Default Rank the RB's

Give me at least your top 5 you would like to see on the Bengals. For instance you may want Zac Stacy on the Bengals, especially as an UDFA.
I am thinking it over... I'll update later with mine. I will say Eddie Lacy tops my list. Yes I know he will take our 1st rounder most likely, but I like him overall the best out of this group.

Gillislee, an all-American, all-around back, seems a bit low.

With the projected rounds you have assigned my top 5 (not in any order) would be:
Ellington 2B
Barner- 4
K. Williams- 6B
Wood- 6B
Stacy- FA

Who named Gillislee an All-American?

The projected rounds are from CBS Sports. I only changed Lacy from 2 to 1-2. I think he will go in the first.

I like your picks though. I am growing to really like Ellington, and I like Barner's speed. Stacy as a FA would be a great move as well.

1. Giovani Bernard

2. Eddie Lacy

3. Joseph Randle

4. Jawan Jamison

5. Andre Ellington

Most of these guys will have to be drafted in either round 2 or 3. Basically my list consists of who I like the best and it wouldn't matter to me which of those rounds we got them because we need the biggest upgrade in talent regardless.

I wouldn't mind walking away with a duo of Lacy and Rouse and then clearing our backfield with the exception of Green-Ellis.

I know it won't happen, but I'd love to get Eddie Lacy and La'Veon Bell. I just doubt we use two high picks on RBs. Lacy might take a 1st, and Bell a 3rd. Never know though, Lacy could be there in the second and Bell could drop to the 4th.

With that said.
1.Eddie Lacy
2.La'Veon Bell
3.Giovanni Bernard
4.Andre Ellington
5.Zac Stacy

Lacy is the only guy that I am really like "Wow, I want him on the Bengals" though. Although, I do like Stacy and Ellington the more I watch videos on them.

1. Gillislee makes most since for me. And I hope he stays hidden so the bengals can grab him in 3rd

2. Bernard love the kid but do worry about injuries

3. Randle Great all around back who would be a great replacement for Leonard. Randle catches and blocks very nice. I worry about his running style and injury

4. Lacy he looks to be a bear and I think he's between T Richardson and Ingram as far as talent goes. I wouldn't be upset but again injuries have been a problem

5. Jamison I didn't think this kid was eligible but I do like bowling ball type backs with good shifty moves. Not a great blitz blocker

My ultimate Bengal dream team has to be:
1. John Connor
2. Law firm
3. Randle
4. gillislee


I honestly believe that backfield could be the best in the NFL and would create amazing mismatches. Randle and Gillislee in backfield with 2 TE's and AJ out wide. Scary! Both Gillislee and Randle are very versatile with run, catch, and blocking.

Bell #1?
I just like big backs that can punish a defense, but we need a faster back this year.

Supposedly your man Michael has been looking good at practice.



According to CBS Sports' Dane Brugler, Texas A&M RB Christine Michael has "finished every carry with conviction" at East-West Shrine practices while showing an "NFL-quality" physical skill set.
Michael landed in new coach Kevin Sumlin's doghouse in 2012 due to apparent attitude issues, but he's looked like a man on a mission in St. Pete. Fresh after handling just 88 regular season carries, 5-foot-11, 220-pound Michael has run hard and given "full effort" in Shrine practices. Michael had the look of a future early-round pick when he rushed 149 times for 899 yards (6.03 YPC) and eight touchdowns in nine games in 2011, before tearing his ACL in November of that year.

Stacy won't go undrafted you can count on that.

Yeah, love me some Christine Michael. Sumlin did him no favors this year. I don't think he even got on the field in the A&M Bowl game.

He did something mighty fierce to **** Sumlin off. No idea what it was.
The last I saw of Michael, and maybe I missed him, but the last I remember was the punching incident.
So maybe that did him in.

I thought I saw someone did, and maybe ESPN or SI or Writers gave him the nod, I don't know. But I pulled up the AP all-america team and noticed Elam was. I think I got the two gators mixed up...my mistake!

He actually played the week after the punch and scored 2 TDs (one a 38 yarder) on only 4 carries.
