Round 1. Justin Gilbert CB Oklahoma
With cornerback being one of our biggest needs, I have us drafting Gilbert in the 1st round. He is currently ranked 2nd in the nation, behind Darqueze Dennard from Michigan State.
Round 2. Weston Richburg C Colorado State
A potential replacement for Kyle Cook and a needed upgrade for the Center position. The 6'4 and 300 lb senior from CSU is considered to be one of the best center prospects in the upcoming draft.
Round 3. Tajh Boyd QB Clemson
Tajh Boyd would be drafted for the backup position but hopefully becomes the starter, similar to the Kapernick situation with the 49ers. I highly doubt that we are going to trade up for anybody, especially a QB, but if Manziel falls to us I don't think that the Bengals organization would pass that up.
Round 4. Andre Williams RB Boston College
Williams seems like the perfect player for Hue Jackson to start his project on. He averaged over 6 yards per carry on 355 attempts during his senior year at Boston College. Giving us a backfield tandem of Bernard and Williams, as well as a dual threat offense.
Round 5. James Gayle DE Virginia Tech
Because of our defensive scheme he would be playing OLB, instead of playing the defensive end position. Coming out of Virginia Tech, he led his team with 34 hurries, also adding 44 tackles, 10.5 for loss, and 6.0 sacks. At the OLB position and with our coaches, I believe that he will excel at the next level.
Round 6. Sean Parker S Washington
Parker emerged as a starter at strong safety last season, he recorded 91 tackles and four interceptions. Parker can also be placed in the nickel cornerback position showcasing his versatility.
Round 7. Andrew Norwell OG Ohio State
Norwell plays both offensive guard and tackle positions. Giving the Bengals more depth on the offensive line.
Isaiah Crowell RB Alabama State
Crowell a good RB fallen because of off field issues similar to Vontaze. Hopefully Marvin and Hue can turn him into a future star in the a league.
Keith Smith LB San Jose State
Smith lead the nation in tackles with 159 tackles and with a 13.2 per game average. Playing at SJSU Smith isn't getting as much recognition as he deserves.
