The NFL Draft is just around the corner and Thursday will see a new class of players enter the league. But while we know the list of names who will be turning pro starting Thursday night, the question is who will assist in turning the class pro and where will the prospects land.
As always, quarterback is a big position to keep an eye on and there are already some surprise teams that may take one higher than we think. ESPN’s Chris Mortensen said to keep an eye on the Kansas City Chief but he also mentions the Cincinnati Bengals as a possibility as well.
Another “surprise” QB team to watch: Bengals, even though there are needs at CB & DL. Teddy Bridgewater is in discussion as fallback option

Andy Dalton’s struggles have been well documented as he’s very much a regular season quarterback who can’t win in the postseason. Cincinnati also may just be looking at a young quarterback to back him up, but using a high draft pick on a quarterback tends to send a more violent message than that.
