  1. 2018 season

    Marvin and his staff greeting Woodside coming out of his court appearance for DUI:
  2. I'm still surprised the Cowboys hired Alexander so quickly, but it makes sense, he has a ton of experience, and just needs really good players, or they'll get a bunch of swings-and-misses trying to develop anything but polished rookie talent, and run into roster issues.
  3. UDFA signings

    Bleacher Report gives the Bengals' UDFA signings a D Grade, lowest in the division.
  4. Draft Grades and Reviews 2018

    So they added Price and that's it basically. 2 unsettled positions on the right side still, and no quality OT depth to speak of (I assume Hopkins will have to earn his position at RG again, but he's a back-up playing in a full-time starting role, IMO). The Fisher/Ced picks are killing them. Gets assistants fired. I like the Price/Bates picks well enough, can come around on Hubbard's appeal here, but am suspect of another Texas LB who can't help against the run, was there not a decent OT or G prospect there? A RB, I guess, but why so early? Another garbage QB and a slow 6'5" WR who very likely won't make the roster, along with a mediocre NT candidate who is more of a PS project. I have to give this one a C. Then again I just don't think this draft had a lot of interesting talent, very bland class of players, so whateva.
  5. 2018 NFL draft R2 - pick 46

    Yet they drafted Illoka's replacement, he will be expected to start, or compete for it. Not sure I understand what they're doing there. Unless they want to move Illoka to SS. I'd be fine with never having to watch Williams miss a tackle again either way.
  6. Rd. 3 78&79

    Yeah, it was odd to have him do that. Although I don't think Hubbard will amount to much more than a situational guy, Jefferson could very easily beat out one of the current OLB's, unless he gets in Marvin's strange rookie doghouse.

  8. 2018 NFL draft R2 - pick 46

    I'm talking about the local media who cover the team. I've never heard anyone explain why they are so hot after a starting-caliber S when they have two of them under big, multi-year contracts that were signed before last season (2016). Both of them run through 2020. Granted Williams sucks, but then why draft a FS? Why look at them in FA?
  9. 2018 NFL draft R2 - pick 46

    NFL Network guys give the pick a B+ (for what that's worth). Apparently the Bengals' aren't high on Williams or Illoka. Do they want to move Illoka to SS? Bates is a true NFL FS. I will say that Williams is terrible, and I don't really get the Illoka love (inconsistent at-best), so Bates is going to probably start, so I don't understand why the media here hasn't reported more about that situation and the Bengals' seemingly desperate attempts to acquire a S this off-season.
  10. 2018 NFL draft R2 - pick 46

    Eh, well, Bates, kinda meh, but not a "bad" pick - but hard to make a bad one in the 2nd with all the sort of muddled-up talent at this point. Jessie Bates profile: https://www.nfl.com/prospects/jessie-bates?id=32462018-0002-5601-3099-1ea09eebf7a3

    OT (if right one is still there) > LB > SS
  12. The O-Line Roster

    Had to draft an injured lineman...(I realize he's been cleared for training camp by non-NFL medical officials)
  13. The O-Line Roster

    Price...will take it. (liked Daniels better, but get it with Price's ability to play G)
  14. The O-Line Roster

    Ridley? :)
  15. Draft Documentation

    Whoa Kolton Miller at 15 to the Raiders. Bills trade-up to #16.
  16. Draft Documentation

    I guess no one's doing the round-by-round threads anymore eh? Didn't Hair used to do those? (before he left because people made fun of Andy too much)
  17. So Frank Ragnow

    Agreed. The top 4 C's in this draft are pretty significant upgrades to Bodine most likely.
  18. Draft Documentation

    My pick would be Mayfield over the others, but can see the Browns' getting cold Manziel feet with him for no reason and going for Darnold (who I think will be average at-best). I'm tired as hell tonight but am sticking around for this first round, should be interesting. Thanks for the info/rundown Wraith, that's a lot of work.
  19. I was surprised the Cowboys weren't on every Sunday/Monday.
  20. The O-Line Roster

    I'd be good with Ragnow or Daniels, or McGlinchy if he's there, or if a can't-miss DB or LB falls (but they never do). It's hard for me to convince myself that Mike Brown would pay a C 1st round money though - but he did draft Zeitler not too long ago at G, so at #21 I could see it happening - could also just as easily see them trading-down a couple of picks for an extra 6th or 7th rounder they'll just end-up cutting during camp.
  21. From bengals.com: I can see this happening if the top rated WR (Ridley) manages to fall that far (doubtful) and McGlinchy isn't there either. But what realistic scenario has him falling that far? At #21, if the top rated player at any position is there, outside of ST's and FB, I would think they'd get heavy consideration regardless. But I don't really expect that to be the case.
  22. The O-Line Roster

    I don't think they mind paying the initial 3-5 year deal for a G or even a C in the late 1st/2nd rounds. I think a C or G is fully in-play with the #21 pick, it just depends how highly McGlinchy or another OT is on their board I think. So yeah if they don't think highly enough of Hernandez, Daniels or McGlinchy, could see someone like Payne for them at 21.
  23. The O-Line Roster

    Andre Smith was a mauler on tape too coming out of Alabama. Orlando reminds me too much of that situation to even think about wasting a top 3 pick on him.
  24. TJ's Mock - positional only

    Likely Daniels (C) or Williams (OT), or a defender if one of Evans/James/Smith falls possibly. Daniels would be nice. They can find a nice OT prospect in the 2nd or 3rd round to compete with Fisher and provide needed talent depth...but they want to run and feature Mixon/Bernard more, so RT may be more important, as you mocked, instead of the best C in the draft.
  25. The O-Line Roster

    If I had to predict what the Bengals' would do based on their history: 1st - OT 2nd - LB/DB 3rd - C/G 4th - DB/DT/TE They're stuck with Cedric and his $2.96 mil against the cap, can see him being a back-up to Glenn, and maybe he improves, but if they draft a RT in the 1st or 2nd rounds, not sure where he fits in, or who he could beat out for a position. Weird to see Brown conceding so much money, if he does. What a waste that guy's been though. So I don't know.
