The Bengals addressed the CB and OG positions in the first-round, and now the Bengal’s biggest need is finding a #2 WR, as the team has only one proven WR in A.J. Green. Jordan Shipley and Andrew Hawkins are slot receivers, and Armon Binns is unproven, and the Bengals will take a gamble on one of the draft’s biggest boom-or-bust prospects in Stephen Hill. The Georgia Tech product was consistent deep threat atGeorgia, and his blazing speed will allow him to stretch the field and keep double-teams off of A.J. Green. Hill averaged nearly 30 yards per reception last season, and Andy Dalton will be salivating at the thought of having Hill, Green, Shipley, and TE Jermaine Gresham to air it out to.
