Baldwin i felt was a Bengals type pick and and i think he fits great in a WC offense. I traded down again because teams were trying to trade up and get what QBs were left on the board and there was really not a run on WRs in the 2nd so i knew i coluld get Baldwin at that pick.
Boling i took just because i am a big fan of his. Cannon could have been the pick but if the Bengals are going to keep Andre Smith they wont need another OT/OG type that cant stay underweight and healty. If they did not have Andre Smith i prolly would have taken Cannon.
In this Fourm Mock RBs have been sliding a lot i think there are some good RBs still left in 5th round. I was either going to get Ryan Williams or LeShoure with this pick but Ryan Williams came off the board so it was a easy pick to make.
In the 4th i got
DT Terrell McClain South Florida
S Ahmad Black Florid
if u would like to chime in on those picks.
Im on the Boat that the Bengals are not interested in Gabbert at all and all the Newton talk is simply a smoke screen. I am very unimpressed with the QB's this year and wasnt all that impressed last year as well. I only liked 1 QB last year...Sam Bradford. This year I can't say I like any.
The Bengals will more than likely stick with Smith. I dont think he will pan out. He lacks the work ethic and can't stay healthy. Is a shame really.
Its really odd that the Running Backs are slipping like that...great value to be had late.
As for Terrell Mclain, he would very well be a typical Bengals mid round type pick. However the Bengals have like 6 DT's on roster and he would likely either go to practice squad or replace someone like McDonald. I think if the Bengals go with a DT at all this season it will be a First Rounder that would immediately start. So basically Mclain would be fighting for a backup spot at best (unless he goes out there are wows some people).
Grade on Mclain - C+
Ahmad Black is undersized. Other than that he is perfect. He is the Kinda safety I think Zim looks for. He can lay a hit and plays real physical. Plus late 4th is a nice place to grab him. He plays good for a safety thats only 5' 9"
Grade on Black - A-
