Round 2 Pick: Jackson Carman, OT, Clemson

Recommended Posts

Hard to have asked for round one to go better. Tons of stud OL left. Great night for us, can’t wait for tomorrow!

I think this proved out that the draft strategy we have been talking about for the last month or so was the right one.  This BTW also means a damn good olinemen will be there in the third if we want to double dip

Yup.

There will be a quality lineman available. It’s mathematically locked. Just ensure you take one, Bengals.

Obviously Teven Jenkins would be my #1 choice but barring that it's Landon Dickerson at this point.

Chase + Jenkins would be possibly their best value haul in the first two rounds since I started following religiously in the early ‘00s (at least given how I feel about those players on draft day).

Chase + Cosmi wouldn’t be far behind.

Chase + Eichenberg was my most optimistic projection when round one started.

If they just take the damned lineman, we’re going to be set.

Sustained bliss over how that unfolded after chase.

Landon Dickerson is the high risk/high reward player starring at them.

I would pass.   Too much personnel injury history and too much recent history with Bama players missing the first year.

The Sweet spot is finding a long term RT candidate that can help them upgrade RG.  Improve depth across that line this year.

He played some right guard in college. I think he would project decently either way. I thought he'd be long gone by now and perhaps before Darrisaw.

Yes. For sure. He’s played G and T at okie state. He’s a perfect candidate for G this year and slide out to T when Reiff moves on.

Matt Miller just posted his second round mock and got us Jenkins.

Thanks - yeah he's so big I wondered, but if he can play RG, draft him.  I also wonder what the hesitation to draft him in the 1st was about - other than some short-fuse stuff, not sure what the knock on him might be.  He looks like a f'ing monster, like Sewell.

Supposedly some concerns on his hip maybe from an injury in November. Course, he looked healthy as hell at his pro day. He’s a sprint to the podium if he’s there for me.

Eichenberg also popular, I’ve seen a couple mocks this morning with him at 38.

Let me pose this, what will stop the Bengals' from drafting Azeez Ojulari if he's still there? (kind of doubting it but who knows) Especially if Jenkins and/or another top OL or two are gone?

I almost think you take that opp and draft your RG in the 3rd if the top 2-3 OL candidates are gone.

I think Ojulari goes to Atlanta so that would prevent him from falling to us.

yeah no way he likely makes it to 38, but if he somehow did...not sure how you pass him up given the need here still (I know they want another Edge guy) .  I'd also be surprised if Jenkins did.  Cosmi or Radunz would be fine there.

He’s supposedly high on Bengals list.  Dude on radio said strong possibility.

Almost too much to ask.  He’d replace Lawson with little drop off.  In fact he looks like he’d be one of the best players on our defense immediately.

Jenkins, Cosmi, or Humphrey for me.   In that order of preference. 

Eichenberg or Mayfield wouldnt be optimal, but OK. 

Dont like Radunz, Little, or Dickerson (injury risk only) at 38.

r3 pick needs to be OL as well.  Praying for Meinerz to fall to us there.
