With two weeks until the draft, there are still plenty of questions regarding the Cincinnati Bengals and what they might choose with the 21st pick.

The NFL Draft is almost upon us as analysts and fans continue to discuss what the Cincinnati Bengals should do in not only the first round but address in the later rounds as well. It seemed that the Bengals would be putting a line through another position of need with the visit of former San Francisco 49ers safety Eric Reid but he left without a deal following his Monday visit.

The offensive line continues to be the biggest area of need in the early rounds but some mock drafts still have the team taking other positions with their first pick. With a good group of interior linemen in this year’s draft, the team could wait till round two to start addressing the line and find playmakers at other positions like the defense.

We have looked at multiple options over the last couple of weeks outside of just the offensive line at guys that the Bengals could bring in with the 21st pick. Guys like Alabama defensive tackle Da’Ron Payne, Michigan defensive tackle Maurice Hurst, and others like LSU edge rusher Aldon Key and Colorado cornerback Isaiah Oliver.

Let’s take a look at some of your questions and comments that you readers had this week!
