The Bengals have a new offensive lineman. A good one , even."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections #BITESIZEFilm RoomRoster Transactions and ContractsOrange & Black InsiderSalary Cap And CBANFL DraftAnalysisBreaking down the Bengals’ selection of Jonah Williams in Round 1New,35commentsThe Bengals have a new offensive lineman. A good one, even.EDTShareTweetShareShareBreaking down the Bengals’ selection of Jonah Williams in Round 1Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY SportsRaise your hand if you had the Bengals drafting the first offensive tackle in the NFL Draft right after Bobby Hart signed his three-year deal.No one? Me neither.In back-to-back years, the Bengals invested in the offensive line with their first-round picks. Last year, it was Billy Price. This year, it’s Alabama offensive tackle Jonah Williams.After an interesting first 10 picks which featured the Steelers trading up right in front of the Bengals, Cincinnati has added the latest piece to their evolving offensive line.What brings to the BengalsTechnical prowess: He’s not an athletic freak, and he’s not a towering presence, but no offensive tackle has a better feel at the position in this class than Williams. His movement ability and hand usage is incredibly advanced for someone who just turned 21 years old last November. Upside: Williams’ aforementioned youth will work in his advantage. Though he doesn’t have high-end athleticism, he’s far away from his peak and is in a great position to get better. His base level of ability will help him become even better with more experience.Experience: At the best program in college football, Williams started from day one as a true freshman and maintained that status for three years. With 44 starts under his belt against mostly the SEC, Williams is battle-tested for the NFL.Why the Bengals picked WilliamsNeed: With the top two linebackers off the board, Williams represented the best player available at their second-biggest position of need. An offensive tackle was likely to be picked within the first three rounds , and the board fell right for Williams to be the pick at 11th overall.Readiness: Out of all the tackles in this class, no one was ready to start right away more than Williams. Hart’s contract may not guarantee his starting spot like some thought it would, and if they expect Williams to come in and start right away like Price did a year ago, he’ll be able to handle it. Complete ability: While Washington State’s Andre Dillard was the more productive pass protector, Williams boasts much more ability as a run blocker. Williams’ weaknesses involve his size and athleticism, but he can make any block in any scheme in both the run and passing game.“The shortest path to somebody is directly to them, you know, directly to their center of mass,” Williams told Pro Football Focus’ Austin Gayle. “So, for me, if we’re talking an inch or 5/8 of an inch or whatever we’re talking about with arm length, you can easily overcome that just by shooting your hands inside.“Obviously, it is advantageous to have longer arms. I understand that. But I think you can overcome a lot of that.”Positional Versatility: At Alabama , Williams started at right tackle in his freshman year and at left tackle in his sophomore and junior years. He’s proficient enough as a blocker to play all five spots on the line as well, providing extra value for the Bengals. Expect him to play tackle exclusively, though.Improve the offensive line at all costs: For the second straight year, the Bengals’ offensive line will likely feature two new starters on the right side. Newly signed John Miller will man the right guard spot and Williams may have the upper hand at right tackle. This new duo should be much better than the last two.Don’t count out Williams playing left tackle this year either. If the Bengals’ don’t draft a linebacker in the first round, they might go with an offensive lineman for the second year in a row."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections #BITESIZEFilm RoomRoster Transactions and ContractsOrange & Black InsiderSalary Cap And CBA11 for 11 draft series: Jonah Williams can give the Bengals’ offensive line the boost it needsNew,81commentsIf the Bengals’ don’t draft a linebacker in the first round, they might go with an offensive lineman for the second year in a row.EDTShareTweetShareShare11 for 11 draft series: Jonah Williams can give the Bengals’ offensive line the boost it needsChristopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY SportsThe Bengals boasted one of the worst offensive lines in the NFL over the last two years, and it made a profoundly negative impact.Thankfully, the Bengals line was better in 2018 than it was the year before, thanks to the addition of Cordy Glenn and Billy Price, as well as some work from Trey Hopkins and Christian Westerman. Even though it was improved, however, didn’t mean it was good.The Bengals still had a bottom-tier offensive line when Zac Taylor came in to Cincinnati , so what did he do? He re-signed Alex Redmond and Bobby Hart. And just like that, all concerns were gone.Just kidding. The opposite, actually. The Bengals did sign former Bills guard John Miller, so hopefully he will compete for the right guard spot with Redmond. Hopefully, this means they’re not done improving. If the Bengals want to draft a lineman for the second year in a row, they should consider Alabama tackle Jonah Williams.Williams is one of the most decorated players in the draft, which means a lot for a lineman. He started all 15 games as a rookie at right tackle and won a spot on the Freshman All-American team. He also earned two All-SEC selections, a third team All-American selection, a first team All-America selection, won a national championship, two SEC championship, and was a finalist for the Outland Trophy.Projected as a first round selection, could Williams be the next starter on Cincinnati’s offensive line? Why the pick makes sense:The Bengals currently don’t have a backup tackle on the roster.Given Williams’ versatility and potential at guard , he could replace Clint Boling if the Bengals choose not to re-sign him after this year (which would be a mistake, but that is a conversation for another day).Williams has experience on both sides of the line, and even though he has only played tackle, he could very easily move to guard.The best ability is availability, and Williams has proven durable over the course of his career. He has not missed a game in his three seasons at Alabama. The Bengals usually reward that kind of dependability on the OL (e.g., Bobby Hart, Billy Price).During the 920 snaps of his junior year in 2018, he gave up no sacks.He is a student of the game, and shows marked improvement every year.Despite his lack of size, Williams overpowers those across from him in the run game.In pass protection, he uses great hand placement to keep his leverage.He has great tenacity and is usually able to recover if he is beaten initially.Williams does a great job of moving to the second level on run plays and dominating those blocks.Why the pick doesn’t make sense:The Bengals have, by their standards, probably fully addressed the OL. Both starting tackles are under contract for the next two years.Williams’ first instincts are wrong sometimes , so he gets beat pretty quickly. In college, he had the skill and wherewithal to recover, but that might not be the case in the NFL.While his strength and power are top-shelf, he often got beat by quickness. This could be a problem going up against Myles Garrett and T.J. Watt twice a year.In the running game, getting beat by quickness often meant giving up the running lanes.Lacks mobility when pulling.As bad as the Bengals’ offensive line is, they have bigger needs elsewhere on the roster. In the eyes of Taylor and the front office, the OL is “fixed” for now. The Bengals will only draft Williams if certain LBs and DLs are off the board. That said, Williams would still be a great pick if that was the scenario that played out on draft day.
