CINCINNATI – The Bengals were one of 31 NFL teams who watched Penei Sewell practice on Friday’s Pro Day in Oregon.
The 20-year-old put in an impressive performance that helped cement his status as the best offensive player in the 2021 NFL draft.
Tony Pauline of the Pro Football Network reports that most teams believe Cincinnati will take Sewell with a fifth overall win.
“Most felt that the Bengals would eventually design Sewell,” wrote Pauline. “They were happy with what they saw, especially with offensive line coach Frank Pollack who trained Sewell during positional exercises.”

The Bengals are Sewell’s favorites. You will likely get a chance to take it with the fifth choice. Three quarterbacks are expected to go off the board with the first three picks.
Atlanta has the fourth choice. They could take on a quarterback, but they’re also expected to consider Florida’s Kyle Pitts. The Hawks were in Oregon for Pro Day, but aren’t expected to take Sewell.
The Bengals will have to make a tough decision if LSU-wide recipient Ja’Marr Chase and Sewell are still fifth on their board.
Both are considered to be the top players in their respective positions. It’s a good position for the Bengals, but choosing between Sewell or Chase is a lot easier said than done.
The front office has enough time to make the final assessments. The NFL Draft begins Thursday, April 29th at 8 p.m. ET.
