It's never too early regarding the NFL draft for any franchise, even if Cincinnati is currently 6-2. Owner Mike Brown has been phenomenal recently, with his best moves involving quarterbacks.
Finding the team's franchise quarterback with Andy Dalton in the second round is exceptional in addition to adding a first- and second-round pick for Carson Palmer.
With Cincinnati expected to use its first two picks in the middle of the opening round, trading up will have to occur for the Bengals to select some of these players.
The targets for Cincinnati include positions and ideal players to fill each hole with secondary options if the best fit cannot be selected.
