2013 MCM Mock Draft: At #21, the Cincinnati Bengals select...

Offensive line it is...

Chris Trotman

With the 21st pick of the 2013 Music City Miracles mock draft, the Cincinnati Bengals (represented by infinitystealth) select:

DJ Fluker, OT, University Of Alabama


From infinitystealth:

This was a tough decision and it hinges on whether or not Andre Smith re-signs with the team. At this point, the two sides are really far off and the Bengals would be in a huge need for a starting RT, thus the pick of Fluker. He is a really good run-blocker which will help the Bengals with their run-game and accommodate the changes at the RB position we will see in the draft for the team. Of course, the knock on him is his pass-blocking but with better technique through coaching, he will definitely be an asset in that part of the game.

The team's other needs are Safety, Linebacker and Running Back; however, there really are no players at this point in the draft worth selecting. Both Safety and RB are deep in this class, so it would be worthwhile if the Bengals would wait on those two positions. The other intriguing choice here was ILB Kevin Minter of LSU or Matt Elam, SS of Florida, and one of them would most probably be my pick if Andre Smith was re-signed.

Other choices: Kevin Minter, Matt Elam, Eddie Lacy, Bjoern Werner
