It all depends on DeCastro.

In my view, the Bengals have an easy draft. There is no need to overthink this. DeCastro is the key. The first three picks should hinge on whether DeCastro is available or not.

1. If DeCastro is available at 17, you don't hesitate, you draft him. Guard is our biggest need. With your second pick you have to take the best available CORNER BACK. That is our 2nd biggest need. You have tremendous value at 21 for a CB. Dennard, Jenkins, Minnifield, and even Kirkpatrick could be available. Your second round pick is a no brainer. Take the best available RUNNING BACK. Again, tremendous value there. Polk, Wilson, Martin should all be available and should all be great starting backs in the NFL.

2. If DeCastro isn't avaialable, then you draft best available CORNER BACK with your first pick and Lamar Miller with your second pick. The thinking here is that there isn't any other guard that has value in the 1st round. With your third pick you take any second tier guard which should be solid starters in the NFL. Glenn, Osemele, Zeitler.

Any of these two scenarios will be great value AND need picks. We should be ok with any of these two. That's as easy as it should get for our first 3 picks of the draft.
