Bengals Mock Draft Big Board 1/26: Gresham Leads But Wideouts Rule

Oklahoma TE Jermaine Gresham remains the player most-mocked to the Cincinnati Bengals in this, the second installment of our annual Bengals Mock Draft Big Board. But that’s only because the mockosphere can’t settle on a wide receiver with the 21st pick. Led by Oklahoma’s Dez Bryant and Illinois’ Arrelios Benn, the wideouts collectively draw twice as many votes as Gresham.

Assembled with the help of Walter’s excellent-as-usual mock draft database, I went through drafts updated since the Wild Card game for this update. The results:

Bengals Mock Draft Big Board
Pick Position School Votes Change
Jermaine Gresham TE Oklahoma 25 -2
Dez Bryant WR Oklahoma State 14 +11
Arrelios Benn WR Illinois 13 +7
Damien Williams WR USC 11 +2
Golden Tate WR Notre Dame 10 +2
Brandon LaFell WR LSU 8 -2
Taylor Mays FS Southern California 7 +4
Earl Thomas SS Texas 4 +2
Brian Price DT UCLA 2 +1
Carlos Dunlap DE Florida 2 -1
C.J. Spiller RB Clemson 2 -8
Mardy Gilyard WR Cincinnati 1 no change
Jerry Hughes DE TCU 1 no change
Dan Williams DT Tennessee 1 no change
Anthony Davis OT Rutgers 1 no change
Jared Odrick DT Penn State 1
Brian Bulaga OT Iowa 1
Aaron Hernandez TE Florida 1
Arthur Jones DT Syracuse 1 -1

By position, wide receiver leads with 57 nods (+20 versus the previous Big Board). After that, it’s 26 for TE (-1); 11 S (+6); 5 DT (-2); 2 DE (-9); 2 RB (-10); and 1 OT (no change).

    Once again the Bengals NEED to draft a tightend that is athletic with good hands whoever that may BE!he can be taught how to block,keep Coffmann and Foshi CUT the rest of that garbage either they can not catch or TO SOFT for the pro GAME.AND they have enough wideouts to develope from Caldwell to Simpson&Purify to Crosby who caught 85% of all BALLS thrown his way and he HAS AN EXCELLANT work etchics which creates discipline route runners and besides CHAD still gets the job done he just needs some help which he deserves.IF the bengals draft any position besides tightend in the first round IT MUST BE THE O-LINE PERIOD 3rd,4th 5TH ROUND and ON D-FENCES 1ST & 2ND Tightend and O-LINE and hell yea bring ODELL Back for the low-low he is a unique hard hitting talent that has a natural talent for the game.BAD desision maker BUT ONE HELL OF A TALENT.And he is HUMAN so he can CHANGE SO if he apreciates the oppertunity he has to play in the N.F.L HE WILL workout just as BENSON DID.
