ShulaSteakhouse Posted January 23, 2008 Report Share Posted January 23, 2008 One team source confirmed that the Bengals will address their needs primarily through the draft.Bengals like what they see at Senior Bowl (of course they do)Here are some prospects that have caught the eyes of team evaluators: Pittsburgh OL Michael McGlynn, Michigan CB Jamar Adams and Notre Dame DT Trevor Laws.When it comes to the troubled linebacker position, the Bengals may look to address that matter in free agency first. The team is not expected to make a big splash in free agency, but there is one player who could be on their radar screen and that is Jets LB Jonathan Vilma.Vilma missed nine games this season with a knee injury and isn't expected to return to the Jets next season. Word is that Lewis had high regard for Vilma when he was drafted in 2004.It has been said that there are no real impact linebackers in this year's draft that could help the team right away, so this move would make perfect sense.Also, look for a bigger, stronger and faster Chris Henry next season. I'm told that the receiver will work diligently over the course of the off-season to accomplish those goals.Looks like the o-line will be addressed in the mid-rounds (good luck with that as they've had NONE in the past) and aren't very concerned with guards or centers.I'm guessing the #1 pick will indeed be a DT or DE.Looks like a hodge podge LB situation again as they don't seem to have any sort of proactive plan there to make a splash or add an impact playerVilma? Eh.Pretty much business as usual. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
