The Phinsider Community Mock Draft: Pick #9 - Cincinnati Bengals

New, comments

With the 8th pick in The Phinsider Community Mock Draft, the Baltimore Ravens select Glenn Dorsey, DT, LSU.

Dorsey finished with 41% of the vote. Brian Brohm was 2nd with 22% and Leodis McKelvin was 3rd with 17%.

So here's how our draft looks as of now:

  1. Miami Dolphins - Chris Long, DE, Virginia (49%)
  2. St. Louis Rams - Jake Long, OT, Michigan (67%)
  3. Atlanta Falcons - Matt Ryan, QB, BC (68%)
  4. Oakland Raiders - Darren McFadden, RB, Arkansas (47%)
  5. Kansas City Chiefs - Ryan Clady, OT, Boise St. (30%)
  6. New York Jets - Vernon Gholston, DE, Ohio St. (56%)
  7. New England Patriots - Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, CB, Tenn St. (32%)
  8. Baltimore Ravens - Glenn Dorsey, DT, LSU (41%)
Next up, with the 9th pick, are the Cincinnati Bengals. For Bengals analysis and insight, you can check out Cincy Jungle. Below are the Bengals' draft needs, courtesy of NFL Draft Countdown:
1. Defensive Tackle: Domata Peko's developed into a solid starter and is still improving but John Thornton's best days are behind him and the same can be said for their top backup Bryan Robinson too.
2. Outside Linebacker: They have three unrestricted free agents in Landon Johnson, Caleb Miller, and Lemar Marshall while Dhani Jones is not starting material at this point in his career. Need I say more?
3. Tight End: This has been a problem area for years and adding a stud pass catcher could help revitalize their once powerful offense. Reggie Kelly is a blocking specialist and is best suited for a #2 role.
