This will be the fourth time in franchise history that the Bengals will have picked first overall. Cincinnati took Ohio State defensive tackle Dan Wilkinson first in 1994, followed the next year by Penn State running back Ki-Jana Carter. The last time the Bengals had the top selection, they selected USC QB Carson Palmer in 2003. writer Dan Parr broke down the draft order of the first 20 picks and the potential needs for the Bengals heading into next season.

The draft order is determined by record, and using strength of schedule as the first tiebreaker (record and strength of schedule are official tiebreakers to determine the draft order). The final 12 first-round spots will be determined by playoff results.

The 2020 NFL Draft will be held April 23-25 in Las Vegas.
