Now that the Cincinnati Bengals have completed most of the offseason’s roster overhaul and have official dates for rookie minicamps, OTAs and training camp, it’s time to review.

Meaning power rankings, of course.

Doug Farrar of Touchdown Wire has us covered on that front, listing the Bengals 29th in his post-draft rankings:

“Well, this matters: The Bengals lost their two best defenders (edge rusher Carl Lawson and cornerback William Jackson III) in free agency and failed to replace them with equivalent talents. The 4-11-1 Bengals could be in for a tough go, though the passing game will be fun to watch.”

It’s all fair, too. As we’ve written here often, the Bengals will take a big gamble on whether Trey Hendrickson can keep producing at a high level after an outlier of a season and the cornerback room will feature its first three or four names making debuts with the team in Week 1.

But as always, the Bengals will have to prove doubters wrong on the field to really start seeing some change in the power rankings. Keep in mind a brand new offensive line is a big part of the equation too.
