The way the preseason started off last year for the Bengals it sure looked like we could have gone 0-16.  But Marvin Lewis and Jay Gruden had all the confidence in the world in Andy Dalton to lead the team.  Dalton has the luxury to throw to the AFC North’s best receiver A.J. Green.  But Cincinnati will be looking to add another playmaker to the offense.  With two first rounders the Bengals can address two of their top three needs immediately.

With this draft being stacked with receivers I think the Bengals can find value in the second or third round.  With the chemistry Green and Dalton showed last season, it sure looks like the sky is the limit.  Protecting Dalton in the pocket becomes a huge concern and something that needs to be addressed sooner than later.


Needs: O-Line, Wide Receiver, D-Line


Round 1, Pick 17- Courtney Upshaw OLB/DE, Alabama
