Zac Taylor’s presence at Texas Pro Day could hint at Bengals draft direction

The Cincinnati Bengals said a lot during a normally secretive draft process this week at the Texas Pro Day.

There, head coach Zac Taylor attended the event, which given how few he attends each year, was possibly a pretty big sign of where the draft might be going for the Bengals.

Texas has some massive names heading to the draft this year:

  • DL Byron Murphy

  • WR Adonai Mitchell

  • TE Ja’Tavion Sanders

  • RB Jonathon Brooks

  • WR Xavier Worthy

Those top three names are commonly listed as top-50 prospects and the other two aren’t all that far off, either.

Murphy would make a lot of sense for the Bengals if he falls to them in the first round, given the loss of DJ Reader and Murphy’s do-it-all upside. But it’s best not to sleep on wide receivers, either, with Tyler Boyd likely not coming back. Mitchell and Worthy would be field-stretchers who fit the offense.

If nothing else, it’s a sign to keep a close eye on those Texas prospects during the draft itself.
