Ray Mencio's Post-Combine 2018 NFL Mock Draft (3/13/18)


1st Round

Please note that some of the recently traded picks are not official so this is my best guess based off a rumors of which actual picks have been traded.


  1.     Cleveland Browns: Sam Darnold, QB, USC

Yes the Browns could draft Saquon Barkley and the addition of Tyrod Taylor doesn’t preclude them from taking a quarterback first overall. The Browns have passed on the likes of Carson Wentz, Jared Goff and Deshaun Watson. Quarterback is the most important position in all of professional sports and the Browns need to identify the best quarterback in this draft and select him. If they want Barkley they should trade up from the 4th pick to get him. Darnold had a very up and down year last year but has all the makings of franchise player. He is still young, has a great arm and may need a little time to continue to develop but will have a long career in the NFL.


  1.     New York Giants: Josh Rosen, QB, UCLA

Yes, Eli Manning may have a couple of seasons left but he has been an average quarterback at best and is 37 years old. So the Giants could take Barkley and the team will improve but Davis Webb is not the future. Josh Rosen has a gunslinger mentality and will take chances but he has the arm and intangibles to be a star in the NFL. Rosen is a good prospect who will need to cut down on the turnovers but if you want to know if he can make it in the NFL watch the 4th quarter of the Bruins game against Texas A&M.


  1.     Indianapolis Colts: Saquon Barkley, RB, Penn St.

While everyone believes this is a dream scenario for the Colts, they are in a great spot as it is as adding Barkley, Bradley Chubb or Quenton Nelson would be huge. Barkley is the best overall player in the draft and if Andrew Luck is healthy, Barkley will be in the perfect situation. Barkley is a dynamic running back who has a great skill set to be an instant Pro Bowler.


  1.     Cleveland Browns (from HOU): Bradley Chubb, DE, North Carolina St.

Myles Garrett had a great rookie season. He showed what he has a huge upside and will be a double digit sack guy in the NFL. Pairing Chubb with Garrett would give the Browns constant pressure off of both edges. Chubb finished 2017 with 10 sacks and 25 tackles for a loss and over his entire career he has 58.5 tackles for a loss and 25.5 sacks. He has been somehow underrated due to the attention that the quarterbacks and Barkley are getting but Chubb is an elite pass rusher.


  1.     Denver Broncos: Josh Allen, QB, Wyoming

It appears that the Broncos will not be a destination for Kirk Cousins. While I expect John Elway to still try to sign a veteran they will need to select a quarterback “of the future” early on in the draft. While I believe that Josh Allen will struggle in the NFL many are enamored with his arm strength and athleticism. Allen is a good athlete with a strong arm but he is very inaccurate. Allen will struggle to overcome those deficiencies in the NFL.


  1.     New York Jets: Baker Mayfield, QB, Oklahoma

Baker Mayfield gets unfairly compared to Johnny Manziel, mostly by people who have no clue what they are talking about. Mayfield is a competitor and his emotions run high. He does need to learn how to harness them at times, but that’s what you want in a franchise quarterback. He can make all the throws, has good vision, pocket presence and competitiveness that can’t be measured.


  1.     Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Minkah Fitzpatrick, CB, Alabama

Some believe that Fitzpatrick will be better off at safety however, we also heard that about Jalen Ramsey. Fitzpatrick is a complete cornerback who can run, tackle and cover. While he didn’t put up eye popping numbers the Combine, he doesn’t have to. He plays with great technique and has elite recovery speed. He knows the nuisances of the position which will help make him a starter immediately.


  1.     Chicago Bears: Quenton Nelson, G, Notre Dame

The Bears need help at wide receiver and could make Calvin Ridley the pick here but with Nelson still on the board he is too good to pass up. Nelson is one of the top 5 players in the draft and will have an immediate impact for whoever drafts him. He is very strong and can anchor at the point of contact. He has very good mobility for his size and can get out to the second level with no issues. He really doesn’t have a flaw to his game.


  1.     San Francisco 49ers: Tremaine Edmunds, LB, Virginia Tech

The 49ers should go after a veteran wide receiver in free agency which will alleviate the need for one early in the draft. Both Edmunds and Smith are here so the 49ers have their choosing. After signing Richard Sherman in free agency, it made cornerback less of a priority. Edmunds can play all three linebacker spots, drop in coverage and rush the passer. He is such a versatile player that he can help the 49ers in many different ways.


