State of the Franchise: Level

The Cincinnati Bengals drafted tackles in the first two rounds but it doesn’t look like either one will start this year. Starting tackles Adrew Whitworth and Andre Smith will be free agents following this season so those were future moves. The Bengals treated this offseason as if they just won the Super Bowl and are loaded already.
