Bearcats TE Josh Whyle talks potentially joining Bengals via NFL draft

The Cincinnati Bengals will be on the market for at least one tight end in the 2023 NFL draft after missing out on the first and second waves at the position in free agency.

University of Cincinnati Bearcats standout Josh Whyle could be a guy they target in the mid-rounds.

Speaking with Mike Petraglia of CLNS Media at Cincinnati’s pro day, Whyle noted his priorities when seeking out a pro team: “Playing here would be pretty cool. Playing in the city at all three levels of the game, that would be pretty cool. But you know I want a team that wants me.”

Whyle, a LaSalle High School product, revealed that he has been training out west with first-round candidates Darnell Washington and Michael Mayer.

Whyle, 6’6″ and 250 pounds, scored 15 touchdowns over his last three seasons and is indeed a prospect the Bengals will look at closely during the draft — much as they were doing on Thursday when most Bengals brass and coaches were spotted at the event.
