CINCINNATI (WKYT) -- With the No. 65 pick and the first pick in the third round of the 2020 NFL Draft, the Cincinnati Bengals drafted Wyoming linebacker Logan Wilson.

Wilson finished with 400-plus tackles and 10 career interceptions, while displaying impressive skills as a run-and-chase player.

Head coach Zac Taylor said his defensive coaches held their breath all day, calling him a three-down player with hybrid abilities in coverage. They saw plenty of him when they coached against him at the Senior Bowl.
