Bengals Mock Draft (how to become a Contender)




At 7-6 the Bengals still have a lot of room to grow and improve, also the Bengals are still missing some pieces

Free Agents the Bengals should give a look

Offense

Carl Nicks OG Saints

Ben Grubbs OT Ravens

Mike Wallace WR Steelers

Marques Colston WR Saints

Robert Meachem WR Saints

DeSean Jackson WR Eagles

Mario Manningham WR Giants

Pierre Garcon WR Colts

Harry Douglas WR Falcons

Ted Ginn Jr WR 49ers

Lavelle Hawkins WR Titans

Michael Bush RB Raiders

Ray Rice RB Ravens

Matt Forte RB Bears

Josh Johnson QB Buccaneers

Drew Brees QB Saints(notable)

Overview

On Offense, the Bengals should really address the O-line position and the #2 WR spot. I personally think Jerome can play, but the guy just need to be more consistence every weekend and he has the tools to be a 1b WR. Offensive Line is the big issue, the Bengals will have to at least get a guard in FA and maybe another through the Draft

Defense

Mario Williams DE/OLB Texans

Curtis Lofton LB Falcons

Geno Hayes LB Buccaneers

London Fletcher LB Redskins

Thomas DeCoud S Falcons

Cortland Finnegan DB Titans

Tracy Porter DB Saints

Aaron Ross DB Giants

Reggie Smith S 49ers

LaRon Landry S Redskins

Kareem Moore S Redskins

Overview

The Bengals dont need to really need to go into Free Agency and get a lot of pieces, they can really build through the draft on the Defensive side of the ball. They dont need to really to address the safety position until they get to see how Taylor Mays play.

Draft (My Thoughts)

Round 1: Lamar Miller RB Miami,FL "U"

Round 1: Trade Down/Away for 2nd 2012+future 2013 2nd round

Round 2: Chase Minnifield DB Virginia

Round 2: Xavier Rhodes DB Florida State

Round 3: Derek Wolfe DT Cincinnati

Round 4: Isaiah Pead RB Cincinnati

Round 5: Trumaine Johnson DB Montana

Round 5: Asa Jackson DB Cal Poly

Round 6: Jeff Demps RB Florida

Round 7: Philip Blake C Baylor

Overview

The Reason for trading down is that this year's draft class isnt as strong as People say it will, it is looking to be a weak draft so why not stock up some picks for next year and get the players you want, It will also be easier to make a move with more draft picks at hand.