  1.  Oakland Raiders: Denzel Ward, CB, Ohio St.

The Raiders need to improve their defense badly. Khalil Mack is an elite pass rusher but no one else seems to want to put pressure on the quarterback and their secondary doesn’t seem to want to make a play either. Denzel Ward is an elite prospect. Ward height was a question mark but he measured in at 5’11” at the Combine and then blew the doors of the 40 with a 4.32. He can excel at covering both outside and the slot and I believe he could cover tight ends despite his height. He has excellent quickness and has a great football IQ.


  1.  Miami Dolphins: Roquan Smith, LB, Georgia

The Lawrence Timmons signing did not pan out for the Dolphins and Kao Misi is a free agent so both won’t be back in 2018. Last years second round pick, Raekwon McMillan tore his ACL and missed the entire 2017 season. McMillan still could work out but Smith is too good to pass up. He would be an instant starter for the Dolphins and give them more athleticism than they have ever had a the position with McMillan and Kiko Alonso. Smith is a difference maker, who gets sideline to sideline and is a violent tackler.


  1. Buffalo Bills (from CIN): Lamar Jackson, QB, Louisville

The Bills will look long and hard at the quarterbacks in this draft and there are rumors that they are trying hard to move up even further. Lamar Jackson has a wide range of opinions and some believe he should be playing wide receiver. Jackson has to improve his accuracy but his ability to make plays with his feet can separate him from some of the other quarterbacks.  


  1.  Washington Redskins: Derwin James, S, Florida St.

I still would not be shocked if the Redskins took a quarterback early in the draft but it appears they believe they can win now. Derwin James is a very unique player who can play multiple roles and do them all very well. James best position in the NFL will be at safety. He can cover tight ends, running backs and receivers and is a very physical player. Su’a Cravens has some issues and the Redskins may be best to move on.


  1.  Green Bay Packers: Jaire Alexander, CB, Louisville

The Packers will most likely be looking at defense with this selection. Their first selection last year, Kevin King, had a somewhat disappointing rookie year. He still has some upside but that selection does not rule out a cornerback early in this draft. Alexander is a very physical and quick corner. He missed a lot of time in 2017 but when he played he was at a near elite level. He had a great Combine and showed his athleticism with a 4.38 second 40 yard dash a 6.71 3 cone drill. He can play on the inside or outside.


  1.  Arizona Cardinals: Mason Rudolph, QB, Oklahoma State

The Cardinals will make every effort to get a veteran quarterback and this pick will not be a quarterback if they sign Kirk Cousins. If they end up with Bradford or Keenum, they will most likely take a quarterback here. Mason Rudolph could be an ideal fit. He does have some growth and learning to about adapting to a NFL offense however, he has the tools to be very successful. While he doesn’t have elite arm strength he has good enough to make all the throws.


  1.  Baltimore Ravens: Calvin Ridley, WR, Alabama

The Ravens know they have to revamp their wide receiving corps. They will bring in at least 3 new receivers and will need to use an early pick on one. This is an ideal fit for the Ravens and while some believe Ridley isn’t an elite athlete he does have better speed and quickness than he has gotten credit for. He runs good routes and has great hands.


  1.  Los Angeles Chargers: Leighton Vander Esch, LB, Boise St.

This may be a little early for Vander Esch but his athletic ability and production in college are what can move him into the middle of the first round. His versatility makes him a perfect fit for the Chargers defense. They lacked athletic ability in the middle of their defense and LVE would be a huge improvement.


  1.  Seattle Seahawks: Mike McGlinchey, OT, Notre Dame

The Seahawks traded for Duane Brown who is a solid left tackle but has a $9.75 million cap hit this year and will be a free agent after 2018. Right tackle Germain Ifedi should move inside or be the Seahawks swing tackle. McGlinchey can play left or right tackle and best bet for the Seahawks is that he fills in right tackle and takes over for Brown in 2019. McGlinchey is a very good tackle, with good athleticism.


  1.  Dallas Cowboys: D.J. Moore, WR, Maryland

Dez Bryant may or may not be back in 2018. Even if he is, the Cowboys still need to address the wide receiver position. Cole Beasley is a below average receiver and Terrance Williams has been a constant disappointment. D.J. Moore is a tough receiver, who has good hands, who can run good routes and isn’t afraid to block. Moore had a great Combine proving that he has the athletically ability to be a go to receiver.


