Dax Hill - DB, University of Michigan

"Safety might not be the biggest need for the Bengals' secondary, he's really a hybrid who can match up in the nickel in coverage."

Grade: A

"Love this fit. Hill can cover the slot and even be tried outside if the Bengals want."

Grade: A-

"Hill can play anywhere in the secondary."

Grade: A

"The first-team All-Big Ten performer is capable of playing in the box, near the line of scrimmage and even as the deep safety. He has the long speed to cover a lot of ground from sideline to sideline. This varied skill set can turn him into a defensive weapon."

Grade: B

"Hill produced a top-10 coverage slot coverage grade among Power Five defensive backs from 2020 to 2021."

Grade: Good

Cam Taylor-Britt - DB, Nebraska

"Sleeper at the CB spot. Bouncy, explosive, speedy. Recovery skill is outstanding. Seemingly always finds the football... Taylor-Britt is a damn good player."

Grade: B+

"...his physical traits (size, length, athleticism), competitive nature, and ball skills give him NFL starting potential in press-man or zone-heavy schemes."

Sheil Kapadia's Grade: B+

"He's a typical Bengals pick who has proven leadership as a captain and huge production, including five interceptions and 22 passes defended over the course of his college career."

Grade: B

"Taylor-Britt was a three-year starter at both corner and safety who is solid in run support. He's an outstanding athlete (4.38 40-yard dash at the combine) who's disruptive at the catch point. He finished his college career with six interceptions"

Grade: B

Zach Carter - DT, Florida

Grade: B+
