Mock 2 with us picking later in the round.
Bengals 2013 Mock Draft
1. Eric Reid Safety LSU An immediate upgrade over Crocker and a starter from day one. He is the best safety in the draft and he fills a position of need.
2A. Alex Okafor DE Texas I think we resign M. Johnson but R. Geathers has never produced to the level of his contract. If we can resign W. Gilberry and draft Okafor we will be set to let Geather walk.
2B. Khaseem Greene OLB Rutgers The man is a tackling machine. Big East defensive player of the year as a junior and followed that up with a just as impressive senior season. He can come right in and replace Lawson. Move Burfict to MLB and have Howard on the other side.
3. Marcus Lattimore RB South Carolina This might not be a popular pick around here but we are solid at some many other positions that we can afford to take a risk here. Willis McGahee was drafted in the first round and had a very productive career after a similar injury. Letís go for some upside and hope that we get a first round talent out of him.
4. Terry Hawthorne CB Illinois His man is a flat out athlete. Rated as the #1 WR prospect coming out of high school. He is the best athlete when he is on the field. He returns punts & kickoffs for Illinois. Bye-Bye Tate! Say goodbye to Allen and Newman, plus Clements isnít getting any younger.
5. Tavarres King WR Georgia 6-1 200 lbs King will fight for the final WR spot on the roster or replace a guy like Binns on the practice squad. Another Georgia Bulldog for us to groom.
6. Dustin Hopkins Kicker FSU Hopkins is the best kicker I have seen in the last 3-4 drafts. Nugent is currently being out kicked by a kicker off the street. It is time for a long term solution.
7. Travis Howard CB Ohio State University Howard is a long-rangy 6-1 200 lbs CB who will provide us with some youth at the CB position. He will start his career on the practice squad but provides upside to our aging secondary.
What do you think?
Who Dey & Go Bucks
The Bengals are going to the Super Bowl.
