Best reactions after Bengals draft Chase Brown in fifth round

Brown, owner of 1,643 yards and 10 touchdowns on a 5.0 average last year, looks like the team’s answer to losing Samaje Perine unexpectedly in free agency.

The Fighting Illini standout was the second offensive player in a row picked by the Bengals on Day 3 of the draft. Like Purdue wideout Charlie Jones, Brown could have an immediate impact even before earning the right to fight for a full-time role in 2024.
