Ok Gals and Boys. Here is my super duper mock draft. I hope it goes a little something like this:
21: ILB Kevin Minter, LSU
Arguably Cincinnati's biggest need, linebacker. There is no 1st round value for an outside linebacker in the 1st round except Jarvis Jones and C.J. Mosley who is not entering the draft. This pick makes sense since Burfict can play on the outside perfectly well.
37: C Barret Jones, Alabama
We could very well take a safety or a running back with this pick. I like Barret Jones' versatility. He can compete right away for the starting center job or he can play any other position on the line if the other starters don't work out. Our O-line was way overrated this past year as we were one of the most sacked teams of the league.
52: RB Eddie Lacy, Alabama
We need a star at running back. Green-Ellis showed flashes but is not the answer as our starting running back. We could be deadly with Lacy and Green-Ellis in our backfield. Lacy might not be on the board at this point since he had an excellent BCS championship. We could take Andre Ellington instead.
84: FS TJ McDonald, USC
We need depth at safety since none of our recent draftees have worked out. This guy could be a steal in the 3rd. Great instincts and aggression.
After this we could find a tight end that might put some pressure on Gresham, a shifty running back and a corner back.
