FIX that CENTER POSITION give ANDY more time. Last half season when they challenged DALTON to step up and be a leader they seem like they got his release quicker and moving faster overall. NOW he's not smooth , misses hot reads , throws to hard when soft ones needed, over throws ,, under throws , He's a guy time would help big time . ELITE QB not yet ,, very serviceable QB ,YOU BET. O-line needs attn.

Not sure what you are talking about. Whitworth's natural position is OT. Specifically, LT. He played OT for LSU, and was drafted to be an OT for the Bengals. Yes, he did well the two years he was moved to OG for the Bengals, but his natural position is LT.

Frederick (C/LG) from Wisconsin would be a great pickup for the Bengals, as he is both a great LG and C. Have him compete both with Boling at LG and Robinson at C and put the best two on the field (either Frederick-Robinson, Boling-Frederick, or Boling-Robinson).

Flucker will be a RT, so the only way we draft him is if Andre doesn't resign.

I'd love to have Kyle Long from Oregon. 6'7 303lbs, and has the bloodlines (Chris Long, Howie Long)

Raw in terms of technique, but his potential is through the roof. Better athlete than Chris.

This kid has a lot of talent. I think he was set back in college because of playing baseball or something like that, or he would be rated much higher. Another possible tackle candidate to draft late or sign as FA is Reid Fragel out of The Ohio State. Played amazing at RT this year, especially considering he was a TE until this season
