The Bengals got around to helping their pass rush in the third round by taking Willis, who was Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year and had 26 sacks in his college career. Like Ross, Willis also brings speed. At 6-4 and 258, he ran the fastest 40 (4.53) of all defensive linemen at the Combine.
Elliott was the first kicker drafted by the Bengals in 15 years. He was his school’s all-time leading scorer and set several records for field goals made in total and from 50 yards or more. He made 21 of 26 field goals in 2016.
