Bengals coach Zac Taylor said the team couldn't pass on Hill, who is expected to contribute right away in the secondary as a safety or nickel cornerback.
A dearth of premier passers in the upcoming NFL draft meant the quarterback carousel spun faster than ever this spring.
Russell Wilson, Matt Ryan, Marcus Mariota, Carson Wentz, Teddy Bridgewater, Drew Lock and Deshaun Watson all changed teams in 2022.
CINCINNATI (AP) — The Cincinnati Bengals aren't used to this, picking so late in the NFL draft.
They had early picks in the past two drafts, and the stakes were huge. Not so much this time.
As the Super Bowl runner-up, Cincinnati has the 31st pick.
31, 63. CINCINNATI BENGALS (13-8)
LAST SEASON: Bengals coach Zac Taylor entered his third year under considerable pressure to show results — and he did. With a (generally) healthy quarterback Joe Burrow returning from a devastating knee injury that prematurely ended his rookie season in 2021, and eventual Offensive Rookie of the Year Ja'Marr Chase, Cincinnati wasn't quite a juggernaut.
CLEVELAND (AP) — Denzel Ward got locked down. Now there's a switch.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Russell Wilson flashed that mile-wide smile and embraced the prospect of playing in the loaded AFC and in the shadows of John Elway and Peyton Manning.

CINCINNATI (AP) — The Cincinnati Bengals weren't expected to be in the Super Bowl.
