  1. 2021 Overall Draft Grade

    Yeah, I think they are looking at Sample as Geno replacement with scheme versatility.
  2. Gotta be Ken Anderson and Boomer Esiason
  3. Round 6 Pick 1/2: Trey Hill, C, Georgia

    And Price though I do believe Billy Price will be on the roster this year, Trey Hill is our center of the future

    another great post draft convo.
  5. Round 2 Pick: Jackson Carman, OT, Clemson

    Another good interview about Carman
  6. 2021 Overall Draft Grade

    Yep. Ossai had the one sack at the end of the game and one additional pressure. Jenkins had 3 or 4 pancakes and another 10 or so where he just stones Ossai. And then the one we're he totally abuses him.

    First, all grades the week after the draft are nonsense, including mine. We, none of us, know anything real about these players, we will not anything about them on the field until the season begins and we can see them in person, even at that most players (even really good ones) need a bit of seasoning for a year or two before you can see what they will become. Counting on rookies to fill critical spots on the starting lineup is generally a bad plan but the Bengals, like most teams, do not have the luxury of filling all their roster holes through free agency so we are left with an unpleasant reality. So all that said, IF TJ thinks Shelvin is an F then it is as valid a grade as Hoosier grading it an A. I will say that in watching more from the coaches, they are seeming to be building schemes with both Reader and Shelvin on the line at the same time.....that will be interesting with Reader essentially playing 3 technique...will be fun to watch if nothing else. The Bengals deviated significantly from my philosophy which is that since we have so many roster holes it is unlikely that they are going to win anything significant this year so the best course of action is to spend all your resources building an amazing offense so that when you are in position to win big that side of the ball is more seasoned (i.e. Fuck the Defense). The Bengals, probably because the coaches are on the hot seat, have taken the approach to try and win now. By doing so they have not maximized the potential of the offense. Only time will tell if they are right....they seem to think that they have a much better, more competitive, well rounded roster than I do.
  8. Round 2 Pick: Jackson Carman, OT, Clemson

    Yeah but, they had Carman as a true Sophomore, they are giving him no credit for development into his Junior season also Clemson lined Carman up at LT which did nothing for him, he is a RG or RT I. The NFL.

    Bengals in the last several years have been above average at drafting.
  10. 2021 Overall Draft Grade

    You should watch it, it is enlightening and concerning. Now that being said, there is also quite alot of very good Ossai tape and he is very highly regarded in evaluation circles. I am not saying it was a bad pick or that he will be a bad player for us, I just have concerns and would have very much preferred them to go oline at that draft position.
  11. 2021 Overall Draft Grade

    Agreed. Carman is our RT for the future IMHO. Reiff is a VERY solid player and is durable, I think Williams development has been retarded by our oline coaching. This is the year Williams breaks out IMHO. Very positive about the oline starting 2021, wasn't the case this time last year.
  12. 2021 Overall Draft Grade

    It was a sentence, hardly an evaluation....what exactly do you disagree with? He is 5'9" 170 lbs so he is definitely small, his 10 and 20 yard splits are in the 90th percentile so he is quick and fast in short bursts. I will admit however I have spent 0 time breaking down his tape. I figured that the domestic violence issue would have taken him off our board. In the last two drafts we have been aggressive about eliminate potential character issues.

    Fixed thanks...had a brain fart.
