Sports Blitz reader NFL mock draft: Vote for the Bengals' pick

April 04, 2011|By Matt Vensel

Every time I put out one of my mock drafts, readers tell me they think things would play out differently (chances are we'll both end up being wrong). Well, now you get a chance to play GM in my first-ever reader NFL mock draft.

Here's how it works. I'll post a daily poll where you can vote to decide what the team that's on the clock should do with its pick. To keep it simple, I'll give you five options for each pick. If you think I missed somebody, let me know in the comments section. We'll do this every day until we get to the Ravens' pick the week of the draft.

Based on your votes, Auburn quarterback Cam Newton went third to the Bills yesterday.

Today, Cincinnati is on the clock at pick No. 4. With Carson Palmer demanding a trade, it looks as if quarterback is one of the Bengals' biggest needs. But Blaine Gabbert and Cam Newton are off the board. Will they reach for a quarterback such as Arkansas's Ryan Mallett here, or will they select one of the draft's top prospects such as Clemson defensive end Da'Quan Bowers or Georgia wideout A.J. Green? You decide.

The Cardinals are on the clock tomorrow.

Here's how the draft has played out so far:

1. Panthers: Missouri QB Blaine Gabbert

2. Broncos: Alabama DL Marcell Dareus

3. Bills: Auburn QB Cam Newton
