Cincinnati Bengals 2013 NFL Draft Big Board: Real Time Updates and Analysis
Frank Victores-USA TODAY Sports
The Bengals continued their streak of stellar drafts in 2012 and look to repeat in 2013.

The 2013 NFL Draft is set to begin on Thursday, April 25 which is now only a month and a half away. All 32 NFL teams have now comprised a big board listing all prospects in order due to the value they would bring to the team.

The Bengals have had some very solid drafts over the last few years by letting the draft flow to them and selecting their best player available (BPA) from their big board.

Over the next slides, we will take a look at what the Bengals big board could potentially look like at this time.

Based on positional strength, player ability and team needs, we will delve into the Bengals top 15 players overall and also break down the top prospects at each position. Later, we will take a look at some late round sleepers that could provide great value to Cincinnati.

There are plenty of options for the Bengals in the 2013 draft due to different team needs. There is not one position that is an absolute necessity but plenty that they can use to bolster a talented, young team. This is a great position to be in heading into a draft.

Earlier this offseason, head coach Marvin Lewis made it very clear that every position was open during the draft aside from starting quarterback. More than likely, due to selecting two last year, the Bengals will also stay away from wide receivers early. Finally, with the selection of Orson Charles last year to pair with Jermaine Gresham, Cincinnati will not be looking for a tight end either.

With the recent re-signings of Mike Nugent and Kevin Huber, the Bengals will not be targeting any kickers or punters in the draft this year as well.

These aforementioned positions will not be listed in the following slides due to the lack of need for the Bengals organization.

Be sure to check in each afternoon for updates and player movement on the big board after events such as pro days and free-agent signings.
