Cincinnati Bengals Big Board: Final Pre-Draft Update

D.J. Fluker and Eddie Lacy are two names that could be called by the Bengals during the draft.

With the draft now less than 24 hours away, the Cincinnati Bengals most certainly have their big board ready and all of their top prospects in order.

There are several holes that need filling on the Bengals roster for the upcoming season. These positions include safety, offensive tackle, linebacker and running back. Other positions are still considered a need, but are not in as dire straits as the aforementioned areas.

The Bengals have the 21st overall selection in this year's draft and should have an abundance of choices with the pick. Generally, fans and draft pundits can somewhat agree on the upcoming selection, but not this year.

Cincinnati has been mocked all over the place with a first-round pick, ranging from defensive end to cornerback to running back, safety, offensive line, etc. Any of these positions would give the Bengals an immediate upgrade, but the prospect that Cincinnati will ultimately select is still a mystery.

There will be exactly 20 prospects taken before the Bengals make their selection at 21. Most of these players have a predetermined high draft grade. This means that certain players who rank very highly will not be included in this big board.

On another note, the only position that the Bengals are not looking for is a starting quarterback. They may very well select a prospect to back up Andy Dalton, but it will not happen in the early rounds of the draft. The quarterback big board will include only late-round prospects.

Let's take a look at what the Bengals 2013 NFL draft big board could look like at this moment.
