Analyzing Kiper Grade A draft: Bengals

After winning the AFC North for a third time and going 11-5, the Cincinnati Bengals have the 24th overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft. A cornerback, interior offensive lineman or linebacker would make sense for that first-round pick. In the rounds that follow, quarterbacks, defensive linemen, safeties and running backs could be drafted by Cincinnati.

Mel Kiper's fourth 2014 NFL mock draft hit ESPN's Insider page Thursday. His first-round choice for the Bengals is a player with rather local ties.
