Our good friend Luke Easterling over at Draft Wire just released his latest three-round mock draft with just four weeks left in the regular season.

For the Cincinnati Bengals, Luke has them adding to their secondary and offensive line with their first three picks.

At pick No. 17, he goes with an excellent cornerback in Clemson’s Andrew Booth Jr. Booth (6’0″, 200 pounds) has 35 tackles and three interceptions this season. He has five interceptions and nine passes defended since the start of the 2020 season. The Draft Network’s Joe Marino has compared him to stud Packers CB Jaire Alexander.

With the 48th pick, the Bengals go with Washington OT Jaxson Kirkland. Kirkland (6’7″, 310 pounds) was a First-Team All-Pac 12 in 2021 and 2020. He has started all but two games at left tackle in the last two seasons and also has 25 games of starting experience at right guard.

Finally, at No. 82, it’s Georgia safety Tykee Smith. Smith (5’10”, 198 pounds) missed the first five games of the season with an injury, returned against Auburn and then tore his ACL at practice. Smith was in his first season at Georgia after transferring from West Virginia.
