I love all sports but I think everyone knows football is my favorite. I love everything about it and one of my favorite things during the offseason is the NFL draft. I love the events around it. I love that the draft is being talked about for the next season the day it ends.
I'm not a fan of the mock drafts that's probably the only thing I don't find fun about the whole thing, but I do like what Mike Mayock says so here's his.
I'm going to give a quick summary of what positions I think the Bengals take. I know a lot of people want Bengals to do so many different things with one of the 1st round picks. I think the Bengals keep that 17 and 21st without doing a thing.
If I played GM for day for the club I think I would take a CB at 17 and at 21 go with an OL guy. I'd love to get another wideout on the other side of AJ Green because they club does need a number 2 guy, but I think I'd take someone on the line first.
Second round which part of me doesn't think he'll fall that far so he may not be available but if Pead is there in the second the Bengals should take him. Third round I'd take a wideout some not a fan of taking a wide reciever in the third but the Bengals did it in 2010 and despite getting injured last season Jordan Shipley has been a great addition and great slot guy.
The draft for the Bengals is really a win-win situation. They need help in several areas so whoever they pick up in the first and second they'll be great addition and add to the depth they need at other spots.
