This seemed a little optimistic but if Noah Sewell is still available in the third round for the Cincinnati Bengals, they should be very happy to make this selection. The former Oregon Duck linebacker could step in right away as a rookie and help solidify the middle of this defense.

In three seasons with Oregon, Sewell had 214 total tackles, 20.5 tackles for a loss, 7.5 sacks, and nine passes defended.

For the past three seasons, Germaine Pratt has been their starting middle linebacker and has done a good job to this point. However, he is set to be a free agent and he is a player that likely gets a better contract in free agency than what the Bengals can offer.

By drafting Noah Sewell they get Pratt’s immediate replacement and is someone who has the potential to be better in the coming years.
