I had a feeling after watching the Bengals' draft special.
Too much talent to pass up again. Lot's of people had this guy pegged for the 1st.
I think the centers available just weren't worth the place we were picking, despite the need.

Prior to last season he was a consensus first rounder. He has all the measurables you could want.

Welcome to Cincy!!!

They need a pass rusher to make Big Ben uand Flacco uncomfortable.

Sounds pretty good to me. Was projected to the second round. And I still bet Caldwell or Shipley will fall to us. This has been a great draft.

I think Caldwell can be there in the late 3rd, or we should try to trade

Another guy like Rey they couldn't pass up. I wonder if Caldwell will still be there at the end of this round when they pick again.

I'm not as thrilled as I'm sure some are, but there's no denying the value of the pick and the need to get some pass rush for our defense.
Good job again...

Good value. I'm not crazy about this guy, but they definitely need pressure. We gotta get a rb and Center soon. I love this draft as well!

How could the guy be projected as a first rounder before the season started? He never started more than one game in a season until his Senior year. The highest I had heard was a Second rounder based solely on his physical skills. Hopefully he can come in and be that third down edge rusher the Bengals so desperately need.

Anyone else surprised ESPN just spent over 5 minutes talking about the Bengals? I swear this draft is happening in Bizarro world.

This is for sure the best DE on the board.

Johnson had 9 sacks last year,he is susposed to be not so good against the run, WHO CARES,we will coach him up !

If this guy only rushes the passer every 3rd down he could put monster sack totals.

Some guys had him in the 1st round.

Nice pick!

I am HAPPY with this one.

I did think that they would have taken Antoine Caldwell whith the pick ,he is the last good C, but he may be there at the botton of the rnd.
