2017 NFL Mock Draft - Cincinnati Bengals Mock Draft
On this page, you will find all of our picks for the Cincinnati Bengals in the 2017 NFL Mock Draft from Kevin Hanson.
Here are the picks in our 2017 NFL Mock Draft for the Bengals:
|1.09||9||Derek Barnett, DE, Tennessee|
|Carlos Dunlap had 8.0 sacks (and defensive tackle Geno Atkins had 9.0), but the Bengals could use an upgrade opposite Dunlap as 30-year-old Michael Johnson had 3.5 sacks and graded out as PFF's 105th edge rusher (out of 109 qualified players).|
While he may lack the elite burst of some other pass-rushers in this class, Barnett's production is unparalelled as no player had more sacks over the past three seasons combined. In fact, Barnett broke Reggie White's all-time sack record at Tennessee despite playing only three seasons and the junior edge rusher became the first player in SEC history to record double-digit sacks in three different (consecutive) seasons.
|2.09||41||Joe Mixon, RB, Oklahoma|
|Based purely on football, Mixon is a first-round talent. Some teams have removed Mixon from their boards completely, but the Bengals have a history of taking chances on players with character concerns. Not only has Jeremy Hill struggled in each of the past two seasons (3.6 YPC in 2015 and 3.8 YPC in 2016), but he will be an unrestricted free agent after the 2017 season.|
|3.09||73||Duke Riley, OLB, LSU|
|4.09||116||Julie'n Davenport, OT, Bucknell|
|4.31||138||Josh Reynolds, WR, Texas A&M|
|5.09||153||Kyle Fuller, C, Baylor|
|5.32||176||Zane Gonzalez, K, Arizona State|
|6.09||193||T.J. Logan, RB, North Carolina|
|6.33||217||Tedric Thompson, S, Colorado|
|7.09||227||Cethan Carter, TE, Nebraska|
|7.33||251||Caleb Brantley, DT, Florida|
