Build your own Bengals' Mock Draft...


To do a mock draft, you really have to have an idea of who will be taken before your team picks, so you know who to take for your team (the Bengals). i took a look at about a dozen reputable mock drafts (that have all been updated in APril) and compiled the top 16 picks to get a reasonable idea of who is projected/expected to be gone before the Bengals make selection 1a. And then i looked at the next 3 guys off the board to see who is left at pick 1b.

.

Below are the names and average draft position of the top 16 guys taken when averaging a dozen or so mock drafts. So safely assume that all these guys are likely gone when the Bengals make pick 1a.

1 - A LUCK (1.0) QB

2 - RGIII (2.0) QB

3 - M KALIL (3.4) OT

4 - T RICHARDSON (4.3) RB

5 - M CLAIBORNE (5.0) CB

6 - J BLACKMON (6.1) WR

7 - R TANNENHILL (7.3) QB

8 - Q COPLES (10.0) DE

9 - D POE (10.6) DT

10 - M INGRAM (11.0) DE

11 - F COX (11.1) DT

12 - R REIFF (12.0) OT

13 - D DECASTRO (12.9) OG

14 - M FLOYD (13.6) WR

15 - L KUECHLY (14.7) ILB

16 - D KIRKPATRICK (18.1) CB
.

Then the Bengals get to make a selection at 17, and the next 3 guys go off the boards. Per the dozen or so mock drafts, the next 3 guys who go average to be. So safely assume that these guys are additionally gone when the Bengals make pick 1b.

17 - C UPSHAW (18.4) OLB

18 - C GLENN (18.7) OG

19 - S GILMORE (19.7) CB

.

So what does that leave the Bengals?

.

Group A - Guys who will be available at pick 17:

DB - S Gilmore, M Barron, J Jenkins

O Line - C Glenn, J Martin, P Konz, M Adams

WR - K Wright, S Hill, A Jeffery, R Randle

D Line - M Brockers, W Mercilus, D Still, A Branch, N Perry

LB - C Upshaw, D Hightower

RB - D Martin, L Miller, D Wilson

.

Group B - guys who will be available at pick 21:

DB - M Barron, J Jenkins

O Line - J Martin, P Konz, M Adams

WR - K Wright, S Hill, A Jeffery, R Randle

D Line - M Brockers, W Mercilus, D Still, A Branch, N Perry

LB - D Hightower

RB - D Martin, L Miller, D Wilson

So you can reasonably assume that for the Bengals, you can either take 1 guy from Group A and 1 guy from Group B, or 2 guys from Group B.
