Last year's bengals draft looks to be superb. Our FO went on record saying the DTs went earlier tahn expected, and they had to move their taking of a DT up a round. This was after they heavily scouted 3rd round WRs.http://www.bengals.com/news/article-1/C ... b3db56eadd
The Bengals took
1) Jermaine Gresham, TE of the futue
2) Carlos Dunlap, DE w 9.5 sacks
3) Jordan Shipley, 600 yards rookie year
4) Geno Atkins, rush DT with 3 sacks
I'm pretty sure (from the quotes post draft) the FO wanted WR in the 3rd, and DT in the 4th. Hindsight is 20/20 and all that, and we wouldn't have been able to have the 2nd round pick, but imagine how well we would be set up had we had this draft...the one closer to what I think the FO wanted. (Also shows why need based drafting will bite you some, since they had to move up a full round their DT purchase).
With this draft, we'd have needs only at LB, OL, RB basically. Or if we still took spoon in the 1st, needs at TE, OL, RB.
