The Bengals added edge rusher Myles Murphy in the first round and they added some speed to their secondary in the second round of the 2023 NFL Draft.

Cornerback DJ Turner ran the fastest 40-yard-dash at this year’s Scouting Combine in Indianapolis and the Bengals made him the 60th overall pick in Kansas City on Friday night.

Turner became a regular on the Wolverines defense in 2021 and helped the team to back-to-back Big Ten titles to close out his time in Ann Arbor. He led the team with 10 passes defensed during the 2022 season and also recorded 36 tackles and one interception.

Chidobe Awuzie, Mike Hilton, Cam Taylor-Britt, Sidney Jones, and Jalen Davis are among the other cornerbacks for the Bengals.

  1. I do not mind the first two picks… But the safety in the third? Seriously?!? You trade out of Darnell Washington (I have the feeling Pittsburgh is going to make us regret that decision.), and you leave Dawand Jones for a back up safety?

  2. I’m sorry, I hated the third round pick…
    Hope he proves me wrong, but this looks a forced pick of a backup player at the position.
    Mediocre speed…
    Mediocre hits…
    Mediocre tackling…
    Mediocre size..
    Mediocre strength…
    But hey he plays smart!!

    Not exactly the break down of a good third round pick, especially when you have holes to fill.
    Picks I would like to see?
    Dawand Jones???
    Zach Kuntz???
    Later WR pick Bryce Ford Wheaton..
