It’s become the time of year when we Bengals fans have the most hope. Free agency is on the horizon, and the draft is just a few months away. The right moves can take the team from a team building towards something, to a contender. The question, then, is what are the right moves? One of the key positions to be addressed this offseason will be the running back position, and the Bengals have a lot of options.
The draft is an obvious way to fill the position. The Bengals have two first round picks as well as a second round pick and a RB could definitely be one of those selections. Trent Richardson is considered by many to be the next great back coming into the league. There is talk of trading up to get him, or of his possibly sliding down to pick #17. Lamar Miller and David Wilson, along with guys like Doug Martin and Isaiah Pead could be options with the 21st pick or the later picks.
