The Cincinnati Bengals went into the 2015 draft with nine draft picks. At first, I did not like all the Bengals draft selections; I will get into this later. Immediately following the draft, I gave the Bengals a C+. But once I sat down and analyzed their draft haul in depth my opinion changed; the Bengals actually had a pretty good draft. Cincinnati hit key positions in each round and I believe got starting-caliber talent throughout the draft.

As a reminder going into the draft the Bengals were in need of a pass rusher, defensive tackle, linebacker, offensive tackle, kick returner, tight end, and one could argue quarterback and safety. With that in mind, let’s check out how the Bengals did.
