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

For the Tennessee Titans, Illinois defensive end Whitney Mercilus.

Now on to the Cincinnati Bengals for their second pick of the first round. With the 17th pick , they got cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick. They are listed as having their greatest needs at corner, at running back and at offensive guard.

The community pick was for running back Lamar Miller. They could go that route. OL Cordy Glenn is still on the board and could fill that need on the offensive line. They could go with Kendall Wright at receiver to get a playmaker for Andy Dalton. Defensive tackle Dontari Poe is still surprisingly on the board. Even still, they might consider drafting another corner in Stephon Gilmore.

Make your vote. Explain why!
