Default Alabama Draft Prospects

I agree with many of you on these boards that running back is a hole on this team and we should draft Eddie Lacy, who is an absolute monster running the ball. One position however, I do not see many talking about is center. The center is the leader of the offensive line and right now we do not have one on our roster who is capable of making all the line calls while also being able to effectively run and/or pass block. I think Barrett Jones would make a great addition to our line at either the 21st or 37th picks.

My question:
I know it is rare for NFL teams to draft multiple guys from the same college in the early rounds. That being said, do you think it would be very likely that the Bengals would take two Alabama prospects (though needed) in the draft with possibly two of their first three picks?

I dont think they specifically try to shy away from drafting 2 players early from the same school its just there are so many schools that its likely someone from another school is better at the next pick.

With that said i dont want our first 2 to be jones and lacy. Your right our center position needs help but good centers can be had in the 3rd or late 2nd if needed. I dont want either at 21 but wouldnt hate lacy in 2A(would rather have bernard)

There are a ton of threads and posts about upgrading the center position.

As for colleges, the Bengals have drafted teammates before.

If we draft teammates, they'll be from Georgia.

If we end up drafting teammates, it will most likely draft will be Alex Ogletree and Bacarro Rambo.

Possibly Tavarres King and Shawn Williams in the third day.

I don't see 2 Alabama teammates that I would like (not at the draft cost anyway)
