- WR: A.J. Green has already reached superstar status, so it may not make sense for Cincinnati to spend another high pick at this position. That said, Green and the Bengals still need another reliable weapon or two.
- DE: Out are Frostee Rucker and Jonathan Fanene, and in are Derrick Harvey and Jamaal Anderson, a pair of first-round busts. Cincinnati needs better production up front.
- S: Re-signing Reggie Nelson helps the Bengals, who said goodbye to Chris Crocker after a brutal 2011. Can Taylor Mays step up and play a meaningful role? The Bengals might not be willing to risk waiting to find out.
