Ox Posted March 21, 2009 Report Share Posted March 21, 2009 Bengals fans require their draft ‘fix’By Chick Ludwig | Friday, March 20, 2009, 09:24 AMMAYBE BILL COWHER’S RIGHT;WATCH OUT FOR BENGALS===Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis has nothing but love for Cowboys safety Roy Williams. Lewis once said that Williams was so good, the team that drafts him “could play with 10 guys” on defense.===BENGALS DRAFT BUZZ• Left offensive tackle is the No. 1 priority because of veteran Levi Jones’ knee problems. Either Jason Smith or Eugene Monroe will be ticketed for the sixth overall pick. Both have the ability to play at a high level right away …• The club is crying for an impact pass rusher to attack off the edge. Robert Ayers would be an ideal fit in the second round …• If a willing suitor emerges, a trade down would allow the team to get a quality LT (Michael Oher or Andre Smith) and use the extra pick for C Jonathan Luigs in the third round …• The signing of TB Cedric Benson and WR Laveranues Coles in free agency erases the need for high picks at both positions …• A quality MLB is a must because Dhani Jones, 31, is slowing down …• The only possible way the Bengals draft TB Chris “Beanie” Wells is if he’s available in the second round. Remember: If you’re injured in college, then you’ll be injured in the NFL …TOP SEVEN POSITION NEEDSLeft offensive tackleDefensive endCenterMiddle linebackerTailbackFree safetyDefensive tackleBENGALS IMPORTANT DATESMARCH 30 — Offseason workouts begin at Paul Brown Stadium.APRIL 25-26 — NFL Draft.MAY 19-21, 26 and 28 — On-field coaching sessions (OTAs).JUNE 2-4, 9, 11 and 15 — On-field coaching sessions (OTAs).JUNE 18-20 — Mandatory minicamp.http://www.daytondailynews.com/o/content/s..._their_dra.html Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
