Andre Smith, Michael Johnson, Thomas Howard, Kevin Huber, Josh Brown, Wallace Gilberry, Adam Jones, Terrence Newman, Pat Sims.
WR Mike Wallace
- Hear me out with this...Wallace with Green would be daunting for defenses. With AJ's ability to play anywhere on the field I would be COMPLETELY fine with picking up the vertical and playmaking threat in Mike Wallace. With the issues he's having in Pittsburgh I also believe Wallace would love to burn his old team twice a year here in Cincy. With all the money we have(50.5 million) this makes too much “cents”
QB Matt Moore
-I think Matt has the potential to be a stud in this league. If given a real chance, with a real squad, he will shine!
DE Lawrence Jackson
-He’s a former first rounder outa SC. At 6'4 271lbs, he fits our mold and would be a great rotational talent. I think we could sign him for cheap.
TE Leonard Pope
- At 6'8 265lbs i believe he comes in and takes over the Roland project in our BIG BOY package at TE. Pope is huge, and a great blocker, also displays solid hands.
KR Ted Ginn Jr
- Ginn;s electric, and arguably the fastest player in the league. Lets tell Tate to get F***ed, and bring in Ginn. He'd be epic.
1. Kenny Vaccaro FS Texas
Vaccaro is the best safety in this draft, if he's there at 21 GRAB HIM. He packs a punch with almost every hit, rarely ever missing tackles. Has a true knack for the ball, with great instincts, and displays incredible ball skills. Very athletic, physical, smart, Safety paired with Nelson locks up our back end for a while. IMO everyone on defense gets better with this pick.
2a. Menelik Watson OT Florida State
Watson has boxed for most of his life and the proof is in his footwork. He has incredible quickness for his size and moves extremely well. With his long reach huge frame, speed, and quickness Watson is destined for all pro status at LT. But he has alot to learn yet. At 6'6 325 lbs Hes very raw. I say we kick him inside at LG...with his mobility, long arms, and feet, he would be a monster. We need to resign andre, when whittworth gets too old watson is his replacement. by then Watson will be ready. Watson style is needed on our line. Lets get boling outa there.
2b. Jamar Taylor CB Boise State
Taylor was the standout in a pass defense that ranked third in the nation. According to Boise state coaches Taylor was clocked at 4.33 on his 40. taylor finished the year with 51 tackles, 13 pass defensed, 4 tackles for loss, 2.5 sacks, and 4 picks. at 5'11 190 Taylor is physical with great instincts and explosive burst being able to undercut routes consistently. Taylor is a stud and i think competes for the starting spot oppo hall. Id be good for Dre.
3. Jamie Collins SLB Southern Miss
Collins is the only OLB in this draft i really trust and would pall my eggs in 1 basket for. I have zero worry about his size at 6'3 245lbs he is the prototype OLB you want here. He has an extremely high football IQ playing DB OLB and DE through out his career. He can cover, rush, and smash. He flys around the field and is a man to fear on defense. Collins, and Burfict make an impact day 1.
4. Jawan Jamison RB Rutgers
This guy is 5’8 200 lbs and is a solid recking ball. Jawan is shifty with great quickness and good speed to break the big 1. He can run you over, shake you, stiff arm you to the dirt, spin right around you, or catch a pass outa the backfield and blow right by you. These small tree stump type backs are the way to go, they are hard to find behind the O-line and are shifty enough to go right around you or plow over you b/c of their great leverage. Here in the 4th Jamison is a steal.
5. David Bass DE Missouri Western State
Bass is 6’4 265lbs and a freak at the division 11 football. He won best defensive player of the year and over his 4 year career he racked up 40.5 sacks. Bass in our rotation on the D-line would make us absolutely dominant next year…70 sacks season next yr for us.
6a. Zac Stacy RB Vanderbilt
Stacy is a monster at 5’8 215lbs. That’s MJD. Stacy has great hands and amazing feet. He’s a very powerful runner, with surprising speed. Could run in the 4.4’s. He has good lateral balance and carries would be tacklers for days…his feet never stop. With his size and catching ability I see him being a top 5 back in the league being our starter with Jamison sparing him. Stacy is a great premier back and would be a great comp in our three headed monster as Stacy, Jamison, and Johnson. Fresh legs keeps the chains moving. Our running game was our weakest link and we had a top 10 offensive line…that doesn’t make sense. RB is priority I say we address it 3 times and we strike gold all three times.
6b. Vince Williams MLB Florida State
Possibly my favorite pick in the draft. Without the resigning of Skuta Vince Williams is a major upgrade at the position for a number of reasons. Williams is natural MIKE but has the speed and strength to play SAM and excel. With the concern in Howard and his Achilles, having someone behind him as a security blanket would be fantastic. With William’s instincts, strength, speed, and knack for the ball carrier, I think he is a potential starter in the league for us outside. He is 6’1 247lbs and runs a 4.6, and lays hat, reminds me a lot of Lawrence Timmons. Comes from a very strong and “power house” type defense at FSU…something tells me Burfict and Williams will shine together.
Marquess Wilson WR Washington State
He's first round talent, but an idiot...million dollar body 10 cent brain. If he makes it udfa he's worth it to me.
Dennis Johnson RB Arkansas
Dennis Johnson is 5’8 212 lbs. Very similar to the others drafted earlier. Has the ability size, and power to be and everydown back. Difference between him and the others is his speed and hands. Dennis Johnson is lightning quick and outside gio Bernard(1rst rounder) dennis Johnson has the best hands in the league at rb. Doesn’t drop a thing. I say we rebuild this whole backfield and start pounding away towards that super bowl…it can all be on Andy or its not going to happen. Stacy, Jamison, and Dennis Johnson would be incredible. Late round backs that all will be studs in the league on our team.
Sean Renfree QB Duke
Renfree is 6’4 230 lbs. Very raw but from a prostyle offense. Renfree could be the project we are looking for. I have my concerns with Dalton hence the Matt Moore pick up and drafting Renfree would put me at ease completely. Not that he is the immediate answer but he could be the late future of this team. Cannon for an arm good mobility but still a pocket passer and played on a successful duke football team. Reminds me a lot of Tony Romo with his quick release and powerful arm. I think with the right amount of coaching confidence and time put in Renfree becomes a stud, and a starter.
