After a No Huddle with a variety of local representatives Friday, a revised Bengals.com Annual Media Mock Draft reflects Cincinnati still has a shot at a trio of defensive players in Miami of Florida linebacker Jon Beason, Texas cornerback/kick returner Aaron Ross and teammate Michael Griffin, a safety.
1. RAIDERS: QB JaMarcus Russell, LSU: Al Davis can so anything he wants here and will.
2. LIONS: DE Gaines Adams, Clemson: Anybody but another receiver.
3. BROWNS: QB Brady Quinn, Notre Dame: The anti-Charlie Frye-hey-we're-in-a-division-with Carson-Palmer-Ben-Roethlisberger realization pick.
4. BUCS: WR Calvin Johnson: Moe, Larry, and Curley will be throwing to him but he's the stud of the draft.
5. CARDINALS: RB Adrian Peterson, Oklahoma: No, he's not Ki-Jana Carter.
6. REDSKINS: S LaRon Landry, LSU: Now lead the league in top 10 safeties.
7. VIKINGS: DE Jamaal Anderson, Arkansas: Tough defense needs a pass rusher to finish it off.
8. FALCONS: DT Amobi Okoye, Louisville: Okoye goes home to his old college coach and new Falcons head man Bobby Petrino.
9. DOLPHINS: LT Joe Thomas, Wisconsin: Where they took Richmond Webb in '90.
10. TEXANS: LT Levi Brown, Penn State : Now they get a guy to protect the quarterback after David Carr leaves.
11 49ERS: MLB Patrick Willis, Mississippi: They coached him at the Senior Bowl and fell in love with him. They still do since a week ago.
12. BILLS: CB Darrelle Revis, Pittsburgh: Now the thinking in Buffalo is they can get a running back later and they need to replace Nate Clements right now.
13. RAMS: DE Adam Carriker, Nebraska: They love what amounts to a local kid, Grant Wistrom II.
14 PANTHERS: S Reggie Nelson, Florida: If Anderson is gone they want Nelson because Mike Minter is their only legit NFL safety.
15. STEELERS: CB Leon Hall, Michigan: Old secondary coach Mike Tomlin takes a DB in his first pick as the head man.
16. PACKERS: RB Marshawn Lynch, Cal: No. 4 has to hand off to somebody or he isn't going to be No. 1 for very long.
17. JAGUARS: DE Jarvis Moss, Florida: Best pass rusher on the board.
18. BENGALS: According to a consensus of 10 forecasters, Beason, Ross, Griffin are the best defenders left . Take your pick. Me? Get the corner in the second round, the linebacker in the second day and give Griffin No. 34 in honor of Kevin Kaesviharn.
