We don't need to upgrade BJGE at this time, we just need a good COP back with good hands and those are available later in the draft.. Someone like Kerwynn Williams or Kenjon Barner or even Zac Stacy. I know some are high on Dennis Johnson but i'm just not a big fan on taking guys who've already had ACL surgeries and missed seasons in the past( I know some come back fine and some don't).We're in the situation where I would rather draft someone who has no injury history and who can play now. As far as Taylor goes i'm just not a fan of his and he is too similar to what we have now in BJGE(not much speed). If I was going to draft a bigger back I'd go with Eddie Lacy and I'd even bring in Latavius Murray UCF 6'3 223 4.5 speed if I was looking for bigger backs.

At this point I would not be upset if we went Montgomery in 1 and Oakafor at the top of the 2nd.
For the BAL game they need to start Still, Thompson, Gilberry, . Give Geno and Johnson a break.

I do like Montgomery, seems like he is already built for the pro's.
What's your thoughts on Dion Jordan?

1-Jordan
2-Lacy
2-Valccro
3-T/G

I like Jordan but I think someone will fall in love with him and draft him in the mid 1st.Not sure we need a T/G in the 3rd unless Andre is not coming back then I'd probably draft OT in the 1st or 2nd.

I wouldn't mind drafting Barrett Jones in the 2nd. I'm leaning towards a
1st. Ogletree
2nd. Bernard
2nd. Jones
3rd. Rambo
4th Hunt

Yeah he has got good hands & can play a jump ball.

Alexander's bone on bone knee will scare most teams off from a long-term deal. He could never play extended periods in St Louis, and has had at least 3 surgeries on it, maybe 4. He's only played half a season in SD. Danario is talented for sure, but his knee, by all accounts, isn't a whole lot better than Antonio Bryant's was.

With the 1st 4 picks, the Bengals need some combination of DE, S, LB, and OL. Maybe substitute WR for OL. RB's are not stacked at the top this year. A compliment to BJGE can be found starting in the 4th.

I'm ready to see Thompson in action. I think he's going to be a pretty good player. mainly a run stopper.

with the talent we have i'm not sure he's getting on the field anytime soon. They've been playing Still more than him.

WR's under 6'0 are notoriously unsuccessful if played on the outside. If we took him I'd hope he'd only be used in the slot. DeSean Jackson is an exception to the rule.

I would be mad if we got a center for our 2nd round pick. I want RB first safety second.

I think it speaks highly of Sims talent that he immediately passed Still and Thompson when he came back. I'd like to see Geathers lose some playing time to Still and Thompson.

I don't think it would hurt us deactivating the invisible Terminator and suiting up Still or Thompson. Charles can play FB in a pinch and Peko could be used as a battering ram at the goal line if necessary.

Isn't Vincent Jackson 6'5? I really hope we dont take Austin though, small guy who would have to play inside, Id much rather put Sanu inside and get a bigger guy for the #2 (Woods, Williams,Hunter, Patterson types, Also like Cobi Hamilton in 3).

I have no idea why Quinton Patton isn't getting any love on the boards. Johnathon Banks said he was the most complete WR he faced this year. Coming from a 1st Rd CB who plays in the SEC against the best says alot to me.

Dude had 21 catches and 4 TD's against Texas A&M this year.

Personal preference I suppose many of us have seen more of the guys I listed over Quinton Patton and Louisiana Tech, from the little I have seen he has looked pretty good, I plan to be watching more of his games later into the off season.

I do not understand why the predominant opinion's is to take a WR. Please.....I think we did just fine with what we drafted last year. If we draft a WR with any of the first 5 picks (unless one one drops for some reason) I would scream. The need to upgrade the running game, even with the way todays game is trending, is more important, be it a stud rb or a lineman.

We need another WR it's pretty evident.
