The Bengals have to land an impact player in the first round of the NFL Draft. Pro Football Focus released a mock draft and I believe it would be an ideal scenario for the Bengals. They have Cincinnati selecting Western Michigan wide receiver Corey Davis with the ninth pick.
Pro Football Focus loves the fit. Here's an excerpt of what they wrote:
"One of my favorite fits in the draft, Davis provides a perfect complement to WR A.J. Green, as he’s one of the draft’s best route-runners and fills a major void for the Bengals’ offense, which felt the losses of departed wide receivers Marvin Jones (Lions) and Mohamed Sanu (Falcons) last season."
I believe the Bengals should do their best to add a weapon on offense with the ninth pick. They replaced Sanu with Brandon LaFell, but they have yet to bring in a downfield threat of Jones' caliber. Davis would give Andy Dalton a great number two wide receiver for the rest of his prime years. It's hard to argue against it. For more on Davis, you can listen to my Bengals draft preview podcast here.
Here's an in-depth look at Bengals' free agency.
Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com believes they will stand by Jeremy Hill and could lose Kevin Zeitler.
