"ESPN Insider" loves and hates the Bengals Prospects

In a somewhat interesting and paradoxical twist, ESPN Insiders ranks the Bengals as the 6th most talented team for developing players under 25.  However, there are exactly zero players that are ranked in the top 25 on their list of the future NFL prospects (11-25, and 1-10).  The caveat here is that there are some parameters to the prospect list, which are.

• Be in the second, third, or fourth year of their pro career
• Have been drafted in Rounds 3-7 or signed as an undrafted free agent
• Have started fewer than five career games in the NFL
• Still be on their rookie contract

Those parameters exclude players like Rey Maualuga and Keith Rivers, but guys like Michael Johnson, Bernard Scott, and Chase Coffman (maybe he doesn't deserve to be on this list, but I do still think that he has potential) all would be eligible.  Michael Johnson was probably overlooked here, and perhaps one could make a case for Scott as well.  For some reason this feels like the pro-bowl snub all over again.  Great team accolades, no personal ones.