  1.  Detroit Lions: Maurice Hurst, DT, Michigan

Maurice Hurst has a potential heart condition which could affect his draft stock but if he is cleared this is a great spot for him. The Lions need to get a better pass rush and Hurst is the best interior pass rusher in the draft. He has an elite burst off the snap and can get into the backfield very quickly. He isn’t the biggest defensive tackle but he is still very strong.


  1.   Cincinnati Bengals (from BUF): Connor Williams, OL, Texas

The Bengals really need to fix their offensive line (even after acquiring Cordy Glenn) but still could go a variety of ways with this selection. Connor Williams has short arms and weighs under 300 pounds which leads many to believe he is better suited to play guard. Regardless of tackle or guard the Bengals could use an upgrade at both spots. I believe Williams can stick at tackle due to his athletic ability.


  1.  Buffalo Bills (from KC): Billy Price, C/G, Ohio St.

Losing Eric Wood was a big blow. He was a great player, who was a leader and played a key role in the Bills offense. This draft has some very good interior offensive linemen and Price is a very good one. While he tore his pectoral at the Combine it shouldn’t hurt his draft stock too much. He should be a plug and play center.


  1.  Los Angeles Rams: Marcus Davenport, EDGE, Texas-San Antonio

After trading Robert Quinn the Rams left themselves with a bigger need at defensive end. They have a very good secondary but they need to make sure they have the players to get pressure off the edge. Marcus Davenport had a very good season in 2017 but has looked very good in both the Senior Bowl and at the Combine.


  1.  Carolina Panthers: Isaiah Wynn, G, Georgia

The Panthers are not tagging Andrew Norwell and he should make a lot of money in free agency as he was one of the best guards in football. They will need to find a suitable replacement and Isaiah Wynn is great value late in the first round. Wynn played guard for the majority of his collegiate career but moved to tackle for his senior season. His best fit is at guard and he will be an instant starter.


  1.  Tennessee Titans: Rashaan Evans, LB, Alabama

The Titans could go a few different ways with their first pick. Avery Williamson is a free agent and may not be back and Wesley Woodyard who has a good year in 2017 will be 32 and under control for two more years. Rashaan Evans is a violent tackler who has underrated athleticism. He gives the Titans another inside linebacker who can make plays sideline to sideline and improve their run defense.

  1.  Atlanta Falcons: Vita Vea, DT, Washington

The Falcons could use improvement on the interior of their offensive and defensive lines. Vea is a great value this late in the first round. While he won’t get much pressure on the quarterback he can be an elite run defender while still taking on double teams and altering the pocket. He is a very strong and difficult linemen to block.


  1.  New Orleans Saints: Christian Kirk, WR, Texas A&M

The Saints had one of the best running attacks in football in 2017 and have an elite receiver in Michael Thomas. Christian Kirk would add another dimension to the offense. Kirk has good quickness and solid hands. He would be able to work the middle of the field and give Drew Brees another weapon.


  1.  Pittsburgh Steelers: Harold Landry, EDGE, Boston College

With the top inside linebackers off the board the Steelers could very well look at a safety with this selection. T.J. Watt had a very good rookie season and the Steelers set a franchise record for sacks. Bud Dupree could be in his last year with the Steelers, Arthur Moats is a valuable backup but also a free agent and there is not much more depth at outside linebacker for the Steelers. Landry had 16.5 sacks and 22 tackles for a loss in 2016 but missed a large chunk of time in 2017 and only finished with 5 sacks. Landry uses his speed and bend to beat tackles but will have to improve his pass rushing moves to be more successful in the NFL.


  1.  Jacksonville Jaguars: Will Hernandez, G, UTEP

The Jaguars could use an upgrade on the interior offensive line and Hernandez is an instant starter on the offensive line. He was a 4 year starter at left guard and was the best player on the UTEP team. He opened holes for Aaron Jones in 2016 which lead to a great deal of his success. Hernandez has a wide, strong frame and can win in a phone booth and push to the second level.

