Scenario: Top corner tumbles
The definition of "top corner" will vary for most, but for our purposes the top corners are Justin Gilbert, Darqueze Dennard, Kyle Fuller and Jason Verrett.
There's an obvious need in Cincinnati with the trio of Leon Hall, Terence Newman and Adam Jones by no means a surefire thing. The same applies to third-year corner Dre Kirkpatrick, so the Bengals enter the first likely on the hunt for a corner first and foremost.
The good news is simple—a minimum of four names are a great value when Cincinnati walks to the podium. Odds are one falls down the board, gets selected by the Bengals and has a chance to learn from an outstanding veteran cast.
Alternative Scenario: Teddy Bridgewater falls
There won't be another alternative scenario the rest of the way, but this one simply has to be said—if Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater takes a tumble, the Bengals have to be there to scoop him up.
Bridgewater has gone from a can't-miss prospect to a potential second-round pick in seemingly a matter of days. He's a potential franchise quarterback who can sit behind Andy Dalton and learn, or even push for the starting gig as a rookie.
