Another Mock Draft From Bengals Gab

1.  Taylor Mays, Safety, USC:    With Eric Berry and Earl Thomas gone, the Bengals opt for Mays, a safety with ridiculous speed and athleticism.  Mays immediately upgrades the defensive backfield and provides another enforcer for Mike Zimmer’s defense.

2. Arrelious Benn, Wide Receiver, Illinois:  Benn adds a speedy downfield threat with good size to the team’s receiving corps in an ongoing effort to improve the team’s offensive firepower.

3a. Aaron Hernandez, Tight End, Florida:  Hernandez adds depth and potential to the woeful TE position.  Theoretically, between Hernandez and Coffman, the team can get one good young TE.

3b. Brandon Spikes, Inside Linebacker, Florida:  Spikes adds a future starter to Zimmer’s defense, and potential replacement for Dhani Jones.

4a. Mitch Petrus, Offensive Guard, Arkansas:  The Bengals nab a future starter at offensive guard and an understudy for Bobbie Williams.

4b. Jordan Shipley, Wide Receiver, Texas:  Shipley adds another tough player to the offensive side of the ball, and a potential slot guy that can move the chains.  Palmer will love this guy.

5. Clifton Geathers, Defensive End, South Carolina:  The team brings in another “jumpy” and aggressive defensive lineman and pass rusher.

6. Al Woods, Defensive Tackle, LSU:  This 300-plus pound mauler adds depth in the defensive tackle rotation.  He’ll learn behind Peko, Tank, and Sims in 2010.

7.  Garrett Graham, Fullback/Tight End, Wisconsin:  The Bengals grab Graham as a late round steal, who can contribute as TE, FB, or on special teams.  With the team not likely to bring back Jeremi Johnson, and with Fui Vakapuna unproven, the hard nosed Graham could potentially start early in his career.