  1.  Minnesota Vikings: Da’Ron Payne, DT, Alabama

The Vikings are going to make a strong run at Kirk Cousins which could make a huge difference on offense. They could look to build up their offensive line but their defensive line could use some improvement as well. Payne is a very good athlete who has a unique skill set. He has very underrated athleticism and while his stats don’t pop out, that doesn’t mean he wasn’t productive. He anchored the Crimson Tide defensive line and took on double teams constantly.

  1.  New England Patriots: Josh Jackson, CB, Iowa

Malcolm Butler is pretty much all but gone and the Patriots will need to replace him outside. The Patriots could look to replace Nate Solder at left tackle with this pick but ultimately they will look to the defensive side of the ball.  Jackson has good size and speed and plays with good technique. He is best suited to stay on the outside and can be a playmaker. He has the ability to be a day 1 starter and gives the Patriots are good combination with Stephon Gilmore.


  1.  Philadelphia Eagles: Mike Hughes, CB, Central Florida

The Eagles don’t have many glaring holes but they could definitely use some depth in the defensive backfield. Hughes is a great value at the end of the first round and could be a starter very quickly. He can play in zone or press coverage and is also a very good return specialist. Hughes will push for playing time wherever he gets drafted.

2nd Round


  1.  Cleveland Browns: Derrius Guice, RB, LSU

This is great value for the Browns as Guice is a first round caliber prospect. There are a bunch of spots he can go at the end of Round 1.


  1.  New York Giants: Martinas Rankin, OT, Mississippi St.

Giants need to revamp their offensive line and Rankin could start at left tackle for them in 2018.


  1.  Cleveland Browns (from HOU): Carlton Davis, CB, Auburn

The Browns have so many picks they need to take the best player available and Davis has lenght and a high upside.


  1.  Indianapolis Colts: Sam Hubbard, EDGE, Ohio St.

Hubbard is a solid all around edge defender. He can get to the quarterback, play the run and drop into coverage.


  1.  New York Jets: Ronald Jones, RB, USC

The Jets need to find a stable running back who can stay on the field for all 3 downs. Jones has a big upside.


  1.  Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Rasheem Green, EDGE, USC

The Bucs need to find more pass rushers and Green had a very good season in with 10 sacks and had a good showing at the Combine.


  1.  Chicago Bears: Cortland Sutton, WR, SMU

This would be a perfect fit and while Sutton could go in Round 1 this is probably his floor.


  1.  Denver Broncos: Dallas Goedert, TE, South Dakota St.

The Broncos need to find a new tight end and could look for one in free agency. Goedert is a very well rounded player who can contribute in many ways.


  1.  Oakland Raiders: Sony Michel, RB, Georgia

Marshawn Lynch is owed $6 million and may not be great fit with Gruden. Michel is a very well rounded running back.


  1.  Miami Dolphins: Isaiah Oliver, CB, Colorado

The Dolphins need to improve their cornerbacks and Oliver is another very good Day 2 corner prospect, who could make a push to go at the end of round 1


  1.  New England Patriots (from SF): Mike Gesicki, TE, Penn St.

The Patriots have had a lot of success with two tight ends and Gesickis the best pass catcher in the draft.


  1.  Washington Redskins: Kerryon Johnson, RB, Auburn

The Redskins need to give Alex Smith a good running game and Perine is a solid but unspectacular back.


  1.  Green Bay Packers: D.J. Chark, WR, LSU

The Packers love taking wide receivers in the second round (Nelson, Cobb, Adams). Chark gives them a guy who can stretch the field.


  1.  Cincinnati Bengals: Taven Bryan, DT, Florida

Bryan would pair with Geno Atkins and give the Bengals are very good duo in the middle of their defensive line.


  1.  Arizona Cardinals: James Daniels, C/G, Iowa

Daniels is a great center prospect who can also play guard. He has a round 1 grade and could fill in immediately.


  1.  Los Angeles Chargers: Ronnie Harrison, S, Alabama

The Chargers need some depth in the secondary and Harrison could be a starter in his rookie year.


  1.  New York Jets (from SEA): Donte Jackson, CB, LSU

LSU has a good history with cornerbacks and Jackson is a very athletic cover corner who could start right away.


  1.  Dallas Cowboys: Da’Shawn Hand, DT, Alabama

The Cowboys aren’t too many pieces away from being a very good team. Hand is a complete player.


  1.  Detroit Lions: Nick Chubb, RB, Georgia

The Lions running game has been putrid and they need to improve their running game if they are going to make a run in the playoffs.Chubb is a good compliment to Riddick and Abdullah.


