Bengals boast two of NFL’s top players under 25 years old at PFF


A younger core of superstars has already uplifted the Cincinnati Bengals to contention sooner than expected.

The 2 guys that headline said core, after all, are Joe Burrow and Ja’Marr Chase.

Interestingly, it’s Chase and Tee Higgins who occur to be the one Bengals representatives on Pro Football Focus’ Top 25 players under 25 years old going into the 2022 season.

Chase checks in at No. 7, with Trevor Sikkema noting the next:

“Chase’s rookie season was beyond well worth the Bengals choosing him at No. 5 overall. Reunited with quarterback Joe Burrow, Chase ranked fourth within the NFL in receiving yards (1,455) and third in receiving touchdowns (13). Few receivers within the league could say they were more dominant in one-on-one situations than him. His presence was a significant catalyst for Cincinnati winning the AFC Championship and making it to the Super Bowl.”

Higgins landed nineteenth:

“His PFF grade took a pleasant jump from 75.9 as a rookie to 84.5 this past season. He also finished strong with a ton of momentum going into 2022, as he recorded 100 receiving yards in 4 of his final six regular-season games and had back-to-back 100-yard games within the AFC Championship and Super Bowl.”

Burrow turns 26 in December, which could play an element within the omission here. Only Justin Herbert (2) and Trevor Lawrence (21) are the opposite quarterbacks to make the list.

Chase finally ends up because the second wideout behind Justin Jefferson (5).

Looking ahead, the Bengals surely hope names like rookies Dax Hill and Cam Taylor-Britt, and even Jonah Williams, can take steps to make future lists.
