2015 NFL Mock Draft: With The Twenty-First Pick, The Cincinnati Bengals Select...

New, comments

Bless you for making it this far. The BRB Mock Draft continues with a tour of the AFC North, starting with the Cincinnati Bengals and the 21st pick.

Thomas Campbell-USA TODAY Sports

Fun fact: 31 other teams have won a playoff game since the Cincinnati Bengals did back in 1990-something. Our boy Free Range is in charge of hypothetically helping them fix this. Here's his pick...

With the 21st pick of the 2015 BRB Mock Draft, the Cincinnati Bengals select Malcom Brown (DT--Texas).

With the last couple of off the wall picks, I’m tempted to do something just as unconventional, but the pick here boils down to what I believe the Bengals need most, help on the defensive and offensive lines. There are some great choices here for top-flight tackles, but I believe that the Bengals can get value there in the second round. Defensive tackle, however, offers much less depth in this draft and therefore is going to be the pick here at #21.

Malcom Brown has the wide frame and athleticism that makes defensive coordinators drool and his ability to penetrate will definitely boost a Bengal pass rush that sorely needs it.

Brown is a tad raw, and needs to improve his technique and his power at the point of attack, but has the intangibles that could make him an All-Pro caliber player. Worst case, Brown will step in as a strong rotational player behind recently re-signed Domata Peko, with the best case having him step in as the day 1 starter, collapsing the pocket and laying the groundwork for a solid Bengal d-line in future seasons.

The clear, viscous liquid oozing from your screen is likely Tim's tears, caused by the thought of a Longhorn languishing on the Bengals.

As fun as it is to poke fun at the Bengals and their decades of misery, they're fairly talented. Whether or not Malcom Brown adds to their cause, I'll leave to you. Sound off on the pick down below. Check out some of his highlights here:

bigralph and the Pittsburgh Steelers are up next. Good luck!
