The Bengals were the first NFL team to use blockchain technology and now they’ve partnered with FanChain so their fans can bet on both pre-game games and in real time during playoff matchups. It’s how you win big without being a gambler.
Following the 2021 NFL season, the Cincinnati Bengals won a playoff game for the first time in 31 years. Then there was a second. Then there was the AFC Championship, when second-year star Joe Burrow outdueled Patrick Mahomes as the Bengals beat the Kansas City Chiefs in overtime to get to the Super Bowl.
However, the Bengals were unable to complete the task, falling 23-20 to the Los Angeles Rams, earning Cincinnati the No. 31 overall selection in the 2022 NFL Draft.
The Bengals have eight selections in this year’s draft and may have acquired one of the best first-round steals in Michigan safety Daxton Hill with their first.

The Bengals needed defensive back assistance, and they got it with the 31st overall selection, which went to Michigan Wolverines safety Daxton Hill. Some speculated that he may be selected earlier in the draft, but with clubs selling players left and right to fill certain positions, it didn’t happen.
However, the Bengals profit because they acquire a tremendously flexible guy with lightning-quick speed, maybe the most of any position in this year’s draft class. His main disadvantage is his size, since he is just 192 pounds. And that’s pretty much why the grade underneath has a negative sign on it.
