”"37. Cincinnati Bengals – Jordan Poyer CB Oregon State

The Bengals had a lot of 1st round picks playing at CB last season. However Terence Newman, Pacman Jones and Nate Clements are all free agents. Newman and Clements are also getting up there in age. At the very least one of these guys will not be back. We also don’t know what we have in Dre Kirkpatrick since he missed basically the whole year with injuries. Poyer was fantastic for the Beavers last year. Poyer was on an island a lot in OSU’s blitz heavy scheme. He also possesses really good ball skills. In his final two seasons at Oregon State, he racked up 11 INT’s, 19 passes defensed as well as 108 tackles.

”"53. Cincinnati Bengals – Phillip Thomas FS Fresno State

Reggie Nelson is a good safety, however the other safety spot was occupied by Taylor Mays, Jeromy Miles and they were back enough that the Bengals had to bring in Chris Crocker from his couch. They have drafted safety the past 2 drafts, but both in the 5th round. Nelson is better in the box and when he can blitz. However Thomas is really a ball hawking safety. He is a good athlete with speed and agility to play well in coverage. He has really good ball skills and really good hands. He is an above average tackler and wraps up well.

”"84. Cincinnati Bengals – Jonathan Franklin RB UCLA

While not an elite RB, BenJarvus Green-Ellis played well enough last year to earn himself another year as the running back. However what the Bengals really lacked last year was a change of pace back that was a home run threat. Bernard Scott didn’t play at all last year due to injuries, and while being good on special teams, Cedric Peerman and Dan Herron are not viable #2 running backs. Jonathan Franklin brings elite speed, elusiveness and good hands out of the backfield. He isn’t great in blitz pickup, but brings the ability to take it to the house any time he touches the ball.

    That mock draft 6 rounds is the worst yet. All the great picks and you probably got 1 potential starter from 6 picks……. terrible

    • Blake Meek

      Ogletree and Thomas are starters. Also, just because Poyer, Franklin and Taylor aren’t labeled “starters” doesn’t mean they won’t have a huge impact on this team. I wouldn’t be surprised if Poyer beat out Kirkpatrick as a rookie. Gotta look towards the future too.

  • Peter

    Hopefully the draft looks a little more like this:

    1. Vaccaro S
    2a. Bernard RB
    2b. Best Value LB
    3. Hunt DE
    4. Lattimore RB
    5. Mellette WR
    6a. Mathieu CB
    6b. Armstrong S

    • Blake Meek

      I see Vaccaro as slightly overrated. Watch him against OSU. Randle abuses him in the run game. Hunt is falling down boards quickly after his poor performance at the senior bowl.

    • Blake Meek

      I like that, but Vaccaro isn’t lasting till we pick, and I’d say Hunt is a 2nd rounder.

  • http://www.facebook.com/daniel.c.wood.5 Daniel C. Wood

    the draft SHOULD look like this:

    1. best WR available. Keenan, Corradelle, Deandre…. one of them

    2a. Bernard…… If he is there, We need him!

    2b. safety….. Reid, Rambo, Amerson. someone like that

    3.Chase thomas or better OLB

    4.Mathieu cb……. he wont last to the 5th round

    5.Marcus Davis WR or Cobi Hamilton WR

    6a.Sio Moore OLB

    6b.Nigel Malone CB

    We should get an experienced safety in free agency and maby another linebacker also.

    • Blake Meek

      You ready to give up on Jones and Sanu already I see.

      • http://www.facebook.com/daniel.c.wood.5 Daniel C. Wood

        Do we want good recievers or great ones?

        • Adish Pawar

          Look, the best thing we do in WR situation is to get Mike Wallace in FA. Then we use our 1st pick on Kenny Vaccaro, Alec Ogletree is going to fall because of his DUI, maybe we can snag him in the 2nd round(Best look). Our next 2nd round should go to the best possible RB their, Giovani Bernard from NC maybe. These are our major concerns. We have the largest cap in the league, we need to use some of that money in order to have the Lombo trophy.

    • Blake Meek

      Sio Moore isn’t getting out of the 3rd round. Probably a 2nd rounder. WR is not a big enough need to take in the 1st round. We need a LB and a S WAY more than a WR. Have to take one of the 2 in the 1st.

  • AL33

    I’d spend that high 2nd on a safety before a corner, Reid might be there, or Elam. Am I the only one who wants Barret Jones? Bull rushes up the middle are still killing Cook, and Jones could start C plus backup every position. I’d be tempted to go S, C, RB with the first 3 picks, though if Ogletree is there you can’t argue against that.
