Armed with the No. 1 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, the Cincinnati Bengals will almost certainly be selecting Joe Burrow come draft day. However, their plans at the top of the second round appear much less clear.

With that in mind, let's take a look at three stars that could fall to Cincinnati at the top of Round 2.

1. Denzel Mims

Denzel Mims is one of the most athletic wide receivers available in the 2020 NFL Draft. He posted top-5 numbers among receivers in the 40-yard dash (4.38 seconds) and the broad jump (131.0 inches) and even had the best time in the 3-cone drill (6.66 seconds). However, he's available at +116 to fall out of the first round, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. If he's on the board at pick No. 33, he'd be an excellent addition to the Bengals' WR corps.

2. Austin Jackson

Austin Jackson is another prospect with some high upside, thanks to his impressive athletic ability. He had a 115-inch broad jump at the combine, tying him for the third-best result at the position. If he falls out of the first, which is loaded with talent at the tackle position, he could really help shore up Cincinnati's O-Line.

3. Tee Higgins

Tee Higgins played against Burrow in the national championship, but he could really help if the two were to join forces in Cincinnati. He's had at least 900 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns in back-to-back seasons, and he's coming off a 1,167-yard, 13-TD campaign. Sporting -176 to fall out of the first round, Higgins could help round out this receiving corps.
