Default a draft some won't like

1.DeAndre Hopkins WR Clemson (trade back for a 3rd) (starter)

2a.Khaseem Greene LB Rutgers(day 1 starter)

2b.Travis Frederick 6'4 338 C Wisc(day 1 starter)

3a.Travis Kelce TE UC (day 1 starter)

3b.Mike Gillislee RB Fla

3c Stedman Bailey WR West Va

4.DJ Swearinger SS South Carolina (day 1 starter)

5a.Kiko Alonso MLB Oregon

5b.(Livings Comp) Leon McFadden CB San Diego St

6a.Sam Brenner G/T Utah (roland replacement)

6b.Marquise Goodwin WR/KR Tx (bye bye Tate)


Trade Gresham for a 3rd and fill another hole. Kelce will fill his spot nicely.

Before commenting on the picks, I think you forgot an extra 3rd rounder.
You traded back for a 3rd + traded Gresham for a 3rd, right?

So Kelce jumps Gresham AND Charles?

And if you're going to replace Gresham with a third rounder, there are other ones out there that are much more highly rated and talented. Reed from U FLA might be available in that range.

Kelce has been upgraded to 3rd status as of now! Reed is more of a pass catching TE where as Kelce can do both.

Kelce and Charles can battle it out in camp but I think Kelce could be the starter over him.

I think drafting Frederick C Wisc in the 2nd would be HUGE for us he's 6'4 338.

You trade outside of the first only for a 3rd?

That's an interesting idea. I'll probably put him in my next few mocks.

Atlanta is losing Gonzalez and they have Konz at guard. I would be open to swaping Gresham for Konz. While Konz has struggled at guard, his ceiling is high. Gresham seems to have peaked for us and may do well with a change of scenery.

AT the moment, He's really a nice 1st round value pick for us if he falls.

Is Gresham showing signs as being a Bengal we want for his entire career?...I don't think he is, so i agree, we should trade him now & get a high pick while his name is still good.

Who would trade for Gresham? Wouldn't the drops and poor blocking be a deterrent that brings his value down in trade?

I imagine Konz is being groomed at Center, getting his feet wet. Many young lineman struggle entering the league so I doubt they'd abandon him this early.

If you're the Bengals, you sit the kid down and tell it straight about his play, and let him know you're having an open competition with Charles, who we've seen too little of. No need yet to over-draft another guy when you haven't seen the one you have invested a 4th rounder in so far.

I love the idea of the first three picks! I think though that we should consider all WR in the first round and if DeAndre Hopkins is the best then we pick him.

Also I don't want Gresh leaving for just a third. I think he has been having some bad games and can fix the issues he's having.

Other wise!

If Gresham is so bad that we have to give up on him after only 3 years, then why on Earth would a team give us a 3rd for him?

Kelce is a 3rd rd grade as of now and moving up. Sanu played good for a few games thats it. Jones has not proven anything yet. the 2 WR's i have us drafting are clearly UPGRADES and helps our team. thats what the draft is all about.

no sanu played well and progressed in everygame he played in, until his foot injury. He will be back to beastin next year. Sanu caught everything and dragged defenders in the process. Sanu alone showed alot of promise in just his rookie season. Marvin jones might need more time but we all know the talent is there from what we saw in him in HIS rookie season as well. I liked ur idea of hartline with my mock. There is no need to go WR....espeacially in the first, and hopkins aint even that sweet.
Green,sanu,jones,hartline,hawkins,whalen looks sweet to me.

Hopkins is a BEAST you saw what he did against a top defense.

Sanu is a beast, did u see what he did when he played against NFL defenses. Lets say we do go wr, would much rather have cordarelle patterson over hopkins, if we went round 1 wr. But we wont.

WR and C with 2 out of our first 3 picks isn't addressing our biggest needs.
