If the Cincinnati Bengals can't reach a long-term extension with QB Andy Dalton before the NFL draft, Eastern Illinois QB Jimmy Garoppolo would fit perfectly as the team's sleeper pick with a first-round trade down.

Much like QB Andy Dalton, WR A.J. Green is poised for a monster contract extension with the Cincinnati Bengals if the team can afford to keep Green. If there are doubts that Green can be extended, then WR Cody Latimer may prove to be a perfect sleeper pick for the Bengals with a traded-down first-round pick.
