The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly: Part 1- The Good

5.  The 2013 Draft

Ironically enough, Carson Palmer still has one more year where his play as starting quarterback can still have a major impact on the Cincinnati Bengals.  Remember the terms of his trade to the Oakland Raiders was for a second round draft pick in 2013… unless the Raiders win in the post season, in which case it becomes a first round pick.  While an aging Peyton Manning has now been added to the already Divisional Champion Denver Broncos, the AFC West is still wide open.

Regardless if Oakland comes alive or slips back into The Black Hole to rebuild yet again, the Bengals are still set up to have all the opportunity to fill any holes that appear out of next season with at least three picks in the first 64 of the 2013 NFL Draft.
