Default Anyone with ESPN Insider access...

Can someone with ESPN Insider access go to the following link for Mel Kiper's mid-season NFL draft preview and post the info that is there for the Bengals? I'm curious to see what they say, but I don't have access.
http://insider.espn.go.com/nfl/story...ble-selections

It will be interesting to see what Kiper states as our team's biggest needs and then who he thinks we should select.

Cincinnati Bengals

Top emerging needs: DE, LB, S, WR, RB

Analysis: The Bengals are on the edge of taking that next step after reaching the playoffs in 2011, but lack consistency week to week. The team currently has a lot of areas where it could use an upgrade, but no single glaring weakness. The Bengals are middle of the road in a number of areas, and will be looking for the best fits to help them immediately. They could certainly use another pass-rusher, help at linebacker (where I'm not sure they really like what they have currently), at safety, or at skill positions on offense outside of A.J. Green. They could go just about anywhere.


Drafting tomorrow: Matt Elam, S, Florida

Awful pick.

Where we are likely to be picking Elam is a huge reach, and I don't want him anyway.

Agreed. So many more sound safeties before Elam, and definitely a reach. If this were the case, may as well stay with Mays.

Yep. I'd probably even move DE up considering the depth of both RB and S this year.

If we took Elam in 1 I would just have to give up on this team. A slower, smaller Taylor Mays is not anything we should even drunkenly discuss taking in 1.

I agree. There are 2 to 3 DE that could help this team right away. None will be there even at the top of the first

We asked him about the time he fumbled without being hit and the time he threw an interception without being pressured and the other pick he threw -- under pressure but stupidly off his back foot toward double coverage. All of that happened on three consecutive possession, a 10-minute fusillade of fail that turned a one-possession game into a blowout loss...

That is my assessment of him as well.
