Todd McShay 3.0 Mock Draft: Bengals select Virginia Tech CB Kyle Fuller

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

Mock, mock, mock. Most people have the Bengals selecting cornerback in the first round, including McShay.

ESPN Draft analyst Todd McShay released his third mock draft to date, leading to the 2014 NFL draft. In his 2.0 mock, released in February 6, 2014, McShay selected Florida State cornerback Lamarcus Joyner writing that he "lacks elite size but he is a quick, fast, instinctive defensive back who plays bigger than his size, and could play a Tyrann Mathieu role for this defense."

One month later, McShay stayed with cornerback but selecting Virginia Tech cornerback Kyle Fuller.

The Bengals need a cornerback, and Fuller is a guy who turned some heads with his combine performance. The two big question marks on him had been speed and durability, but then he ran a 4.49 40 and, from what I heard, teams didn't come away with any concerns about his durability. He has good size (6-foot) and long arms and proved to be an explosive athlete based on his test results.

I'd only add that "need" is a bit of a stretch... but failing to address the position today will create a bigger need down the road. Cincinnati still has options at other position if they feel a better a value exists at that selection.
