As free agency and 2021 NFL Draft quickly approach, take a look at the latest mock drafts and find out who the analysts are pairing the Bengals with the No. 5 overall pick. 

HBCUs Have Played Prominent Role In Bengals History

As Jackson State head coach Deion Sanders uses his Hall-of-Fame pedigree to put the spotlight on football at historically black colleges and universities, the Bengals just observed the 45th anniversary of head coach Paul Brown's last and best team that featured a bevy of stars from that tiny game that once towered over the NFL landscape.

Ken Anderson, who has more NFL passing titles than all but two players. Isaac Curtis, the prototype of the modern pro receiver who made them change the rules. And this man. Leapin' Lemar Parrish.

Bengals Scouts Revise The Script For Next Draft Phase

It doesn't look like there's going to a story coming out of this draft like last year's Tale of Tee Higgins when the Bengals picked off one of their best rookies ever with the first selection of the second round.

Jalen Davis Re-Signs With Bengals

Also on Wednesday, cornerback Jalen Davis signed a one-year contract extension through the 2021 season. The cornerback joined the Bengals' practice squad midway through last season and played in six games, recording four tackles.
