Profootballspot.com’s Simon Green went a third way, and probably one that is the most expected way.

"Malcom Brown, defensive tackle from Texas, is currently one of the top interior lineman prospects in this years’ NFL draft. A 2014 finalist for both the Bronko Nagurski Trophy and the Outland Trophy, which recognize the country’s top defensive player and defensive interior lineman, Brown earned 2014 All-American honors from Walter Camp, AP, FWAA, Sporting News, CBS Sports, USA Today and ESPN.com."

Rebuilding the defensive pass rush should be priority number one and the Bengals going with Brown or Alvin Dupree would be the way to go. This would definitely give the Bengals’ fan base reason to believe that they could actually be looking to improve instead of investing in another hopeless draft pick.

Regardless of how the Bengals pick, it will be interesting to see how these mock drafts change as we get closer to the combine and the 2015 NFL Draft.
