5 Reasons The Cincinnati Bengals’ Draft Rocked
The Bengals are set. Eleven new draft selections are ready to make memories in Orange and Black. It’s time for the rookies to bring the heat.
At the end of the day, the only thing that matters is how it all turned out. There were moments that made for head scratching and low curses. But, the Bengals accomplished what they set out to do. Marvin Lewis and Co. had a productive effort that will be remembered for many reasons. Yet, the results are yet to be seen. Fans are reeling over forsaken mock drafts and picks that got away. But, the Bengals stayed true to form and had a solid three days that will come together in June.
In the days and weeks to come, the 11 new Bengals will become familiar to fans. Conversely, the players will become accustomed to the Cincinnati way of supporting its team. There is a love-hate affair with the franchise that has been honed over the years. Of the young men that make the cut, they’ll start to embrace that newfound relationship and understand what has to be done.
The Bengals’ franchise will be celebrating 50 years of football. With the new draft class, things will be both interesting and confusing. Change always brings uncertainty and hesitation. The 2017 campaign will either be a time to rejoice or continue to languish in mediocrity. But, with the draft choices made, the Bengals organization looks to make an impact and shake things up. Players will make the difference.
