Linebackers (6)

Preston Brown, Nick Vigil, Germaine Pratt, Deshaun Davis, Jordan Evans & Hardy Nickerson  

The Bengals most significant need after last year was at the linebacker position.

Despite this, the team did not add any linebackers in free agency and cut longtime starter Vontaze Burfict.

Instead of adding veteran talent,  the team decided to draft a pair of linebackers in Germaine Pratt and Deshaun Davis who both had impressive college careers and are potential starters.

In addition, the team will return Preston Brown and Nick Vigil as slam dunks to make the team Jordan Evans and Hardy Nickerson are also well position to make the squad.
