The Cincinnati Bengals will, without question, have their eyes on potential targets later in the draft. We’ve seen many great choices in the last three rounds of the draft throughout the history of the NFL. There is no reason to think there is no upside in guys who may fall as a result of off-field problems, team success, or lack of exposure.
For the Bengals, it is seen that they need to select a quarterback to develop for the future. That is if things do not work out with Andy Dalton and the organization. If the organization does not select a quarterback in the first four rounds, QB will most certainly be a position on Cincinnati’s late-draft radar. A guy such as Virgina Tech’s Logan Thomas. The Lynchburg native broke the career passing touchdowns record, as well as the record for rushing touchdowns by a quarterback at Virginia Tech. Another player with excellent potential is Keith Wenning of Ball State, who threw for nearly 4,000 yards with 34 touchdowns and only six interceptions. Even Aaron Murray of Georgia could fall to the fifth round, because of injury. The Bengals have shown much great interest in Murray.
Marvin Lewis and General Manager Mike Brown could be looking for play-making wide receivers or punt returners late in the draft as well. Players that could ultimately have a huge impact on the team’s success. Orgon’s Josh Huff and Devin Street of Pittsburgh.
