2013 NFL Mock Draft (3 Rounds): Cincinnati Bengals Mock Draft

Three months away from the 2013 NFL Draft, all but two teams have shifted their focus to the offseason and draft.

Many sites including ours will attempt to project how the draft will play out and Kevin Hanson has updated his three-round mock draft this weekend. As we get closer to the draft, the plan is to project all seven rounds.

Some of you are fans of the NFL draft and take a big-picture view while others only really care how things will shake out for your particular team. Either way, we got you covered as we will start publishing 32 team posts to go along with our full mock draft for you to be able to follow it whatever way you deem appropriate.

In Hanson's updated 2013 mock draft, here are the Cincinnati Bengals picks:

Pick 21. Jonathan Cooper, G, North Carolina

Several weeks ago, SI's Tony Pauline wrote that "Cooper received first round grades from scouts prior to the season and has surpassed expectations on the field this year. ... The athletic guard improved his power at the point of attack and now displays the ability to beat down defenders on the line of scrimmage as well as annihilating opponents blocking in motion." In addition, Pauline writes that Cooper is "unlikely to make it out of the draft's initial 15 choices."

Pick 37 (Via OAK). Matt Elam, S, Florida

Not only is Elam a hard-hitting safety that ranked second on the team behind defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd in tackles for loss (10.0), but he also led the Gators in interceptions (four).

Pick 55. Robert Woods, WR, USC

Going into the season, Woods was projected by many as a top-five pick, but he has had a disappointing season and was overshadowed on his own team by sophomore Marqise Lee, who won the Biletnikoff award.

Woods finished the year with 76 receptions for 846 yards and 11 touchdowns after putting up a line of 111-1,292-15 as a sophomore.

Pick 86. Tyrann Mathieu, CB, LSU

The past 12 months have not gone well for The Honey Badger. Fortunately for him, the Bengals are one of the teams most willing to forgive and forget. If he gets his life in order, he gives the Bengals a playmaker in the defensive secondary at a discount.
