Cincinnati Bengals Team Needs for 2013 NFL Draft
1. Running Back
2. Offensive Tackle
5. Wide Receiver
6. Outside Linebacker
7. Defensive End depth
The Bengals offense has vastly improved during the last two years, which included playoff appearances. But their rushing attack has held them back from being a top tier offense. Finding a feature back is a major priority if the Bengals want to take the next step. Another offensive skill position in need is wide receiver, as Cincinnati has yet to find a good complement to star receiver AJ Green.
Starting right tackle Andre Smith remains a free agent. If he remains unsigned, adding a replacement is an early round need for the Bengals. In addition to their tackle needs, the Bengals could use a long-term upgrade at center.
Defensively, the Bengals biggest need remains at safety. Cincinnati has had below average production from their safeties in recent years, and could use a top level guy to round out their secondary.
