Howdy.

In the process of preparing my mock drafts for the next six weeks. What would you say are the three or four most pressing needs for your team ranked in order of most to least?

Thanks!

LT
RG
C
RT

But in reality the Bengals feel comfortable with the poop they're going to roll out for those positions, so it's more like:

WR
LB
DE
OL

I would say round 1 they will probably go BPA.
After that:
DE
OG
WR
RB
LB

1. DE (2 of them)
2. Backup/developing Offensive linemen
3. Speed at LB
4. #2 WR for the long term
5. 1-2 RBs and one must be a special teams contributer

I want Gonzales, but with Bullock, I wouldn't say kicker is a top need. But it is a need. The team kept Driskell over another position player, so maybe/maybe not.

Not sure if sarcasm was involved with CB, and knowing you it was, but if you were serious, we have Kirkpatrick, Jackson, Dennard, Shaw, Russell, and Bene, plus the last time I checked, Jones was also still here. No room at the inn for CBs.

Those last three are pretty replaceable. Always draft a corner.

We need Another LT, we think it needs to be a starting LT, but the Bengals think it needs to be a depth/development LT. We need one more body at minimum.

I think will take at least 1 safety ,but probably not until day 3

We need one defensive end at minimum, preferably a Starting RE in round 1 or 2. I could really see us taking 2 in the draft.

I think we'll take at least one interior offensive lineman

We need at least One LB, preferably a starting caliber one in rounds 1-3

If Adam Jones gets cut then we'd need at least One CB

With Lafell back we'll take a WR in round 1 or 2 or not at all

We'll definitely take at least one running back, possibly 2 or 3 if we trade Hill which is a rumor I've heard.

I won't be shocked if we take a QB on day three, even if we don't trade McCarron

I could see us taking a TE any time after round one if the value is there, but it's not a must

Sooooooooooo, my needs list would likely stack up like :

RDE
LB
LT
RB
S
G/C
RB (special teams)
TE
CB
QB

Our biggest needs are at LT where we'll hope one of the 3rd year guys steps up, RG where we'll need to draft someone, and pass rushers.

So for the draft, it's:

DE
RG
LB
DT
CB
S
RB
K
