CJ Mosley, LB, Alabama

One of the best linebackers in the draft, it may not seem like he will fall to the Bengals. However, Eifert fell to the Bengals last year, so anything can happen.

Mosley is a hard-hitting linebacker who keeps his eye on the ball and does whatever he can to make the play. Rarely making mental mistakes, Mosley is fundamentally sound as a linebacker.

Uses his length well and always wraps up the ball-carrier, there are little flaws with his game. The Bengals new defensive coordinator, Paul Guenther, was once the linebacker coach and has gotten a lot out of his linebackers.

Mosley can also play coverage well, so he adds that dimension. If Mosley is there, the Bengals would be hard-pressed not to take him.

    I would not use a first round pick on a corner back. Too risky. Look what happened with Dre, a bust. Need to select a linebacker.
