Pro Football Network’s Nick Farabaugh joins me to discuss the NFL Draft and defensive front players who could be a good fit for the Bengals.

We start out with the defensive line. The addition of D.J. Reader is a big help, but the Bengals often have 3 interior defensive linemen on the field at once. Who in the draft could help this group out?

The Bengals also have a need at edge. They currently only have three on the roster, so depth is a definite concern, but you can never have enough guys who can rush the passer. Nick tells us about some talented players in this year’s draft who would be a great fit for the Bengals defense.

Of course linebacker is a huge need defensively. Nick talks some of his favorite options at the position.

All of the film review content will be on SB Nation’s Cincy Jungle podcast channel, along with the other episodes of The Orange and Black Insider. “Orange is the New Black” is another great podcast from Ace Boogie and Zim WhoDey on our channel. Thanks for listening!
