Mock Draft 2014: Todd McShay sticks with cornerback

May 11, the day after the NFL draft, is when mock drafts will stop infiltrating our lives. But the numbers say that you like them. So here's Todd McShay's latest.

There are days in the year that I (and you as well) celebrate with total conviction. Christmas (or your respective religious holiday). Thanksgiving... actually holidays that end with having a day off from work can apply to this flier. Birthdays, anniversaries, Reds opening day, are obvious. Let's add another. The NFL Draft. Because that's the day that mock drafts go on hiatus (save for a few 2015 mock drafts that will feature players eligible in the next 362 days).

ESPN Draft analyst/guru/expert Todd McShay released another mock draft, shifting his perspective from whom he believes teams will pick to whom he believes that teams should pick.

The Bengals. It's a cornerback.

24. Cincinnati Bengals: Kyle Fuller, CB, Virginia Tech
The Bengals are in a really good position in terms of their roster, so they don't have to address a need here and will be freed up to take the best player available. But in this situation, it just so happens that several cornerbacks are among the top remaining prospects on my board, making Fuller an easy choice. He is simply a really good football player, with good size and playmaking ability, and he is very good in run support. The Bengals have some depth issues at corner, and Fuller's presence would help shore things up.
