  1. Uzomah stayed relatively healthy last year while Eifert and Kroft were injured. He's capable of doing the job and I think the Bengals believe that Sample can develop into a complete TE. He didn't get many chances at Washington but it wasn't like he didn't run routes. Browning just never threw him the ball. He displayed good hands in his limited chances and he tested well athletically at the combine. Obviously his blocking ability is his strength at this point but he has room to grow as a receiver.
  2. I think they'll limit Eifert to situational snaps, red zone and 3rd downs most likely. Uzomah will be used more as a receiver and Sample more as a blocker. Not counting on Eifert to stay healthy and we have options if/when he can't go.

    Hobson: In The Situation Room

    Stealers won the Super Bowl in 2008. Ravens advanced to AFC Championship and lost to the Stealers. Bengals won 10 in 2009 and Ravens also made playoffs and beat NE in the Wild Card Round.

    AFCN was stacked from 2008-2012. 3 Super Bowl appearances with wins by Baltimore and Pittsburgh. Bengals also made playoffs 3 times. Ravens eliminated NE from playoffs twice in that span and Stealers did it twice to the Ravens.

    Last year didn't cost Marvin his job. The last 3 years did. It was time for him to go. Sorry if you don't like the new guy, but I don't have any nostalgia for the Marvin era.

    Hobson: In The Situation Room

    I like the idea of focusing on details/small stuff and it's smart to embrace analytics (even if way too late). Probably explains why they hired a record number of assistants. It's a big change from conservative, old school Marvin and it's something this franchise has never tried before.
  7. I guess you can't have enough training camp fodder at RB. This guy played at Pitt and was originally signed by the Browns. At best he's fighting for a spot on the practice squad.
  8. I think the Bengals were taking Williams regardless. OT is a more important position than LB and both were major needs. I liked Bush as a prospect and would have been happy if he had been picked instead of Williams. I didn't like that deal for Pittsburgh and thought they gave up too much. Overall the Stealers had a good draft but dealing a 2nd round pick is tough to swallow.

    UDFAs...Who do you want?

    From what I've been able to read, it seems like Morgan is the best UDFA the Bengals signed and he's the most likely to make the 53 man roster. He was second team All BIG10 each of the last two years and leaves Nebraska with numerous school records. I have no doubt he can outperform a bunch of the WR who got picked and I bet he's motivated to do so. The other UDFA to keep an eye on is QB Jacob Dolegala. Small school prospect with plus size and good athleticism. He was productive throwing and running and I can see him being stashed in the practice squad.
  10. I'm thinking Jordan was picked to replace Boling, who is a free agent after 2019. Jordan played LG for two years at OSU and it's probably his best position. Boling is on the wrong side of 30 and might be too expensive to keep around. Just reading the tea leaves and I won't be surprised if I'm completely wrong and Boling ends up re-signing.
  11. Boling wasn't very good last year either. Miller also had a down year with the Bills but he played well in 2017 when they made the playoffs (with a huge assist from Dalton to Boyd). The good part is that they have options if someone struggles or goes down. Westerman and Jordan are both going to push for snaps. Hopkins is primary backup at center and Hart is 1st tackle off the bench. Not perfect by any means, but at least better than last year or even two weeks ago.
  12. They did sign BW Webb in addition to Dennard. I don't see Dre K going anywhere with the current depth at CB. It doesn't seem like Dennard is at risk of missing games or even training camp so my overall concern is very low.
  13. The top 10 in this draft was really strange. No RB, WR, CB, S, or OL were picked. 7 of the 10 were defensive players, including 2 linebackers. The Bengals were lucky to be able to take their top o-line prospect at #11. Williams will push Hart to the bench where he belongs. Literally every Bengals fan should be happy about that. We also now have insurance for Glenn if/when an injury happens. I think it was exactly the right pick to address a major need and have an immediate impact this year.
  14. Maybe I'm oversimplifying things but doesn't it make sense for an offensive player to prefer playing for an offensive head coach? Especially when the head coach will be calling plays himself. Taylor will be focused on the offense unlike Marvin. Why shouldn't our star WR be happy about the change?
  15. Plenty of people think the Bengals aren't serious about winning because they have kept Dalton as QB. If he leaves, it will be because of money and the new staff owing him nothing. My hope would be a better option than Finley to replace Dalton if it comes to that. Ideally, we won't see Finley unless there's an injury and Dalton plays well in the new system.
