Default The Mock to End All Mocks

1 DeAndre Hopkins WR Clemson

We had issues with the passing game. We need someone to take the pressure off AJ. Hopkins would be a tremendous asset.

2a Khaseem Greene WILL Rutgers

Probably the best WILL in the draft. He can cover. He can play the run. Solid tackler. Team Leader.

2b DJ Swearinger SS South Carolina

Like Greene, He can cover. He can play the run. Solid tackler. Team Leader.

3 Marcus Lattimore RB South Carolina

Worth the risk. Best RB in the draft.

4 Keith Pough SAM Howard

Maybe the best SAM candidate in the draft. Just a tremendous talent. Teamed with Burfict, & Greene, he'd help give us maybe the best young LB corps in the AFC.

5a Kerwynn Williams RB Utah State

A burner with great hands who can also return kicks.

5b Leon McFadden CB San Diego State

This kid's a baller who really impressed at the senior bowl with his physical style of play.

6a David Quessenberry G San Jose State

It never hurts to add depth. Quessenberry might even end up becoming a starter.

6b Marquis Goodwin WR Texas

Another burner. Improves depth at WR/KR/PR.

There is no way that Lattimore goes in the 3rd, he probably wont' get drafted due to that horrific injury.

I like it but that's a little early for DJ and honestly not a fan of the lattimore pick.

Pough is a good pick.

No way McFadden lasts that long IMO.

Goodwin is graded a 3rd rounder right now so I doubt he'd be there in the 6th. Look into Skye Dawson similar skill set who would be there.

with your mock I would take Franklin in the 3rd. DE Davis Bass would look good in there late also.

So, would the best approach be to not address a huge need, because it is a little early and then miss out on a starting calibre player?

Like RB in the Bengal's 2012 draft?

I am not saying that I am sold on Swearinger. But I am saying that I totally support fixing a 10 year problem (at least it seems that long) at the safety position.

Swearinger really impresses me. I'd be happy with most of the other safeties, but I think he's going to be a real presence in the secondary for someone. Might was well be us.

Swearinger is one of my favorite safeties in the draft. I just figure he'll be there in the 3rd.

His injury was no worse than McGahee's and he went in round 1.

I'd say they are about the same talent level if Lattimore isn't even more talented. I don't see him falling out of round 2 honestly.

I like it. Seems to me you filled all the needs with quality players and made both sides of the ball better.

Will Goodwin really last until the 6th? I like the way he runs the ball.

I selfishly hope it doesn't end all mocks, but if it did, this wouldn't be a bad place to stop.

I'd say swap Pough and Goodwin in your draft and it's more realistic.

This would be fantastic. Really like Hopkins and DJ picks. This is a deep WR class and we could get value later on, but Hopkins just balls out there. Im on board, lets get this to the FO.

I will have to disagree with the 1st round pick because you take BPA in round 1 and then fill needs later on.Vacarro and Ogletree are both rated higher on the sites I visited.

i think you need do do a little more research, Lattimore claims he will be rdy by the start of the season and ive actually seen several mocks with him going in the 3rd round, also have read a few pieces claiming he could go in the 2nd.


Oh and to the OP, not bad, I could get behind this draft

I find it ironic that we should only draft bpa but the 2 players you name are needs and often rated higher then our draft position

I certainly wouldn't be upset with this draft. There is always debate as to when and where a player should be drafted, but I say take the BPA at what you really need. That's the best way to build a complete team.

Love it, but...

- With the Bengals' history of backs (Ki-Jana, Perry, Irons), I can't see us taking Lattimore.

I'd be cool w/ it (especially with getting Williams later) but I just don't see it happening.

- I don't think McFadden will be there in the 5th.

Love the rest of it though. Especially Hopkins.
