Well, I did it.
With the 4th selection in the MTD live mock draft, the Cincinnati Bengals select: Cameron Newton, QB Auburn.
With the 35th pick, the Cincinnati Bengals select Adrian Clayborne, DE Iowa.
Now I know those guys are probably not who you wanted, but hey, none of you wanted to draft for your team. When that happens, you leave it up to someone else.
I'm just kidding. I got you guys
Ponder was picked 5 spots before my 2nd round selection, or else he would have been the pick over Dalton. I even tried to move back into the bottom of the 2nd to grab Aaron Williams, but he got picked right as I was talking to the guy who was drafting the very next pick. Pissed me off...
Anyway, rounds 3, 4 and I think 5 are tomorrow. I have the second pick in round 3, and all the strong safeties are still on the board. Looks like I'll be able to grab Deunta Williams or DeAndre McDaniel for you.
*UPDATE!* With the 66th pick (3rd), I got you Tyler Sash, SS Iowa.
*UPDATE!* With the 101st pick (4th), I got you Demarcus Love, G Arkansas.
*UPDATE!* With the 134th pick (5th), I got you Pierre Allen, DE Nebraska
*UPDATE!* With the 6th round pick, I got you Mario Butler, CB Georgia Tech.
*UPDATE!* With the 7th round pick, I got you Torey Gurley, WR/TE South Carolina.
*UPDATE!* With the only comp pick (round 7), I got you Elijah Joseph, ILB Temple
Now, I'm just waiting to see if I got the 4 UDFA's I wanted.
*UPDATE!* UDFA's are:
Jonathan Freeny DE, Rutgers
Guy Miller, DT Colorado St
Jock Sanders wr West Virginia
Duke Ihenacho SS, San Jose St
Green, Dalton, Sash, and Love are all very solid picks. They should all make an impact in their first year. Allen and Butler were slight reaches but still solid picks. Gurley is a steal in round 7 and Joseph is a solid pick. The four UDFA's will struggle to make the roster. Very solid draft.
Gimme feedback folks.
