The 2012 NFL scouting combine has all but concluded, which means the 2012 NFL draft is right around the corner. The Cincinnati Bengals were no doubt paying close attention to the happenings at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis in preparation for what is potentially the most critical draft in franchise history.
The Bengals enter the draft with a variety of needs, even if some are addressed via free agency. In my previous mock, the team addressed many problem areas with high-value picks. These projections have of course changed thanks to the scouting combine.
The combine was an opportunity for the Bengals’ scouts to see their targets up close and personal, as well as introduce them to some unknown names now on their radar. The combine performances (or lack thereof) have likely altered the Bengals' plans as the draft looms closer.
With that in mind, here’s a fresh, full seven round mock draft for the Cincinnati Bengals based on the performances at the 2012 NFL combine.
