NFL Draft 2011: Cincinnati Bengals Will Trade Up for Quarterback
Cincinnati Bengals Will Join Rush of Teams That will Trade Back up to First Round
The Cincinnati Bengals need a quarterback, as many other teams do in this draft. This year however, there are really no clear-cut ones that any team would spend a top ten pick on (though two will go that high anyway).
There are, however, a slew of quarterbacks available in the 25-40 pick range, and as a result there are many teams likely to trade up from the second round into the end of the first so that they can get the quarterback that they most want.
The question of which quarterback Cincinnati would select is up for grabs, since Ryan Mallett, Christian Ponder, and Andy Dalton are all realistic options, but there's no question that the Bengals will at least grab one of those three.
If they wait until the 35th pick to grab one, there should be one of those three available, but there's no guarantee on that, especially with the rumors floating around about the Bills, Vikings, and other teams potentially trading up.
Unless the Bengals are that enamored with Cam Newton or Blaine Gabbert and select one of them over A.J. Green, I cannot see them staying where they are in round two, not with the quarterback situation they have.
