Cincinnati Bengals fans are excited as we count down the days until the 2022 NFL Draft with NFL analyst Chris Simms on Dave Lapham In The Trenches presented by First Star Logistics.

We've already done an overall draft preview and looked at the wide receiver and tight end positions in our first position draft look.

Watch here: 

We turn our attention to the most significant need coming off the Super Bowl LVI loss to the Rams, the offensive line.

Yes, the Bengals addressed the need along the offensive line by signing three free agents. However, if the right player is available at the 31st pick, could Duke Tobin pull the trigger and take another offensive lineman?
