This is one scenario where the Bengals could add a quarterback of the future while still addressing their need at linebacker."The draft is drawing closer Womens Clark Harris Jersey , and we are weeks away from seeing who the Bengals will add in this years draft. While one-round mock drafts are fun and entertaining, it usually will leave you wondering what your team will do in the next round. That is especially true if the player projected to your team doesn’t exactly address a need.Since it is becoming more and more common for mock drafters to send a quarterback to Cincinnati, it seems like a good time to look at a mock draft that goes beyond the first round after having the Bengals take a quarterback.This mock draft was created by The Athletics’ Dane Brugler. It is a seven-round mock draft that was created based on what he has been hearing from around the league. It also doesn’t include any trades. Here is his first selection for the Bengals:11. Cincinnati Bengals – Dwayne Haskins, QB, Ohio StateIt seems like the news that the Bengals are interested in a quarterback in the first round (whether you believe that rumor or not) and the rumor that NFL teams aren’t as high on Haskins have really come about at the same time.When the draft process first started, it seemed like very unlikely that Haskins would even be an option for the Bengals at 11. At that time, it seemed like their marriage with linebacker Devin White was inevitable. Things have really come a long way though. Now Haskins is projected to fall, and White is commonly paired with the Buccaneers at fifth overall.You may have your opinions on Haskins Trey Hopkins Jersey White , but regardless of his strengths and weaknesses, this would be the Bengals buying a lottery ticket for a franchise quarterback. Haskins would also be landing in one of the more premiere locations for a rookie quarterback, because he would likely be afforded time to sit behind a veteran and learn. Most of these first-round quarterbacks will likely be counted on to start very early in their career. Haskins having this time would allow him to work on weakness like his mechanics and decision making. He would also be able to build up some familiarity with guys like A.J. Green and Tyler Boyd during practices, which would help with his down field throwing. Not to mention having a guy like Zac Taylor being able to groom you for a season or two in his system is bound to help polish off some his rough edges he’d have as a rookie.What is very interesting about this pick is that the Bengals also had Devin Bush on the board to fill their huge hole at linebacker. Opting for Haskins would be an interesting move, but Brugler doesn’t have the Bengals waiting long to address that hole.Here is Brugler’s second pick for the Bengals:42. Cincinnati Bengals – Mack Wilson, LB, AlabamaIn this mock draft, Wilson ends up being the third linebacker off the board Clayton Fejedelem Jersey White , and only one more goes at the end of the second round. This ends up being the only time Cincinnati takes a linebacker in this mock draft as well.Wilson may not get the hype that White and Bush are getting in the first round, but he will still end up being a quality player. As Brugler states, Wilson will be very helpful as the Bengals try to find a linebacker who can come in and solve their issue of of covering at the linebacker position.The major thing working against Wilson is that he only started 17 games. His inexperience led to some inconsistent tape, but the flashes are enough to give you hope that his ceiling is still very high in the NFL. This gives an interesting case where the Bengals end up addressing their biggest need without using their first round pick. It is a scenario that most Bengals fans would likely be happy with at the end of the day, and it gives the Taylor era some solid footing to start out on.Here’s how the rest of this mock draft played out: 72. Cincinnati Bengals – Max Scharping, OT, Northern Illinois110. Cincinnati Bengals – Gerald Willis, DT Womens Joe Mixon Jersey , Miami (Fla.)149. Cincinnati Bengals – Isaac Nauta, TE, Georgia183. Cincinnati Bengals – David Sills, WR, West Virginia198. Cincinnati Bengals – Mitch Hyatt, OL, Clemson210. Cincinnati Bengals – Devine Ozigbo, RB Vincent Rey Jersey White , Nebraska211. Cincinnati Bengals – Montre Hartage, CB, Northwestern213. Cincinnati Bengals – Shareef Miller, EDGE, Penn State223. Cincinnati Bengals – Keelan Doss, WR, UC-Davis There was some speculation about the Bengals taking a quarterback in the first round of this year’s draft, but they opted for offensive lineman Jonah Williams and avoided the position on Friday night as well.They didn’t wait long on Saturday to add a quarterback to the roster Alex Erickson Jersey White , however. The Bengals traded up to the second pick of the fourth round — the 104th overall pick — and took Ryan Finley.Finley opened his college career at Boise State before transferring to N.C. State and starting 39 games over the last three seasons. He completed 64.5 percent of his passes over those starts while throwing 60 touchdowns and 25 interceptions. He also had a streak of 339 passes without an interception during his junior season.Andy Dalton remains the starter in Cincinnati and is signed through the 2020 season, but team owner Mike Brown raised the notion of moving in a different direction in the future when he said he wanted to see how Dalton fares in new head coach Zac Taylor’s offense before talking about a contract extension.The Bengals, who opened the day with 10 day three picks, traded the 110th, 183rd and 198th picks to the 49ers to move up.
