In this scenario, the Bengals swap seven places, while Justin Fields drops to 5th and the 49ers move up to get their husband (the first four picks were Trevor Lawrence, DeVonta Smith, Penei Sewell, and Zach Wilson).
This just goes to show that it cannot be taken for granted that Cincinnati Sewell will still finish in 5th place. He’s very much in the game for the Dolphins in 3rd place or even for the Jets in 2nd place. But here the Bengals get the next best solution: Acquire four picks, including one for the second round, to drop seven points and still one Landing superb tackle in Darrisaw which many in the design analysis world believe is the second largest tackle.
Yes, Ja’Marr Chase was still number 5 on the board, and if it did the Bengals would likely stay and take Chase. But it’s all an experiment and it’s fun.
