Joe Reedy: First-Round Mock Draft 2.0

The Cincinnati Enquirer's Joe Reedy completed the second version of his first-round mock draft. In his first mock, Reedy selected Georgia wide receiver A.J. Green for the Bengals with the No. 4 overall pick. Will history repeat itself or will Reedy select somebody new for Cincinnati?

While Reedy selected Auburn quarterback Cam Newton for Carolina in his first mock draft, he decided to draft the same position but a different player for the Panthers: Missouri quarterback Blaine Gabbert. Denver, however, got the same player from Reedy in this version of his mock draft that they did from the first: Alabama defensive tackle Marcell Dareus. In the Enquirer's first version, the Bills selected Texas A&M linebacker Von Miller. In version 2.0, though, Reedy has the Bills selecting Auburn quarterback Cam Newton.

Then, with the No. 4 overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft, Reedy believes the Cincinnati Bengals will select.....

South Carolina Full Back Patrick DiMarco.

I'm just joking.... it was just a terrible, terrible joke. Don't throw your computer through the office window just yet.

With the No. 4 overall pick in the 2011 daft, Reedy selects the same guy for the Bengals that he did in his first mock draft -- Georgia wide receiver A.J. Green.

The one thing that remains the same though is who we have the Bengals selecting, which is due to one important factor — both Blaine Gabbert and Cam Newton are off the board to Carolina and Buffalo.

While there have been a lot of discussions over the past week about Alabama’s Julio Jones going to the Bengals, we still think at this time that it is a reach. The more prospects come to town though to visit, the clearer the draft picture should develop. However with the Panthers and Bills still weighing all their options, the first three picks before the Bengals go on the clock are anything but certain.

What do you think about the Enquirer's latest mock draft?
