I am going to continue to mock Fuller because he makes the most sense unless one of the top tackles falls.  Fuller is a pro ready corner who would immediately compete for snaps on defense and be a key contributor on special teams.  A team captain with 42 career starts Fuller has a clean character and lots of experience. Even if Leon Hall is ready for week one I still like the selection of Fuller.

Round 2 Pick 23: Gabe Jackson, OG, Mississippi State

 6’3 336lbs and that is how you build an NFL guard for a power running game.  Should the Bengals come away with Jackson it would allow Andrew Whitworth to stay at LT and Jackson could step in a LG forming a monstrous left side. A four year starter Jackson’s football IQ is high, and he didn’t give up a single sack the last two years.

  • Ron Fulton

    All all the mock drafts I looked at, this was the worst. This would be caatastrophe for the Bengals.

    • Dustin Meritt

      What don’t you like about it Ron and which direction would you like to see the Bengals go?

      • Ron Fulton

        Most of the mock drafts have the Bengals taking a CB in the first round. I feel that is a mistake. With the exception of QB I believe a first rounder must come in and start. This will not happen with a CB. I believe they should draft a QB (Derek Carr), a defensive end or a linebacker in the first round. Second round should be what they didn’t take in the first round with a CB in mind, in case one of the top CB’s slips down to them. I would take Borland of Wisconsin in the second round if he is available. Third round on I would look for safety and CB.

        • Kenny Moore

          I agree about taking a LB over CB but Fuller is the best corner in the draft not to mention the most physical. The player I am hoping for is Anthony Barr at pick 24. I loved taking a OG in round two because if Hue wants to implement a smashmouth style of play the interior of the line needs a overhaul.

          • Ron Fulton

            I repeat was I already have said. No CB is going to start, and I believe a number 1 must start or it is a wasted pick.

          • Kenny Moore

            Fuller could start day 1.Who knows what Leon Hall can still do on the field. I am hoping that either Barr or Shazier are there at 24. LB is our biggest need in my opinion and both Barr and Shazier could start. Barr is a Aldon Smith type of player minus the off the field garbage. I love his nastiness and the way he plays the game. 6’6 255 impact LB who hits like a truck is what we need.

          • Ron Fulton

            I agree. But no CB. Second round.

          • Dustin Meritt

            What I see Ron is a secondary that is very aged and we can’t rely on Terrence Newman and Adam Jones much longer. We also have to remember that on average the Bengals play 50% of their downs with five defensive backs. Kyle Fuller would immediately become and asset on defense.

          • Dustin Meritt

            I will admit Kenny, Barr coming around the edge and smashing quarterbacks has me intrigued. I think fits a 3-4 better but sounds like a moldable kid and would be a moveable chess piece on defense. To me Gabe Jackson fits this team to the T, I believe he would be the starting left guard right away. He is a great run block but don’t overlook the face that he rarely gave up a sack in college. He or LSU’s Trai Tuner would be great fits.
