Bengals News: Cincinnati To Seek Pass Rush Help In 1st Round Of NFL Draft?

The Cincinnati Bengals ranked dead last in sacks in 2014, and two notable ESPN draft experts have the Bengals addressing their pass rush woes in the first round of the 2015 NFL Draft.

Here's ESPN's Coley Harvey with the report:

In his second mock draft, posted Thursday, ESPN Insider and draft analyst Todd McShay had Cincinnati selecting Clemson's Vic Beasley. And in his latest mock draft, fellow ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. had the Bengals picking Kentucky's Bud Dupree. The 6-foot-3, 270-pound end still remained on the board on McShay's second mock draft. McShay didn't project him to be a first-round pick. 

The Bengals have long adhered to the "best available" approach to the NFL Draft, picking the overall top talent on the board when it gets to their turn. It's possible they could do that again in 2015, but the team's glaring need for pass rush help could have them stepping away from convention when draft day rolls around.
