Randle P McMurphy Posted April 5, 2018 Report Share Posted April 5, 2018 Admittedly, I haven't done a whole lot of research on players but here it is anyways. Fire away! Round 1 - Center - James Daniels - Iowa https://www.nfl.com/prospects/james-daniels?id=32462018-0002-5600-48e1-4044bbc76ad1 Reason for pick: Pretty obvious we need a Center. I would have considered Billy Price here but the site had him listed as a "Guard" and I didn't notice it until afterwards. He went in the 2nd round to the Redskins. Round 2 - OT - Orlando Brown - Oklamoma https://www.nfl.com/prospects/orlando-brown?id=32462018-0002-5598-966e-c097dcfe7190 Reason for pick: We need all the OL help we can get! He didn't have the best combine obviously but he's got things that can NOT be taught. Size, (6' 5" 345 lbs & 35 inch arms). Could more than likely plug him in at RT from day 1. Round 3 - TE - Hayden Hurst - South Carolina https://www.nfl.com/prospects/hayden-hurst?id=32462018-0002-5600-72f9-7623b6673aa8 Reason for pick: If I recall correctly, all 3 TE's will be FA's following the 2018 season. He'll be 25 at the start of the 2018 NFL season so he won't grow any more physically probably BUT he's not reached his "potential" as a TE yet. He was drafted by the Pittsburgh Pirates out of high school in 2012 and walked on at South Carolina in 2015 so he obviously is athletic. Had 100 receptions at South Carolina and only 1 dropped pass. (How many times have we, as Bengals fans, lost our shit over dropped passes!?) lol Round 3 - CB - Duke Dawson - Florida https://www.nfl.com/prospects/duke-dawson?id=32462018-0002-5600-21da-5c2f1a37df8f Reason for pick: Dawson will probably be a "nickel/slot" CB. Dennard will be a FA following the 2018 season. Possible replacement for Dennard unless he, (Dennard), just blows up this season and even then, he'll come a lot cheaper.
