his final two seasons at Iowa. He did, however, score 18 touchdowns over that span, which projects well to the NFL. What makes him intriguing is his style of play. When you hear that he is a 6’5” tight end who is a touchdown machine, one is inclined to think he is a basketball-first guy, adept at boxing defenders out http://www.thebengalslockerroom.com/authentic-john-miller-jersey , but is a project. While Fant has shown he can do that, he does most of his damage with actual route-running and athleticism. When you watch him play, Fant looks more like a wide receiver out there than a tight end because of his fluidity. In fact, there were several times Iowa tossed him bubble screens that would normally go to the quick receivers, but he would show an amazing ability to run after the catch. Fant’s draft stock has yet to really be determined, though. He has plenty to gain from the NFL Scouting Combine and private visits where teams can really put him through some drills. And, as we know in today’s NFL landscape, quality pass-catching tight ends are a rising commodity. It also helps that San Francisco’s George Kittle, another Hawkeye tight end, has had great success after having a very similar collegiate background to Fant.Right now, it seems like the Bengals could move back pretty easily in the first round and still end up with him Josh Malone Jersey White , but he could easily rise up draft boards in these pre-draft workouts. Luckily, the Bengals are in a spot where a team looking for a quarterback could try and move up to No. 11 if one falls, so if Fant remains a mid-to-late round target, Cincinnati could stockpile picks (sound familiar?) while improving another part of their offense and selecting the guy they truly covet.Fant could become a pretty big name if he joined the Bengals, but it would also show the team probably moving on from their former first round tight end, Tyler Eifert. He is set to become a free agent after being placed on injured reserve following a gruesome leg injury—his latest in a string of unfortunate issues plaguing him since 2014. However, is also very possible that the Bengals could bring Eifert back on another one-year “prove it” deal and still draft a guy like Fant to be the future at the position, as well as overall insurance for the 2019 season. After all, C.J. Uzomah and Tyler Kroft are also set to become free agents, and Andy Dalton has show a proclivity to use tight ends pretty frequently. Sadly, it has become increasingly hard for the Bengals to rely on Eifert to stay healthy. It’s unfortunate because he is obviously a talented player when healthy http://www.thebengalslockerroom.com/authentic-mark-walton-jersey , but he has missed 34 games since he made the Pro Bowl after a stellar 2015 campaign. That’s where the selection of Fant makes sense. With a new head coach coming in, it could be time to fully move on from Eifert and try to grab a young player who looks like he could give opposing NFL defenses some major matchup issues. It may have taken the Cincinnati Bengals a while to find a defensive coordinator for new head coach Zac Taylor, but the rest of the coaching staff is now rounding into form.The team announced on Thursday the hiring of Nick Eason (defensive line), Tem Lukabu (linebackers), Brad Kragthorpe (offensive assistant), and Jordan Kovacs (defensive quality control) to their coaching staff with Todd Hunt and Garrett Swanson joining the team as assistant strength and conditioning coaches.All six coaches come to the Bengals from positions in college football, though Eason and Lukabu have prior NFL coaching experience.Eason spent 2018 at Austin Peay University and had accepted a job at Vanderbilt for 2019 before joining the Bengals. He previously spent four years with the Tennessee Titans as a defensive line coach from 2014-17.Lukabu was the linebackers coach at Mississippi State last season. He has previously served as a defensive quality control coach with the San Francisco 49ers (2016-17) and defensive assistant with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2012-13).Kragthorpe was an offensive coaching analyst at LSU last season after spending the prior two seasons at Utah State.Kovacs was a graduate assistant under Jim Harbaugh at Michigan the last two seasons. He played three seasons for the Miami Dolphins at safety (2013-15).Hunt and Swanson come to the Bengals after being with the University of Illinois.