  1.  Baltimore Ravens: Austin Corbett, G, Nevada

The Ravens need to re-tool their offensive line and Corbett is a great value here.


  1.  Buffalo Bills: Anthony Miller, WR, Memphis

Miller has not been able to showcase his athletic ability yet  but he has very good hands and creates many mismatch problems.


  1.  Kansas City Chiefs: Malik Jefferson, LB, Texas

Jefferson is a very good athlete and the Chiefs need to improve inside linebackers.


  1.  Carolina Panthers: Justin Reid, S, Stanford

The Panthers cut Kurt Coleman so they need some help in the secondary. Reid is a good athlete and while not has the ceiling of his brother, he may be more fundamentally sound.


  1.  Buffalo Bills (from LAR): Tim Settle, DT, Virginia Tech

Settle is another underrated prospect who can fill a void immediately. The Bills moved on from Marcel Dareus.


  1.  Tennessee Titans: Braden Smith, G, Auburn

Smith is a well rounded offensive linemen and could start immediately.


  1.  Atlanta Falcons: Arden Key, EDGE, LSU

Key had a very good 2016 but a down 2017. There is still some questions of his athletic ability.


  1.  San Francisco 49ers (from NO): James Washington, WR, Oklahoma St.

Washington is somewhat limited but he fits a need. He has good hands but needs to improve his route running and catch the ball less with his body.


  1.  Pittsburgh Steelers: Jessie Bates, S, Wake Forest

Bates is a very well rounded prospect who is starting to come to the surface. He has great athletic ability and can make plays all over the field.


  1.  Jacksonville Jaguars: Hayden Hurst, TE, South Carolina

The Jaguars don’t have a ton of big holes but adding a tight end would be a smart addition. Hurst is on the older side but he can make an immediate impact.


  1.  Minnesota Vikings: Brian O’Neill, OT, Pittsburgh

O’Neill is an incredibly athletic tackle but he needs to get stronger and be able to anchor better. He has a high upside but needs to refine his game.


  1.  New England Patriots: Chukwuma Okorafor, OT, Western Michigan

The Patriots will look for some depth along the offensive line and Okorafor could be starter but similar to O’Neill he needs to refine his game.


  1.  Cleveland Browns (from PHI): Harrison Phillips, DT, Stanford

The Browns need to take the best players available. Phillips is quick twitch interior defensive lineman that can make an immediate impact.


3rd Round


  1.  Buffalo Bills (from CLE): Lorenzo Carter, EDGE, Georgia

The Bills have so many picks they can go a variety of directions but adding an edge rusher early on will be a goal. Carter is a very good athlete and has a long frame.


  1.  New York Giants: Jerome Baker, LB, Ohio St.

Even after trading for Alec Ogletee the Giants still have a hole at linebacker. Only BJ Goodson is coming back and the addition of Ogletree and Baker would give the Giants one of the most athletic linebacking groups in the league.


  1.  Indianapolis Colts: B.J. Hill, DT, North Carolina St.

Hill is a great value in round 3 and can play nose tackle in the NFL. He can push the pocket and is a great run defender.


  1.  Houston Texans: Kolten Miller, OT, UCLA

Miller can play tackle or guard and fits the Texans offense.


  1.  Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Rashad Penny, RB, San Diego St.

The Bucs have moved on from Doug Martin so they will need to find another running back. Penny is a possibility for round 2.


  1.  San Francisco 49ers (from CHI): Frank Ragnow, C, Arkansas

Ragnow could start at center or move inside to guard for the 49ers.


  1.  Denver Broncos: Tony Brown, CB, Alabama

Brown is a long, athletic cornerback who has a high upside even though he hasn’t been in the spotlight. He will help the loss of Aqib Talib


  1.  New York Jets: Ogbonnia Okoronkwo, EDGE, Oklahoma

The Jets need to fix their defense and get more pressure on the quarterback. Okoronkwo fits in the 3-4 better.


  1.  Miami Dolphins: Mike White, QB, Western Kentucky

The Dolphins will go with Ryan Tannehill this year but he gets expensive to be average. White gives them the opportunity to develop a quarterback behind Tannehill.


