Changing Things With Free Agents / Draft

Recommended Posts

Rams refuse to extend center John Sullivan, he’ll be a free agent.  Obvious fit for a dire need, and he knows our head coach.

I'm taking a look now at players that have fallen to and past #11 recently.

2018- S Derwin James (Chargers) was thought to be a top 10 pick without question and fell to #17.
2017- CB Marshon Lattimore (Saints) was thought to be a top 5 pick and fell to #11.
2016- OT Laremy Tunsil (Dolphins) was thought to be the best OT and fell to #13 due to pics of him doing bong hits.
2015- CB Marcus Peters (Chiefs) was thought to be a top 10 pick and fell to #18.
2014- WR Odell Beckham (Giants) was thought to be a top 10 pick and fell to #12.

That's just the last five years and while they didn't drop far, they all dropped to #11 or a little further.
There are more than just those as well.  With the exception of Tunsil, they are all also Pro Bowl level players.

Bengals' have so many talent needs, trading-down could easily happen also.   Not sure I'd pass on White or one of the top 2 OT's though.

That’s a good signing if the Bengals do it

If "Andy's your man," then why even consider a QB with the 11th pick? One of only 5 teams he met with, so that's more than "due diligence" I think.   I am pretty sure Taylor wants to hand-pick his own QB, sooner than later.  If they don't, gotta imagine they'll get a trade offer from someone like the Redskins or Miami,  as it seems one of the top 4 QB's should be there at #11.

Marvin never liked to have competition for his QB starter. 

I still think they sabotaged McAaron’s rookie year to avoid QB competition talk.

It will be interesting to see how that goes forward.   The QB offseason talk for the Bengals hasn’t gone away.

Is it baseless speculation?  First Tannehill. Now Rosen.  Now the Dookie QB.

If they just have to have a new QB, I couldn't fault their thought process on it.
The talk of Dalton would be accurate in that he would remain the starter while the new guy sits and then Dalton would be shown the door in 2020.
Needs with the o-line and linebackers could still be addressed in free agency if the organization further changes their approach to things.

Who knows how this is going to shake out, but there seemingly is a bunch of FA talent out there to be had.
F*ck the comp picks and fix the damn team.
The only FA we have that could get paid better than average is Dennard and even that will have it's limits.

Yeah and you know MB isn't going to pay two QB's for very long.  But that said, they can afford it since Dalton was front-loaded.  

Bengals' made tender offers to Hopkins, Redmond, Brandon Bell and McRae.  Hopkins' offer is a 2nd round tender, so they obviously would like him back.  He's done "ok" but talk about setting some low standards, yet I get it, they gotta bunch of bodies and no talent on the o-line outside of Price (who's been underwhelming ultimately) and Glenn (who seems to be breaking-down late in his career).

I guess I'm more interested in those who "didn't" get tendered, if anyone, I just haven't kept up with it, as I don't care that much about the amount of "bleh" on this roster currently.

We need QB depth, Driskell proved he isn't worthy. I know you can point fingers at the O-line and Lazor but Driskell won't cut the mustard f Dalton goes down again. I don't think the 11th pick should be used on QB depth though

I think they need a new QB as well but this draft is a terrible QB class. They might be better off riding with what they got and look at next years class that should be loaded.

Just based on the public opinion.

White would be an A+++ pick.   Had film to be considered a top prospect and the combine confined that skill.

Landing him outside the top 10 would be a steal.

Dillard seems to solidifying himself as the top tackle.  I’d consider that an A pick.  Has to the skill to lock down left side in pass pro.

Even if (yeah right) we signed a fa like Mosely, they still need Devin White. 

They could grab Grier in r3 or r4.

Agree on most of it but Dennard isn't a first rate slot player. He'll get a job but the dollars will depend on whether he plays teams.

Devin White could turn into the center of our defense for ten years.  He could fall to us, I'm hoping he does.

Dennard, per what I'm reading, is wanting to get paid like an outside corner because he thinks he can play there.   He's been mainly in the slot for us, his agent feels that's on us and is looking to get him paid.  Probably gone.

Will see what happens but I don't see much changing in free agency.  

However I did see that they did resign CJ Uzomah which I like that move.

Hobson writes that OL Turner gets his man.

Fuck you Turner, and Hart and Taylor for hiring this loser of a OL coach.

Is this still the Marvin era sure feels like it, Bengals always seem to get worse during free agency and it's because of signings like this!

I really wish Paul Alexander was like coach today, lol, so people can put it all on his shoulders.  

Bengals love them some Hart.  Pollack liked him.  Tobin does and now new line coach. 

Whatever.  I don’t see it.  I think he sucks.

Hart's never been good.  Kroft was signed by the Bills, so they have another need now.  

Same old Bengals so far, spending a bunch of money on the wrong players, their own.

7 million bucks a year?  Bobby Hart must have bought the Mike Brown voodoo doll that Bodine had.  You know, the one that Ghiaciuk had before both of them.  It’s baffling.

Given the way salary cap is growing and being throw around, 7 mil will be swing tackle fringe starter money by the time that deal ends or maybe by the time draft rolls around. 

You always have to see structure too.
