I don’t have enough hair to be Mel Kiper, but I know the Bengals all too well. Here’s the draft board our team should use.
1. Patrick Peterson, LSU, defensive back
2. Marcell Dareus, Alabama, defensive tackle
3. Von Miller, Texas A&M, linebacker
4. Robert Quinn, North Carolina, defensive end
There’s no need to go any further. The Bengals should take one of the four players from above and they should get someone in my top three. I fully expect Cam Newton to be taken before the Bengals pick, thank goodness. The team shouldn’t have a chance to get him.
