Biggest Needs

Safety

Offensive Tackle

Linebacker

Running Back

With Andre Smith still unsigned, offensive tackle is clearly the biggest need here, but Florida State’s Menelik Watson would be quite a reach at pick #21. In this case, the Bengals will almost certainly go linebacker or safety. With Manti Te’o and Alec Ogletree on the board, Cincinnati could draft arguably the best linebacker prospect, or they could go with FIU’s Jonathan Cyprien to fill a gaping hole at safety.

Either way, if this is how the board plays out next Thursday, the Bengals will have several impact players on the board who can come in and start opening day this season.

Previous Pick: Chicago Bears- Arthur Brown, LB, Kansas State

Next Up: St. Louis Rams
