Who will the Bengals draft this year — and who should they?

ESPN commentator Mel Kiper, one of the best-known analytical voices of the NFL Draft, agreed with WCPO’s Laurel Pfahler that the Bengals would probably like to use their No.

11 pick on quarterback Dwayne Haskins Thursday night.

New coach Zac Taylor is, after all, a former quarterback and offensive specialist himself.

But Kiper doesn’t think they’ll have the opportunity to snag Ohio State’s most wanted.

Denver, New York or Oakland will gobble him up first, he said.
