Joe Reedy mocks that the Bengals will draft Jermaine Gresham. I'm still not sure that the Bengals will draft a tight end in the first round, or even the second round. I agree that the team needs someone to make a difference in the passing game, but have the Bengals ever shown an urgency to really showcase a tight end for more than blocking someone? Again. I agree, Cincinnati needs an effective tight end in the passing game. However, I just don't think the Bengals will draft someone in the first round to achieve that.
