The Bengals will finish with another losing season, shrouded in coaching rumors and a pile of question marks.

But they have found their No. 1 cornerback.

A first rounder two seasons ago, William Jackson III isn’t just the Bengals’ best secondary player, but arguably the best in the NFL.

It’s unclear if the Bengals will decide to rebuild or retool under a new coaching staff. Either way, they have a pillar in the secondary. Jackson is a pretty nice start.
