  1. Not sure what to think of the non-committal answer. "If we can protect for one more second maybe we win, but what if we don't have to protect for one more second because we got the electric guy that gets open?" Really the true question boils down to which position is truly harder to find a premiere player. There are arguments for both. Taking into account longevity then the answer is clear. Nope. The shelf life of an OT is longer than a WR but only by about a year. 1st round picks make it clear. Nope. Neither requires a 1st round to be grea

  3. I think Leatherwood could be the best tackle of the entire class. He has the classic build / frame, arm length, and attributes that you want in a tackle, whereas Sewell to me is more of a guard (albeit a dominant pro bowl one). There are 2 ways to protect a QB. 1. Have a good OL that can hold up against a blitz. 2. Have such dominant WRs / TEs that teams cannot blitz you to begin with, or else they will get burned. Taking Chase or Pitts actually helps the OL in many ways. One could even argue as much or more than taking Sewell does.

  4. If they take Sewell i believe an edge rusher will be on their mind in round 2...Annarumo wants one badly and who can blame him.. Peyton Turner seems logical... If they go receiver they could take Dynami Brown or Bateman if hes there.. Don't forget WR Simi Fehoko later on...

  7. If they take Chase I'll be happy. If they take Sewell I'll be happy. If they take Pitts I'll be happy. If they can somehow work a trade back and come away with Slater or Vera-Tucker, I'll be over the moon happy.

  8. Smart guy. Lets hope the Bengals are too. Sewell or bust. However, should that option be gone, Chase or Pitts in that order. I just can't shake the feeling that if we pass on Sewell, we'll be chasing our tails for years to come. Trying to fill a premiere spot with a bunch of bandaids, has beens, turtles, etc... Joe Burrow will not replicate his success in the college ranks on the NFL stage without keeping upright. I'm not putting forth a guarantee because in life there is not one available. IF all the prognosticators are correct which is all we have to go off of, then Sewe

  9. How hard is it to know you have a problem with the O-line? Everyone else knows it. We should have gone after Feiler or Linsley in addition to Reiff and our apparent interest in Zeitler.

  10. The concern with Sewell is also arm length. As it was with Jonah Williams. The long arm OTs in this draft are Leatherwood or Darrisaw.

  11. So basically if they take Sewell everything is wonderful and there’s no need to worry about the rest of their picks because we’ll have the best o-line prospect in the draft. But if they don’t take Sewell we’re completely screwed and there’s little chance of anything working out given their recent draft failures. That’s nonsense and you know it. Good players are available after Round 1 and they will have options at o-line on Day 2 with whoever they take. Whether they hit on the picks won’t be known for awhile. Nobody expects a player taken after Sewell to be a better prospect. T

  13. It's not a contradiction. Instead of having Sewell, Reiff, or Williams on the bench, put them all on the field. Sewell will be a tackle long term. Slater probably won't. It didn't hurt Whitworth to spend time at guard before starting at tackle.

  15. In the simplest terms, the most convenient definitions, when you have your shot you take it. At the end of the season, 98% of the fan base would tell you that offensive line was the team's biggest need. When you subsequently have the chance to take the best option in that area of need on the board, you take a swing and you don't miss. The rest is just window dressing. You don't get distracted by shiny things and then assume a guy you want might be there in the second or later rounds. The Bengals play in the AFC North. Protect the QB, get their QB and run the ball. These are the key

  16. This is how I picture things going down... Somewhere in the Bengals "War Room" (aka Mikey's Garage): Duke Tobin: We have no starting offensive guards, Jonah has only played 10 games in two years, Trey has a blown out ACL and we've only signed Reiff for one season! Mike Brown: Weeeeeeeee! Weeeeeeee!!! Zac Taylor: Sir, can you stop spinning around in your chair so we can discuss the draft? MB: Ja'Marr Chase it is!! And for fuck sakes Zac stop leaning against the damn Lumina! You're going to scuff her up!! DT: But, Mike, didn

  21. Scott Barrett @ScottBarrettDFB · 2h I heard several days ago from a CIN source that HC wanted Sewell, OL coach wanted Slater, Burrow wanted Chase, ownership leaned Chase. Hearing from another team source today it's definitively Sewell. More plugged in guys than me now more confident it's Sewell too

  22. Yeah that is pretty nonsensical.. So why did you say it? Burrow was hit 75 times, I seriously doubt they were all off blitzes.

  26. This is another reason I don't want Chase. If there is a DE/DT that falls to our #2, I feel the Bengals will draft him and push OL to the third.

  28. They didn't consider it. They tried. And Atlanta wanted too much. They certainly wouldn't give up that much. Especially when they are assured Waddle or Smith will be there.

  32. God you are stupid. It’s April dumbass. You really can’t be this fucking stupid. You are aware that the season doesn’t end for another 8 months? Honestly, do you understand how this shit actually works? If you really gave a shit about the Bengals, you would be happy as fuck they still have money to spend in late April. Unfortunately, you just want an excuse to piss on the team every chance you get.

  33. Rumor is that the Lions seriously considered dealing ahead of the Bengals to take Chase. If we get to #5 and three of Chase, Sewell, Pitts and Slater are still there, I turn to Detroit and say OK, you've got a #2 (41), two #3's (72, 101) a #4 (112) and next year's #1. I try for #41 and any three of the other four, but if not, they give me 41, 72 and 101 (or) 114 and next year's #1 and we swap #5 for #7 - Ja'Marr is theirs.

  34. End of the day this team needs much more than just Chase/Sewell. Which is why I said the draft starts in round 2. The debate is mostly 50/50 but they really can’t lose either way. They can lose, and badly , after that if they fuck up the picks after that.

  35. If Andy Dalton is your QB it makes sense to create an O that features Joe Mixon and let Andy be a game manager. When you have Joe Burrow you give the kid every chance to win games for you.

  37. Cook was injured on a (sort of) tackle while scrambling. Tore his rotator cuff, which never received the proper treatment. Nothing really Bengal-like, back then everyone got “cortisone treatment” for pretty much everything. This was (I think) the photo of the tackle (and article) From The Enquirer GALLERY: Worst sports injuries in Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Greg Cook was the AFL rookie of the year in 1969, but a tackle by the Chiefs' Jim Lynch injured his shoulder. He had an undiagnosed torn rotator cuff which detereorated after the season and led to an early end to his

  42. Bullshit. Maybe an odd player, but if these guys were that good they wouldn't be going in round 3 and 4. There may be a lot of prospects in this OL class but that doesn't mean they are all of 1st/2nd round quality.

  43. A strong Oline makes less spectacular RBs, WRs, QBs, all look spectacular. Take Sewell and improve what we already have. A QB lying on his back can't throw to the draft's best receivers.

  44. He was 36 years old. 99% of the time that means you are NOT in your prime. That is PROPER context. The Rams signed him to a 3 year $33mil contract but only $15mil was guaranteed. They were trying to win a Super Bowl and needed a left tackle. Almost pulled it off. The Bengals sin was not having a replacement.

  45. No no no, WRs are over rated remember, and you can only find a Offensive Linemen, specifically a Tackle in the top 5. If you don't find one in the top 5 (Andrew Whitworth) Joe Burrow will get injured again and make Alex Smith's injury look like child's play. If we don't take a Olinemen with this first pick Joe might as well go ahead and retire. Am I doing this right?
