Geno Atkins is coming off the greatest season ever by a Bengals defensive tackle, and he knows that if he’s to keep improving and solidifying his status as one of the NFL’s top defenders,

"It’s good to be able to keep the chemistry. I think we’re going to be good up front like we were last year. You want everybody back because we’re all so familiar with each other. You know everybody’s tendencies, what everybody likes to do. Mike knows I push the pocket, so he can take an inside rush and he’ll know I’ll cover him. Stuff like that because we are really familiar with each other. This year the Super Bowl in New Jersey. I want the ring."

The Bengals have shown interest in West Virginia wide receiver Tavon Austin recently, but even though they had him in for a visit, Geoff Hobson doesn’t see him making it to pick #21:

"Also Wednesday, West Virginia wide receiver Tavon Austin tweeted as he left St. Louis that he’s visiting Cincinnati next on his draft tour. But this figures to be his last flight into Cincinnati before he arrives with the Rams. The 5-8, 173-pound dynamo doesn’t figure to get past St. Louis at No. 16."
