A Bengals fifth-round pick in 2018, Phillips spent eight weeks on Reserve/Injured (left knee) in '19, but when healthy he turned heads with his playmaking ability and a nose for the football ...

Played in 15 games as a rookie (one start at nickel DB), and had 19 tackles, two PDs and FF ... In college, he set FBS career record with 12 total returns for TDs, tied FBS record with five career pick-sixes, and ranked sixth in FBS history with 3145 career kickoff return yards.
Hobson's Choice: walking the line in the draft
Bengaldom hopes their team walked the line well in last week's NFL Draft. They went offensive line in the first round and then in the last round. Mississippi's Rod Taylor waited a long time to get picked, but he may have enough versatility to stay around longer than that.
Shades of '12 draft gets defensive
It has kind of a whiff of 2012. The Bengals would love that, if this weekend's draft turned out like that one since it yielded six starters or regulars and doubled the standard of three for each draft. It was a big lift for the 2011 team's surprising play-off appearance and helped set the table for those five straight post-season runs. Like the '12 draft, this one was defined by trades.
