The Bengals have been connected to Penei Sewell for months, but what happens if they don't take the Oregon offensive lineman with the fifth pick?
NFL insider Jeremy Fowler believes the Panthers will seriously consider him at No. 8.
"If Oregon tackle Penei Sewell is there, they also really like him so they could either take him or trade him back with some other teams that have done a lot of research on him like the Giants at 11 or the Chargers at 13," Fowler said.
If the Bengals pass on Sewell, then he could fall out of the top 10. The Dolphins are expected to take a playmaker at No. 6. The Lions could also use an offensive weapon with the seventh selection.
