“If Andre Smith does sign elsewhere, who should his replacement be?”
Eric Winston can come in straight away and be an above average replacement. We could draft someone, but this would give us a player who could play at a high level and allow us to keep all of our draft picks and spend them on other positions of need such as safety, running back and linebacker.
I do believe the Bengals will resign Andre Smith. But, if we do not, I believe drafting someone like Menelik Watson or D.J. Fluker would be the best bet.
I fully expect him to leave now, which is a letdown. I would like to see them take Kyle Long out of Oregon in the second round. I know he’s NFL ready, and he has a nice pedigree.
