The Good, Bad, and the Ugly: Dre Kirkpatrick

2 of 3


The Bad

There were much better players on the board in DE Melvin Ingram, OG David DeCastro, and DE Chandler Jones. Because the Bengals felt CB was such a need, they weren’t able to go with the best-available- player approach. Ingram in particular was hard to pass up. He was the drat’s highest rated DE/OLB prospect, and could even kick inside to play the DT spot on passing downs. Mike Zimmer would have had a field day terrorizing opposing QBs with Ingram, Carlos Dunlap, and Geno Atkins.
