I think Most will be surprised with their choices in round 2 and 3...

Good ones allways drop for reasons..

Good players don’t always drop, it is just simple math. If there are 100 good players available that is 3 rounds

You know what's interesting about that last statement? Not one thing has changed as far as film on these kids, well in particular, Sewell vs Chase. The film during the offseason had Sewell as the clea

Chase is the highest rated wide receiver in the draft, the best since Julio Jones but Pitts is the better receiver. Period. Nothing says he has to be nailed down to the tight end spot,

This notion that we desperately need another WR but will be fine with whoever is left over on the OL is absurd.

I'm pro to trading back. More so than I probably ever have been. I am not entirely sold on any of the top prospects to the point I think there are equitably solid picks further down the board in the first. My poll question would be...

 

Would you trade down?

How far would you be willing to drop back?

What compensation would you require to do this?

 

Trading back makes more sense if there is a run on QBs.  If Jones and the North Dakota guy are sought after along with Fields, that could make 5-6 QBs taken in the top 10.  Drop from 5 to 8-9 or so and take one of Sewell, Chase, Pitts, Parsons, Slater

Of the 3 choices I believe that Sewell is the only one that helps the Bengals offense no matter who is playing QB.  That is one thing to keep in mind.

Don't forget Mixon. One of the reasons Burrow was a tackling dummy was the fact we couldn't run the ball for shit.

I’m back and forth on this one, but the depth at OL in this draft and the lack of the type of WR we need in this draft make Chase the choice for me.  We can get GOOD, quality starters on the OL in the 2nd and 3rd round whereas there may not be a starting WR in the 2nd or 3rd rounds.  Most WRs in this draft play the slot and that’s not what we need.  If we knew Terrace Marshall would be there in the 2nd, I’d go with Sewell, but the odds of that are slim.  However, there’s a great chance either Dickerson, Humphrey, Leatherwood, etc. will be there in the 2nd and all of them are day 1 starters for us.  Tough decision, but at 4:40p on April 10th, I’m thinking Chase.

Our receivers were 2/10ths of a second too slow?

Plays a part for sure..

Blocking throwing catching all connected to the hip bone...

Exactly. Plus Chase will likely be a higher graded player than Sewell.

Chase is the highest rated wide receiver in the draft, the best since Julio Jones

but Pitts is the better receiver. Period.

Nothing says he has to be nailed down to the tight end spot,

How many times did we see our tight ends spit out wide?

Best receiver and a match up nightmare.

84" wingspan.

We're not going to take him.

Not impossible Atlanta takes him if he is there.

 

I will be OK with Chase or Sewell but still think Pitts may the best player

available to us at 5 and we will be foolish and not take him.

 

OL in 2 and 3.  Maybe talk extension for Reiff if things look good with him.

 

We still have a lot of dead wood and meh players at OL with left overs from last year.

Price and Jordan.  Hey, Center can be upgraded.

 

But there's always next year for that.  Pitts doesn't come around all that often.

I agree that Pitts is the best "receiver" in the draft.  It would be hard to pass him by.  My biggest fear if they do not fix the Oline is that whoever is the QB won't find any receivers in the clouds because that is all they will be seeing flat on their ass.

What's absurd is to say that's what anyone has said.

I'm a Sewell guy. I think the first job is protecting Burrow, and I think Sewell is THE NUMBER ONE O- lineman in the Draft!  They Picked the Best QB last year, Pick the Best Lineman this year to keep him clean.

The reality is Lawrence and Pitts are projecting to be generational talents.  They are by far the two best players in the draft.  
 

Sewell looks to be a very good player but do the Bengals use the #5 pick on a player that will probably be “good”?   No doubt good would be very helpful on that line.

That is the draft strategy straight from Tobin's mouth and plenty here as well.  Own it.

Possible that Lawrence, Pitts, Chase, Sewell are the first 4 picks, if not in that order.

 

What then?

 

With the Jets trading Darnold, they're picking a QB.  With SF trading up and giving up lots of draft capital, they're choosing a QB as well.  If the scenario you mentioned above plays out and we can't trade down, you go with Slater or Waddle.  In this case I'd take Slater even though Waddle brings something this offense needs with which is a WR that brings speed and separation.  That's something even Chase doesn't give you lots of.  Yes, Chase ran a "4.38", but it doesn't really show on tape to me.  He makes a lot of contested catches because DBs are with him, but Waddle (and Smith) separates which is a valuable trait.

Not gonna happen but "what then" would be we would trade our pick for a multi year gold mine

of high picks and draft Slater a highly regarded receiver and another top notch O lineman.

That's pretty interesting since those traits (speed/separation) are the main reasons I keep seeing for why we should draft him over OL.  

 

Really think this guy is being overhyped around here because of the Burrow connection.  This QB doesn't need training wheels, he needs blockers.

We should do that regardless.  That helps the team far more than Sewell, Chase, or whoever at #5.

 

Don't get the FO's stubborn reluctance to consider it, just seems lazy.

Wasnt long ago Sewell was considered with the generational tag..

Now hes just good?

Howd that happen?

I dont think Chase is generational at all..

Pitts maybe i don't know..

I thought the whole idea was to help with the run game and protect the franchise QB ..

Guess i thought wrong huh?
