Pre-Bowl, pre-playoffs, way early Mock

Recommended Posts

I know. I's really early but whatever.

Let's call it a list for Santa Claus. I'm just going to go round by round in a general way, with an extra pick or two for comps for Sanu (r4) and Jones (r3). Maybe its a bit of wishful thinking but as things clarify, I'll tighten it up.

Bengals picks only.

r1 - Jamal Adams FS   6-0, 210  LSU

r2 - Mason Cole  C 6-5, 305  Michigan

r3 - Devonte Fields OLB  6-3, 245  Louisville

    r3 - comp - Daeshon Hall DE 6-5, 260 Texas A&M

r4 - Jalen Reeves-Maybin  LB 6-0, 230 Louisville

    r4 - comp - Travin Dural WR  6-2, 195  LSU

r5 - Kareem Hunt RB 5-11, 225  Toledo

r6 - Gavin Andrews - OG - 6-4, 330 Oregon St.

r7 - Brendan Langley - CB - 6-0, 190  Lamar

I fully expect 4 comp picks this year.

Can't really comment on the players much, as I've just started going through them.
As much as I might like to see a Center taken early, I don't expect one to be taken at all.
They simply feel Bodine does a good job in the middle.

Love doubling up at the LB spot.  I think that's a must at this point in time.

Consider this my do-over update, now with all the picks identified (back-up pick options in parenth for r1-r3)

r1 - 9 - Reuben Foster- LB Alabama ( Corey Davis WR Western Michigan)

r2 - 41 - Garrett Bolles  OT Utah ( Raekwon McMillan LB Ohio State)

r3 - 73 - Rasul Douglas  CB  West Virginia (Joe Mixon  RB  Oklahoma)

r4 - 116 - Tyus Bowser  OLB  Houston

r4 - 138 - Noah Brown WR Ohio State

r5 - 153 - Daeshon Hall DE  Texas A&M

r6 - 193 - Tarean Folston  RB  Notre Dame (if hye take Mixon, this could be an OT)

r6 - 217 - Deatrich Wise  DE Arkansas

r7 - 227 - Blake Jarwin  TE Oklahoma State

r7 - 251 - Jordan Morgan  OG Kutztown


Mixon (if they determine he has gained some maturity) could be a big steal.

Let me know what you think.

Funny how things move along.
At that point, Bowser was thought to be a 4th round talent.
Now, people think he's a 1st rounder.

I use to do mocks religiously, but got away from it.
However, if I were hoping for players to fall "slightly", it would look something like this.

1. John Ross, WR, Washington-  Take the top off the defense with that speed and is a kick return guy as well.
2. Evan Engram, TE, Ole Miss-  Probably goes sooner, but I would love this pick with Eifert being a FA in 2018 and always dinged.
3. Terell Basham, DE, Ohio-  The Bengals are thought to have a high grade on him and they could use the depth.
4a.  Samaje Perine, RB, Oklahoma-  Might go sooner as well.  I really like what he brings.
4b.  Julie'n Davenport, OT, Bucknell-  Needs development but has been a starting LT.  Depth for RT at the worst.
5a.  Brandon Wilson, CB/WR/KR, Houston-  More speed and extremely versatile.  Most snaps at CB.
5b.  Zane Gonzalez, K, Arizona St.-  This is a guy I really hope they go after.
6a.  Josh Harvey-Clemons, SS/LB, Lousiville-  Risk pick and a tweener, but I like his potential on defense.
6b.  Stevie Tu'ikolovatu, NT, USC-  Peko is gone and they need depth. He may go sooner as well.
7a.  Samson Ebukam, Eastern Washington, LB-  Who knows ??  The Bengals brought him in and it's the 7th round.
7b.  Jon Toth, OC, Kentucky-  4 year starter in the SEC and provides depth.  They aren't replacing Bodine.
