The Bengals may have the roster with the fewest holes on it in the NFL. Were it not for Andy Dalton’s disappearing act on the big stage, one could argue that Cincinnati should have already been in contention for multiple titles over the past few seasons. Nevertheless, they are stuck with Dalton for now. Rather than overthinking things, the Bengals take a player who could end up becoming the best offensive lineman in the draft. Clemmings is far from a finished product, but the Bengals already have a pair of starting tackles under contract for 2015. They can groom Clemmings as a book-end of the future without the pressure of having a raw prospect play such an important position for a team that expects to contend. With a year of seasoning and the continued progression of one of the draft’s most gifted athletes, Clemmings could eventually step in and serve as one of the more dominant tackles in the league if handled correctly. Cincinnati is a classic example of a team that has effectively built their roster through the draft and smart free agency decision-making. This allows them to ‘draft-and-stash’ and potentially have their left tackle of the future.. Offensive Tackle. Pittsburgh. T.J. Clemmings. 21. player. 56
