Stacked Against the Pick:

The Bengals have a good wide receiver crew that at first glance doesn’t look like it needs any major improvements. Receivers Brandon Tate, Andrew Hawkins, and A.J. Green are the main receivers Cincinnati has and all three are young and able to produce high numbers when called on by Andy Dalton, the Bengals QB.

The Bengals aren’t really looking for a receiver in this years draft, mainly a running back and a few players on the defensive side so I don’t see them taking Wilson unless he is there really late or doesn’t get picked up at all and  is still there in free agency, he would be a good addition to the team.

The Perfect Storm:

Marquess Wilson would be a good player and would fit in well with the Bengals offense and the young talented squad they have in Cincinnati. With Wilson’s athleticism, size, height, and ability to produce the numbers he can, he would fit in well and would be able to come in when called on and it wouldn’t be something the coaching staff would have to worry about with him not being able to produce the numbers that he produced in college.

Likelihood of Getting Drafted by Bengals:

C-, with the receiving crew that the Bengals have I can’t see them taking a player who had issues in college to back up their already fine receivers.
