2013 Fansided NFL Mock Draft: The Cincinnati Bengals Select…

The latest Fansided NFL Mock Draft is out, and for the first time, the Cincinnati Bengals are going cornerback with their first selection at pick #21:

 21. Cincinnati Bengals – Desmond Trufant, CB/Washington

Cornerback is, at the moment, one of the hottest positions in the NFL Draft. From Dee Milliner on down, the list of names is becoming more and more recognizable and talented as we approach the draft. The Bengals need serious help at linebacker, but locking down the secondary isn’t a bad route to go. Stopping the run game is a goal for the Bengals, but it becomes a lot easier when you force runs by taking the passing game out of the equation.

 

I like this pick if the Bengals don’t re-sign Adam Jones or Terence Newman, and their suddenly left with just Leon Hall and Dre Kirkpatrick. Trufant has the potential to be a lockdown corner, and in today’s pass-happy NFL, it’s a requirement to have three legitimate corners. This pick gives the Bengals just that.
