2016 NFL Mock Draft 8.0: Post Trade Edition
25 of 34
With the first round wide receiver crop picked through before the Bengals get on the clock, it’s unlikely A.J. Green and Andy Dalton find a new addition here.
Moving to their next need, Cincinnati has to add depth to their defensive line and find an eventual replacement for Domata Peko.
Playing next to Geno Atkins, Andrew Billings from Baylor will find early success and may in fact send Peko to the bench in 2016.
Given the suspension to Vontaze Burfict, the Bengals are going to need pressure from their front line early and often. Drafting Billings will ensure they can get the penetration they need, and keep the Cincinnati defense as tenacious as ever.
