The depth of this draft in general, as well as the tight end class is going to push C.J. Conrad late on the second day of the NFL Draft, more likely day three. If all other gaping holes are addressed to an extent on day one and in the first part of day two, if C.J. Conrad is still on the board, the Cincinnati Bengals would be foolish to turn the other cheek on a solid pass-catching tight end. With what looks to be a pass-heavy offensive system developing in Cincinnati, this could be a match made in heaven if utilized correctly.
