For the Bengals, he game them the draft’s top runningback in Eddie Lacy:

21. Bengals – RB Eddie Lacy, Alabama
The Bengals need that foundation back for Andy Dalton to rely on. Lacy has missed a large portion of the pre-draft process, but offers great athleticism for a player his size and consistently falls forward to finish off runs.

 

And finally, for the defensing Super Bowl Champion Baltimore Ravens, he have them Rey Lewis’ heir-apparent in Kevin Minter:

 32. Ravens – LB Kevin Minter, LSU
Ozzie Newsome values the middle section of his defense, so after losing both inside linebackers Minter would offer consistency at one of those spots. He’s not overly explosive, but Minter gets the job done with thunderous hits on the interior and just enough speed to meet ball carriers at the edge.

 

While there are more than enough NFL Drafts to write about, this is by far the most intriguing one I’ve seen, and to think the AFC North could get an influx of talent like that in one draft is very exciting.

    i doubt the bengals would pick RB Lacy at #21..theres several excellent RB’s they can pick in the 2nd or 3rd rd’s….Franklin from UCLA is just one example…
