Redrafting the 2013 NFL draft class

We're navigating through the offseason with various hypotheticals to spur fun debates.

Who doesn't like an NFL draft redux, after the 2013 NFL rookies had played their first season respectively.

So the question, in this mythical world of boredom that encapsulates the offseason, who would the Bengals select in an NFL draft redux and how many Bengals selected in the 2013 NFL draft would be selected?

Don Banks with Sports Illustrated gave Cincinnati tight end Jordan Reed, knocking Tyler Eifert out of the first round.

Reed had an injury-shortened rookie season and was lost due to a concussion suffered in Week 11. But he emerged as one of Robert Griffin III's favorite targets with 45 catches for 499 yards, and his blend of receiving talent and decent blocking ability was unmatched by any other rookie tight end.

Bengals running back Giovani Bernard goes No. 26 to the Green Bay Packers.

The top-five in Banks' redraft:

1) Chiefs - DT Sheldon Richardson
2) Jaguars - WR Keenan Allen
3) Dolphins - OG Larry Warford
4) Eagles - OT D.J. Fluker
5) Lions - DT Ziggy Ansah
