The Cincinnati Bengals registered a number of draft picks that classify as steals in the 2021 NFL draft.

But is third-round pick Joseph Ossai the top guy in that category?

Draft Wire’s Luke Easterling went through all 32 teams and tabbed Ossai as the guy. Given his tremendous upside and the fact he’s already talking about sacking guys like Ben Roethlisberger, it’s hard to argue.

But the Bengals indeed found plenty of value across the board. Fourth-round pick Tyler Shelvin, for example, was a guy Patriots coach Bill Belichick wanted.

Another fourth-round pick, D’Ante Smith, has massive upside after an interesting draft journey that included needing to put a ton of mass back on his frame.

Oh, and sixth-rounders Trey Hill and Chris Evans have already been tabbed as massive steals capable of contributing right away.

If nothing else, while Ossai is probably the best outright value for the Bengals during the draft, he also served as a sign of things to come given the immense value the team got across the board over seven rounds and 10 selections.
