Mardy wont be there!

If the Bengals want to take Gilyard they'll have to find a pick at the top of the second round. They wont spend 1st round money on him at #21, and NewEngland/Carolina are sure to nab him ahead of us midway through the 2nd. So unless...

1) We trade those comp picks to move up, or drop down outta the 1st

2) Mardy pulls an Eli for his team, or

3) The Bengals draft him at #21 after they've already agreed, in private, on a smaller deal...

I don't see number one wearing orange and black next season. But personally, I would trade what i had to to get in position to grab the guy. Just check out this video...

Mardy Gilyard: "This ones for the 513" (via big10todd)

 

Dude loves Cincy, the Bengals, and UC, and knows of the effort it takes to be a boss. He's already familiar with a number of Bengals players, and he could really be a spiritual/courageous/positive leader behind the scenes. There is no way you don't respect this guy... Carson, Chad, Shaun Smith, Brock Lesnar, I don't care who you are.

This franchise is known for its flamboyant, excitable, wideouts. Gilyard could easily be the long-term replacement for 85 when he retires. Mardy could bring the same passion. Chad loves the Nati because of the way the fame-depraved small-market has flexibly nurtured his ego and star-power. Gilyard's deep Nati roots, and understanding of the city's downtrodden population (along with his talent) have already elevated him to near-ocho level recognition in the area.
