Bengals 2013 Draft Thread
 
Bengals select TE Tyler Eifert Notre Dame with #21 pick.

I like the pick give the offense another weapon and gets Gresham out of here next year when he is a FA. After that playoff game Gresham had against Houston I have wanted him out of here.

hobbes2053 04-25-2013 11:28 PM

Not my first choice (I wanted Reid), but will definitely make us a scarier offense for opposing temas to handle. Eifert will either push Gresham out or force him to elevate his game, either of which is to our benefit. Well done not reaching either. I dig it.

We can go a few different directions with our next pick:


Cryprien S
Lacy RB
Hunter WR
Watson OT

FootballGod 04-26-2013 09:21 AM

Eifert will be more than fine in this offense. Two TE sets with Green and Sanu on the outside with Lacy or Bernard out of the backfield looks lethal!

hobbes2053 04-26-2013 11:55 AM

Pick 37 had better be RB or nothing.

Pat Sims 90 04-26-2013 01:59 PM

For number #37 I am going to guess it will be one of these

Manti Te'o
Jonathan Cyprien
Cornellius Carradine
Eddie Lacy
Arthur Brown
Sam Montgomery
Giovani Bernard

hobbes2053 04-26-2013 03:23 PM

If we draft Manti Te'o, I quit.

hobbes2053 04-26-2013 07:01 PM

I love it.

Pat Sims 90 04-26-2013 07:02 PM

Bengals finally landed their speed back.

SC Igniter 04-26-2013 07:06 PM

A bit early for Bernard, Bengals loved him and this fills a need. About Swearingen on next pick?

hobbes2053 04-26-2013 07:27 PM

Swearinger or Brown/Greene/Moore would be nice. Definitely need to go defense next.

Pat Sims 90 04-26-2013 08:05 PM

Margus Hunt is a typical Bengals pick freak athlete of a DE. I am fine with it lot of upside with him.

hobbes2053 04-26-2013 08:05 PM

Not what I expected, but in no way am I mad. Love this draft so far.

Pat Sims 90 04-26-2013 09:55 PM

The Bengals got there SS. Not a great athlete like Rambo but was solid and more reliable then Rambo.

Cant help but feel we could have waited another round...though there has been a massive run on secondary in this draft. So, maybe not.

He was the Best SS left on the board. Might have been a slight reach, but with their recent draft success it is hard not to trust them.

Its a Georgia Player, so no real complaints. And you are right he was the only SS left. I mean he has to be better than Mays? right?

Elam is my top ranked Safety. He is exactly what the Bengals need and can start from day one. He he physical and can play in the box as well as play in coverage. He is the best of both worlds.

2A. Giovani Bernard, RB, North Carolina

Ill be honest. He wont be here. Some people have him rated as the best RB in the draft, others just have him in the top 3. All in all I feel like this is one of the weaker RB drafts and because of that Bernard could be the first RB taken in the 2nd round. Last years RB just felt stronger. Richardson, Martin, Wilson, James, and Miller just seemed a better crop than Bernard, Randle, Taylor, Lacy and Gillisle. However, if that is the case, I can't see the Bengals not taking advantage of the fact the best RB in the draft is sitting there for them.

2b. Sean Porter, OLB, Texas A&M

Porter is fluid and fast in coverage situations. He can chase down ball handlers going across the edge and has the ability to get to the QB. He isn't perfect by any means and he isnt Von Miller but I think he might be able to play very well as a 4-3 OLB in the NFL.

3. Margus Hunt, DE, SMU

Hunt is a huge specimen that is very raw. However he is a Marvin Lewis style DE like Micheal Johnson. Depending on how things shore up in FA, the Bengals might not have a need fro another DE and this could easily go another route like CB, or even WR. But, the Bengals might still look to add another DE to the mix. Plus the dude is like 6 foot 7.

4. Darius Slay, CB, Mississippi State

Slay wasn't the best CB in Mississippi but he still played pretty good. The Bengals CB's arent getting any younger and they aren't getting any cheaper.

5. John Wetzel, OT, Boston College

While OT is not a need, you really don't search for a starter in the 5th round. Wetzel will more than likely serve as a backup at either LT or RT. He is prolly better than Roland, though that isnt saying much.

6. Knile Davis, RB, Arkansas

7. Alec Lemon, WR, Syracuse

That was my First Bengals mock way back early on....I got Hunt, Porter and Bernard right. At that time Slay was not rated very high...he went much higher.

Pat Sims 90 04-27-2013 01:11 PM

Sean Porter could be groomed to be replacement for Jame Harrison. I think he could fill a DE/LB hybrid type.

I like him alot.

villagewarrior 04-29-2013 07:56 AM

I love the Bengals draft. Their top four picks are home runs in my opinion. Eifert and Gresham will be sick stretching the seams opposite each other. Bernard is the best back in the draft. Hunt is going to the right scheme, he would've been terrible in a 34 defense, but playing on a 4 man front will be good for him and the Bengals. Hawkinson and Fragel will give some interesting options at tackle, and I'm a huge Burkhead fan.

If they use Eifert in the majority of their passig plays, then it was an excellent pick. They need to employ 2TEs until Gresham shows them that he can't be counted on.

He weighs about 220?

237 according to his weight-in at rookie camp, which is up from 230 at the combine.

rickscott 05-14-2013 03:15 PM

Their LBing corp should be quicker with Lemur, Porter and maybe the undrafted kid joining the roster. I would still like to see Moch make it. I feel for that kid with his problems...actually, Joiner too. Alot of good stories
