Which player should the Cincinnati Bengals target with each of their 2015 NFL Draft picks?

The Cincinnati Bengals ended up with a 10-5-1 record during the 2014 season, but came up short to the Indianapolis Colts in the first round of the playoffs. There is no question that they have the type of talent to make a run at the playoffs again in 2015.

That being said, there are plenty of needs for the Bengals to target in the 2015 NFL Draft after not being too busy in free agency.

A.J. Hawk was signed after being released by the Green Bay Packers earlier in the offseason, and will be a nice defensive addition. Michael Johnson was re-signed to a four-year contract as well, and both Devon Still and Rey Maualuga were re-signed as well. Those moves are all quality deals that will help keep Cincinnati in playoff contention.

Every single year there are players that teams can find throughout the draft that will help them immediately. Last year, the Bengals were able to snag budding star running back Jeremy Hill. He appears to be the main focal point of their offense heading into the 2015 season, and is a huge addition with the struggles that Andy Dalton has had throughout his career.

Cincinnati will need to be looking for some of those difference makers this year in the draft. They have seven rounds to add on the necessary talent that they need to compete in the AFC playoff race once again.
