CB – Dre Kirkpatrick forgettable

I hate to put Dre on the list but to say they were coming after him would be an understatement. He was credited with four missed tackles and had the 15 yard facemask penalty. According to Pro Football Focus Kirkpatrick received a -4.5 grade, the lowest of all Bengal defenders.

“Swag” has gotten his chance and if Newman can’t go this week he could be locked up with impressive rookie WR Cordarrelle Patterson or the veteran Greg Jennings.  So it’s time for Dre to live up to that Alabama pedigree and first round selection, or another highly-drafted cornerback may have to replace him.
