NFL Mock Draft: Who Fits the Bengals’ Needs?

1 of 3

The Cincinnati Bengals have plenty of time to decide what players they could draft in next May’s NFL Draft, but it’s always fun to look at which players may fit their needs the best. And with the bowl season approaching fast, getting an idea of what players the Bengals could scout will help you to know what to watch in what bowl games.

Sayre Bedinger of NFL Mocks thinks the Bengals may stay in the state of Ohio and nab linebacker Ryan Shazier out of Ohio State:

"Shazier is a dynamic athlete at the LB position, where the Bengals could look to replace James Harrison next offseason and add some depth to their LB group. Cincy doesn’t have a ton of pressing needs, but in looking at available safeties I couldn’t find any to realistically project in this slot."
