NFL Mock Draft 2012: The Readers Pick For The Cincinnati Bengals

After a day of voting by you, the readers, you selected linebacker Courtney Upshaw as the 16th pick in the NFL Draft for the New York Jets. He was the heavy favorite, nabbing 47 percent of the vote.

Now the Cincinnati Bengals are up. Their draft needs include a cornerback, a running back and a guard.

Who is available?

There are a couple of corner options. Dre Kirkpatrick and Stephen Gilmore are possibilities, as is Janoris Jenkins. At running back, there is not really anyone you want to use a first round pick on. They could look at a receiver like Kendall Wright and give Andy Dalton another weapon to throw to. Dontari Poe at defensive tackle is still on the board and is projected to go higher than here on many boards.

You could still suggest a pick as well.

Make your vote. Explain why!
