Booger McFarland slams Bengals for not drafting offensive lineman 1st

Booger McFarland felt so strongly that the Cincinnati Bengals should select an offensive lineman with their first-round pick Thursday night in the 2021 NFL Draft that McFarland said during ESPN's coverage that it would be "malpractice" to take a player that couldn't protect quarterback Joe Burrow.

"If they don't draft an offensive lineman, they're committing malpractice," McFarland said before NFL commissioner Roger Goodell announced the Bengals' pick. "The last time we saw Joe Burrow, his knee was going the wrong way. You have to protect your franchise quarterback. They have to take an offensive lineman."

The Bengals took LSU receiver Ja'Marr Chase at No. 5. The Detroit Lions took Oregon offensive tackle Penei Sewell two picks later at No. 7.
