Wilson is that he only started 17 games. His

Bengals owner Mike Brown offered an explanation for why Cincinnati decided to take a chance on running back Joe Mixon in a letter published by the<em>Cincinnati Enquirer</em>.Brown called Mixon “very talented football playerwho did a terrible thing his freshman year at college Geno Atkins Jersey Limited ,” in reference to Mixon striking a woman and breaking bones in her face while playing at Oklahoma.The letter runs through Mixon’s history, and says he was a “good citizen” following the incident and dealt with the consequences, also noting that Mixon and the woman, Amelia Molitor, recently settled their civil lawsuit in person. “While the circumstances that led up to the incident are unclear – what is clear is that it is unacceptable for a man to strike a woman.”Article continues below ...“The Bengals take pride in our hometown and want to provide winning football on the field and successful players off the field. That is the reason we drafted Joe – he is a rare football talent, and his conduct over the past three years leads us to believe he can help us win football games and also become a productive member of this community,” Brown wrote.“In making our decision, we took a risk. In this case, the risk has an upside as well as a downside. We believe Joe has put this behind him and that he can turn into the player and community member that creates a plus for Cincinnati. We are going to do everything in our power to make this happen. Our hope is that time will prove that this opportunity is deserved, and perhaps – if given a chance – Joe can write a chapter in Cincinnati sports history that both he and Cincinnati can be proud of.”Cincinnati’s selection of Mixon with the 48th pick in the draft was controversial given the questions attached to his character and conduct. Brown's letter came in wake of a local advocacy group asking the Bengals to publicly take a stand against domestic violence and sexual assault.“This is definitely going to be attached to my name the rest of my life and the end of the day I'm going to do whatever I can to move forward and move past it,” Mixontold NFL Network last week. “Just keep playing and I look forward to having a great career [in Cincinnati] and being the best teammate and person possible.”This article originally appeared on This is one scenario where the Bengals could add a quarterback of the future while still addressing their need at linebacker."The draft is drawing closer, and we are weeks away from seeing who the Bengals will add in this years draft. While one-round mock drafts are fun and entertaining, it usually will leave you wondering what your team will do in the next round. That is especially true if the player projected to your team doesn’t exactly address a need.Since it is becoming more and more common for mock drafters to send a quarterback to Cincinnati Dre Kirkpatrick Jersey , it seems like a good time to look at a mock draft that goes beyond the first round after having the Bengals take a quarterback.This mock draft was created by The Athletics’ Dane Brugler. It is a seven-round mock draft that was created based on what he has been hearing from around the league. It also doesn’t include any trades. Here is his first selection for the Bengals:11. Cincinnati Bengals – Dwayne Haskins, QB, Ohio StateIt seems like the news that the Bengals are interested in a quarterback in the first round (whether you believe that rumor or not) and the rumor that NFL teams aren’t as high on Haskins have really come about at the same time.When the draft process first started, it seemed like very unlikely that Haskins would even be an option for the Bengals at 11. At that time, it seemed like their marriage with linebacker Devin White was inevitable. Things have really come a long way though. Now Haskins is projected to fall, and White is commonly paired with the Buccaneers at fifth overall.You may have your opinions on Haskins, but regardless of his strengths and weaknesses, this would be the Bengals buying a lottery ticket for a franchise quarterback. Haskins would also be landing in one of the more premiere locations for a rookie quarterback, because he would likely be afforded time to sit behind a veteran and learn. Most of these first-round quarterbacks will likely be counted on to start very early in their career. Haskins having this time would allow him to work on weakness like his mechanics and decision making. He would also be able to build up some familiarity with guys like A.J. Green and Tyler Boyd during practices, which would help with his down field throwing. Not to mention having a guy like Zac Taylor being able to groom you for a season or two in his system is bound to help polish off some his rough edges he’d have as a rookie.What is very interesting about this pick is that the Bengals also had Devin Bush on the board to fill their huge hole at linebacker. Opting for Haskins would be an interesting move, but Brugler doesn’t have the Bengals waiting long to address that hole.Here is Brugler’s second pick for the Bengals:42. Cincinnati Bengals – Mack Wilson, LB, AlabamaIn this mock draft Jordan Evans Jersey , Wilson ends up being the third linebacker off the board, and only one more goes at the end of the second round. This ends up being the only time Cincinnati takes a linebacker in this mock draft as well.Wilson may not get the hype that White and Bush are getting in the first round, but he will still end up being a quality player. As Brugler states, Wilson will be very helpful as the Bengals try to find a linebacker who can come in and solve their issue of of covering at the linebacker position.The major thing working against Wilson is that he only started 17 games. His inexperience led to some inconsistent tape, but the flashes are enough to give you hope that his ceiling is still very high in the NFL. This gives an interesting case where the Bengals end up addressing their biggest need without using their first round pick. It is a scenario that most Bengals fans would likely be happy with at the end of the day, and it gives the Taylor era some solid footing to start out on.Here’s how the rest of this mock draft played out: 72. Cincinnati Bengals – Max Scharping, OT, Northern Illinois110. Cincinnati Bengals – Gerald Willis, DT, Miami (Fla.)149. Cincinnati Bengals – Isaac Nauta, TE, Georgia183. Cincinnati Bengals – David Sills, WR Preston Brown Jersey , West Virginia198. Cincinnati Bengals – Mitch Hyatt, OL, Clemson210. Cincinnati Bengals – Devine Ozigbo, RB, Nebraska211. Cincinnati Bengals – Montre Hartage, CB, Northwestern213. Cincinnati Bengals – Shareef Miller, EDGE, Penn State223. Cincinnati Bengals – Keelan Doss, WR, UC-Davis
