In the most recent mock draft from PFF, the Bengals choose Oregon State's Taliese Fuaga

The Cincinnati Bengals are preparing for the 2024 NFL Draft, as the NFL Combine comes to an end at Lucas Oil Stadium.  

Cincinnati has a number of roster openings to fill, particularly at right tackle, where Jonah Williams is expected to go in free agency, and the team has the opportunity to take a 'plug-and-play' type player with the No. 18 pick.  

McGuinness noted, "Pick No. 18 appears to be a wonderful location for the Bengals in this draft - either an immediate impact   

Brock Bowers slides into a position where they can move up, or they sit where they are and take a player from the trenches.   

Fuaga could easily replace Jonah Williams at right tackle. In 2023, the Oregon State product received an 80.0 pass-blocking mark and a 90.9 run-blocking grade.  

With the possibility of losing Williams to free agency, the Bengals could really need someone like Fuaga to protect Joe Burrow on the right side of the offensive line.  

Fuaga recorded a 5.13 40-yard sprint, 1.77 10-yard split, 32" vertical jump, and 9'3" broad jump at the NFL Combine.  

NFL Draft expert Lance Zierlein evaluated Fuaga as a draft candidate, noting, "Beefy right tackle capable of playing at a high level despite his lack of ideal pad level and lower-body bend." Fuaga has an aggressive style of play.
