The Cincinnati Bengals have been focused on the draft for quite some time now, but with the NFL season officially over, the rest of the football world joins them. Here, we detail a 7 round mock draft for the Bengals.
It’s an extremely exciting time to be a Cincinnati Bengals fan. With the number one overall pick, the ability to create plenty of cap space, and some talented pieces already in place, Zac Taylor and company have the resources they need to take a major leap next year.
Fans just witnessed a season where the San Francisco 49ers went from four wins to a Super Bowl run the very next year. While it’s unlikely the Bengals will experience that quick of a turnaround, it still provides hope for the faithful fans.
As things stand, the Bengal’s biggest needs beyond quarterback lie within the offensive line and linebacker rooms. The hope is the front office will get a player or two at each position before April rolls around, allowing them to select the best prospect available rather than drafting for need.
No matter what the Bengals do or don’t do in free agency, they have a ton of draft capital to make their team significantly better going into next season. This draft class will undoubtedly serve as the foundation of the future in Cincinnati.
