The mock draft from Mel Kiper has the Bengals picking Monte Ball with the 21st Pick in the 1st round. I love the pick because i think he would improve this team greatly. Also would love to see a safety from the SEC picked by the Bengals. Im tired of all these ACC and PAC10 DB's for the bengals. Love you...clemens! The DB's from the SEC seem to show up a lot more then DB's from other conferences.
1st Round RB draft picks make me cringe unless your a. Peterson.
Hail Hail to MeatChicken the Cesspool of the World!
Our quarterback does front flips, suck it.
Funny, I'd think you'd want a good defensive back rather than one from a specific conference. There are 6 safeties in the pro bowl this year, two of which are from the SEC. Last year there were 9 selected due to injury, and the only SEC safety was Ryan Clark, who was selected as an alternate. Clark was an undrafted free agent from LSU.
The CHASE is on...
Bengals lost games were mostly due to ineptitude on offense. I would be shocked if their first player drafted isn't on offense and more importantly OG or C. This draft it might make sense to trade down.
I agree the Bengals don't need an AJ Green type-talent unless they are looking for a good OT. Otherwise their needs are quality across the board at RB, OL, LB, and in the secondary.
Why not see if the need for safety can be alleviated by re-signing Clements to play the position? He certainly has the knowledge, strength and leadership for it. They have a glut of good but aging CBs. One of them should be a candidate to play center field on D.

The starting Center got hurt and spent most of the year healing. He came back late in the year during the 7-1 second half finish. They also started a Rookie and a Second year player at Guard. So honestly why would you take another guard that high when you are already super young at that spot.
He obviously couldn't play the position since they signed Crocker back to the team who started the rest of the year. Also he will be 34 next year. Its time to get a good Safety at the top of the draft. They have to get one. You can't keep neglecting this spot or hope to turn a Corner into a safety, it don't always work that way.
Ball at 21! I will be so pissed. Ball is nothing special, maybe in the 4th or 5th round
We are coming for you Bama!
I'd love Matt Elam from Florida or Eric Reid from LSU as safeties.
As for LB, we need upgrades at one OLB and MLB.
Manny Lawson looked lost in coverage and I don't need to get into Rey's issues.
We might be in the OL market too, depending on what happens with Andre Smoth and his recently arrest...moron!
Mike Brown, due to the new CBA, I believe, is now required to spend up to 90% of the cap room, so we either resign some crucial guys or dip into free agency.
I'd love to let Robert Geathers take a walk, but we shall see.
I want fast and physical hit you in the mouth get up an do it again in my safety. I only see that in the SEC you talkin pros... right now I talkin draft. I will Glady take Austin at wr/hb he or barner would be n my top 4 with gillislee I would even consider Marcus lattimore
I want an rb with the first or 2nd pick we have but not sold on Ball.
I'm pretty sure Marvin and Co. have learned their lesson in picking RBs in the first round with Kenny Irons and Chris Perry. I'm sure Mike Brown will never forget the wasted pick of Ki-Jana Carter, either.
No running back in Round 1.