  1.  San Francisco 49ers: Duke Dawson, CB, Florida

Dawson can play inside and cover the slot for the 49ers as the addition of Richard Sherman on the outside helps.


  1.  Oakland Raiders: Josh Sweat, EDGE, Florida St.

Sweat is probably the most athletic pass rusher in the draft but has struggled to stay healthy.


  1.  Green Bay Packers: Breeland Speaks, DL, Mississippi

The Packers need depth on the defensive line and Speaks fits what the Packers look for along the defensive line.


  1.  Cincinnati Bengals: Uchenna Nwosu, LB, USC

Nwosu is a good outside linebacker prospect and gives the Bengals more athleticism at the position.


  1.  Kansas City Chiefs (from WAS): Equanimeous St. Brown, WR, Notre Dame

The Chiefs need better receivers. Tyreke Hill is a good player but outside of him they don’t have a reliable target.


  1.  Arizona Cardinals: Nathan Sheperd, DL, Fort Hays St.

Sheperd is a small school player who has a huge upside.


  1.  Houston Texans (from SEA): Marcus Allen, S, Penn St.

The Texans have a good defense but need to improve the secondary.


  1.  Dallas Cowboys: Mark Andrews, TE, Oklahoma

Jason Witten is going to be 36 and isn’t the same player he was. Andrews is a comparable player and would benefit from learning from him.


  1.  Detroit Lions: Fred Warner, LB, BYU

Warner is a very good athlete and can play multiple spots for the Lions defense.


  1.  Baltimore Ravens: Kemoko Turay, EDGE, Rutgers

Terrell Suggs is still productive but getting up there in age. The Ravens could use some depth and youth there.


  1.  Los Angeles Chargers: Tyrell Crosby, OT, Oregon

Crosby can play tackle or guard and the Chargers could use some depth.


  1.  Carolina Panthers (from BUF): Dante Pettis, WR, Washington

The Panthers need more help at receiver and someone who can stretch the field.


  1.  Kansas City Chiefs: Kevin Toliver, CB, LSU

Losing Marcus Peters will definitely hurt on the field so the Chiefs need to add some depth at cornerback.


  1.  Los Angeles Rams: Will Clapp, C, LSU

Clapp could move in and start right away at center but he can also play guard.


  1.  Carolina Panthers: Duke Ejiofor, EDGE, Wake Forest

Ejiofor has not been able to work out yet and could move his stock higher in the event he tests well.


  1.  Tennessee Titans: Nyheim Hines, RB, North Carolina St.

Demarco Murray will most likely be getting cut so adding another running back to compliment Derrick Henry will be important. Hines fits that role.


  1.  Atlanta Falcons: Geron Christian, OL, Louisville

The Falcons could use some depth on the right side of their offensive line.


  1.  New Orleans Saints: Trenton Thompson, DL, Georgia

Thompson gives the Saints depth and flexibility along the defensive line.


  1.  Pittsburgh Steelers: Darius Leonard, LB, South Carolina St.

Leonard would be a good fit at inside linebacker for the Steelers.  


  1.  Jacksonville Jaguars: Deon Cain, WR, Clemson

Jewell is a smart, instinctive player that doesn’t have elite athletic ability which could limit him. But he is a good player.


  1.  Minnesota Vikings: Kyzir White, S, West Virginia

The Vikings have a great defense but could use some depth and White could develop into a starter in year 2.


  1.  New England Patriots: Royce Freeman, RB, Oregon

The Patriots could use another running back and Freeman is a versatile, big back.


  1.  Buffalo Bills (from PHI): Josey Jewell, LB, Iowa

Jewell is a smart, instinctive linebacker and can play all 3 linebacker spots for the Bills


  1.  Arizona Cardinals: Ian Thomas, TE, Indiana

The Cardinals need to find a tight end who can help in the passing game and Thomas would be that guy.


  1.  Houston Texans: Jayln Holmes, DL, Ohio St.

Holmes would give the Texans some depth and challenge for a spot opposite JJ Watt.


  1.  Denver Broncos: Tyquan Lewis, EDGE, Ohio St.

The Broncos need some more help getting to the quarterback. Lewis is a big strong pass rusher who can help in run defense as well.


  1. Cincinnati Bengals: DaeSean Hamilton, WR, Penn St.

Tyler Boyd has been a disappointment but Hamilton could give the Bengals the #2 receiver they have been looking for.
