With the recent losses of Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu, the Cincinnati Bengals are going to be in the market for a few wideouts this upcoming draft.  Marvin Jones received a five-year 40 million dollar deal with the Detroit Lions, and Mohamed Sanu received a five-year 32.5 million dollar deal with the Atlanta Falcons.  Brandon Tate did resign with the Bengals, but he is no more than a number three.  Mike Brown, Katie Blackburn, and Marvin Lewis do a great job of keeping the Bengals with a healthy cap and developing through the draft.

The Bengals have one of the deepest rosters in the NFL, but there will always be needs for a team.  This year, the Bengals have 4 needs that can be addressed through the draft.  Defensive tackle and wide receiver are two glaring needs while a center and a cornerback could strengthen the team.  The Bengals did resign Adam Jones, but in the pass heavy league today you can never have enough corners.

Andy Dalton is on the rise and an added surrounding cast could get the Bengals over the hump and make a run for the Superbowl.  We are going to take a close look at the options that the Bengals could go with in the first round.  The Bengals will be the 24th team to pick in the draft, and have 7 picks total (no compensatory picks were rewarded).
