Up until the 2014 NFL draft, I will be taking a look around the league at each NFL team and analyzing their situations leading up to the draft. This page will contain my individual team analysis leading up to the 2014 NFL Draft, and I will be providing periodic updates over the next few months. Be sure to check out my actual 2014 NFL Mock Draft predictions as well, in addition to the analysis I'll be providing for all 30 NFL teams and their potential draft needs.
2014 NFL Mock Draft Analysis - Cincinnati Bengals
Top Free Agents
DE – Michael Johnson
Biggest Team Needs
The Bengals need the team healthy and their starting QB to step up. They have very few holes. Michael Johnson will be gone after emerging as a top of the line pass rusher and racking up 11.5 sacks in 2012.
Top NFL Draft Targets
The Bengals will be drafting, late middle of the draft 18-24. They will very much be taking the best player available and could be staring at CJ Mosely (OLB, Alabama) or AJ Johnson (LB, Tennessee). They could also add depth to their o-line with James Hurst (OT, UNC).
