At least management's finally taking a clue and realizing we need a defense... they have a poll on their website just to see what the public thinks:
20%- Defensive tackle
17%- D end
25%- Linebacker
29%- defensive back
5%- tight end (if they draft a tight end in any of early rounds I might kill someone)

What does everybody think for the first two rounds?

Forgot to point out that the management's looking at linebackers, defensive ends, safeties, corners, and defensive tackles for at least the first two rounds. They need to spend all of their top picks on those things in my opinion

18th........ then 50th...... then I believe they traded their third round pick......


But there should be solid defenders who can contribute to the team left in the mid-to-high rounds

They will draft someone who just got out on bail.

Yeah, since there was a reason to post that and since that comment has merit........ :rolleyes:

With the first two picks, I think the Bengals should take either a cover corner or Quinn Pitcock at defensive tackle


Then they don't have a third round pick, but in the rest of the rounds they should get a defensive end or two, a backer (preferably middle), a safety, and all defenders (maybe a late-round steal of a solid tight end).

I say a LB...Of course if a good CB is available, YOU NEVER PASS UP ON HIM!!!

You are wrong my friend. The bail comes after the draft, and this is coming from a Bengals' fan.

Just a joke man, and u should take it as that!

Bengals needs to use better judgement that they have in the past..I KNOW THAT, wit the exception of Pollack!

BFritz

Now I think they should draft a solid corner in the first round, then a defensive tackle/end, then a backer in the fourth (traded third round pick), and then another D tackle or D end, then if there's any good offensive linemen left, then if there's any solid tight ends.

Like I said, if there is ever a SOLID CB, then you never pass him up

Like previously mentioned, you always go for the good corner. Man, I still have high hopes for Jonathon Joseph, but...

Anyways, if it were up to me, I would take a DT in the 2nd, if not the first round. Sam Adams is solid, but three plays at one time is the most productive he'll be. That and age is catching up to him.
Don't know much about the Peko guy from Mich St., other than he looked very promising this year, and should develop into an all around good DT.

What's the deal on Justin Smith? Last I heard it was between him and Steinbach, and they let Eric go because of the salary cap. I also heard from another source, that they didn't keep either.
I plan on buying a Bengals Steinbach jersey fairly soon. I have a feeling Finish Line will pull out the 37.50 deal on them before too long.

Oh yea, I imagine with your 4th pick, you pick up OLB or MLB, 5th & 6th you try to get another corner and possibly a tight-end and 7th.. well, i'm defintely not saying you can't get talent from the 7th round (TJ Houshmanzadeh for example) but it's hard telling what you could scrape up.
Perhaps another defensive utility player?

yeah you can dig up some fairly solid picks in the later rounds...that sixth round quarterback named Brady that New England took a few years ago turned out pretty good for them, lol....Marques Colston, Houshmandzadeh, etc...

Unfortunately...

Nah, I much as I want to dislike him, I'm a pretty big Tom Brady fan.

I want to hate Bellicek so bad too, but I can't.
He's the Bobby Knight of the NFL.

I disagree, if anybody was the Bobby Knight of the NFL, it was Bill Parcells, but he's gone now.

I agree BFritz, but that would be Parcells in his early days. He turned soft his past couple of years! I would have liked to have seen him with T.O. in say...The early 90's!

Gorn
02-02-2007, 08:51 PM
Ok, so Parcells was more of a Bobby Knight than Bellicek was, but that doesn't negate the fact that Bill has a little Bobby Knight in him, IMO..

I know you're kidding, but panic so quick? I've been the most non-panic fan around........ When they get in trouble, I'm the one who says "wait and see what really happened," while everyone else is "skip arrest, skip trial, straight to execution," and, a few times (if not most), I've been right. They lose a game or two, I don't panic, I've said "they're still good." I think our troubles with the law are done, but who knows.

The Bengals are one of the most talented team's in the NFL, what they need is some dicipline, I think that Defensive Back is needed, with the whole Jonathan Joseph thing.

BFritz

That and one who can stop the run, along with backers who can do the same. All that, of course, is after the take a corner in the first round, because talented corners aren't easy to come by, but there will be plenty of good run stoppers and pass rushers available into the middle rounds.

In the first round, Yahoo! has the Bengals taking Darrelle Revis, cornerback, Pittsburgh

BFritz
02-12-2007, 08:47 PM
Just looking at other sites that have the Bengals draft projections:
Amobi Akoye- DT, Louisville, he's only 19, and could develope into a great and explosive player, but I think that you take a corner (skill position) in the first round and just bank on Akoye or another solid tackle being available for your next picks. Might be a solid nose if they go to a 3-4, but, even if they do, I still think they'd need better backers first.

Another Darelle Revis- probly my choice.
Another Akoye- :ChairHit:
Adam Carriker- DT- "experts" are stupid- see above reasoning
Jarvin Moss- DE- not as stupid a choice, (better pass rushing opportunities, could help stop run), but I'm sticking by my philosophy of taking a skill player first
Another Carriker- :ChairHit:
Another Revis- :Thumbs: Still a great choice, in my opinion, especially with James probly gone and O'Neal struggling.
Paul Polsnuzy- LB- Penn State- real tough kid, might be a good choice since we're switching to the 3-4
Another Polsnuzy- but has them taking Marcus McCauley-CB, in the 2nd, but I think it should be CB then LB, if anything
Reggie Nelson- DB- Florida

Thoughts??

I really want Cincinatti to take him..
However, didn't he tear his ACL? There might be some liability there.

This might sound stupid, but I wouldn't mind seeing them get Quin Pitcock either.

He partially tore his PCL and MCL, but I don't think it was bad and he should be full go in a few weeks.

Pitcock might be a good choice too, but I'm sticking with my guns and saying that they shouldn't draft a linebacker til the second round or later. Sure we need linebackers and linemen to stop the run, but those are usually around even after the first round..... Take a corner first round, and then in the second round and later rounds, get linebackers who like to kill people and linemen who take up space and rush the passer. There's a reason DBs are called a skill position........

The website has them taking a corner or Reggie Nelson at safety from Florida (MVP for the National Champions). Who knows, I'm thinking I might take Nelson first, then a corner second, followed by a few defensive linemen, or maybe a backer and then defensive linemen. It all depends on who's available I guess.

Bengals needs to use better judgement that they have in the past..I KNOW THAT, wit the exception of Pollack!

Can Pollack still play? Last time I seen him he had a massive neckbrace on and could barely move. If the one linebacker from Penn St. is available they should take him or the one that on the Butkus Award from Ohio State.

They definitely need a good pass rusher, but hopefully they can also get someone who can stop the run.
