Default Mock Draft Help

I'm working on putting together a couple ideas for mock drafts and wanted to get your opinions on your pick. You're far enough down in the draft that it's hard to say who will/should be available, so I'll just say who's available at this point. On my mock I'm currently working on, the top few players available are:
Alan Branch (yes he's fallen this far, you guys could definitely be interested as you're a little thin at DTs, and your best one is definitely on the downswing of his career).
Darrelle Revis/Chris Houston (top two CBs available, you could use some help here although you did take Johnathan Joseph in the 1st last year, so that might downgrade the priority a bit).
Jarvis Moss (would be a nice DE addition for you)
Michael Griffin (best S available as Landry and Nelson are gone, would be a nice addition but probably not the most valuable guy for this pick)
Paul Posluszny (best LB available)

Of those guys, who would you pick (or who do you think the Bengals would actually pick). My current inclination would likely be Alan Branch, even though Moss, Revis, or Houston may be a bit bigger of a need. Any comments?

Moss I don't see happening... Just not that great of a physical freak and DE isn't a big need.

Griffin we all pretty much like, just not sure we'll go that route at 18.

Revis/Houston/Branch are all solid picks in that situation.

I would take Houston over Revis also. But if Branch is there, we would have to take him.

Revis or Branch. Although Branch looks very attractive, I think Revis is more of a need for us. We got Peko in rd 4 last year and he's been superb.

Default Who do Draft?

Revis over Houston if we pick at 18 (Houston has played well against top WR's, but he has not shown a willingness to support the run or be physical enough with the bigger stronger WR's)
Griffin if you can trade down to the mid-20's

Houston is very strong tho and likely can add some weight. I think he benched over 400 lbs. I do like Hall or Revis better tho.
