Bengals go Cornerback in Rotoworld NFL Mock Draft

Mike Carter-USA TODAY Sports

The Bengals go with arguably the best cornerback in the draft in Evan Silva's first mock draft.

As the mock draft season rolls on, the Bengals continue to select a cornerback in the majority of mocks. The first one from Evan Silva of Rotoworld has the Bengals getting arguably the best one in this year' draft in Michigan State's Darqueze Dennard:

Cornerback is Cincinnati's biggest need on either side of the ball as Leon Hall rehabs his second Achilles' tear in three seasons, and Terence Newman and Pacman Jones creep further into their 30s. 2012 first-round pick Dre Kirkpatrick has been a major disappointment. Dennard is a scheme fit for the Bengals as the premier press corner in this year's class. He would be a day-one starter.

It is also worth pointing out that he has Oklahoma State's Justin Gilbert getting selected with the very next pick to the San Diego Chargers. In other words, Silva thinks that the two best corners in this year's draft will be on the board when the Bengals pick at No. 24.

I respectfully disagree with him. The Bengals would be extremely lucky to have just one of those two on the board when they make their selection, and there's a good chance both will be off the board by then.
