2013 NFL Mock Draft: The Cincinnati Bengals Select…

This week’s edition of the Fansided Mock Draft is out.

Despite having one of league’s best defenses, we’ve had the Bengals going defense in the first round. Our first projection had the Bengals selecting Oregon defensive end/linebacker Dion Jordan. The next and most resent edition had them drafting LSU defensive end Sam Montgomery.

Now it’s time for our latest projection:

Note: This is a mock based on last week’s standing, where the Bengals would have drafted from the 18th spot.

With the 18th pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, the Cincinnati Bengals select:

Kenny Vaccaro, Safety, Texas

The Bengals have had issues at safety for awhile now, but they have managed to get by. This would be the year to add a talent like Vaccaro to a major area of need. Cincinnati would also like to add a pass rusher, but in this scenario, most of the top pass rushing talents have been taken off the board and anyone else would be considered a reach. Vaccaro brings the best value.

 

That’s our latest pick. What do you guys think? Leave your comments and let us know.
