Draft vs. Free Agency


Considering the quality and depth in the draft, what position would best be addressed in FA?

A Guard would open up the Bengals to drafting needed positions of DB and RB in the first round. But grabbing a high profile G in free agency is unlikely.

So what about WR? This pretty much leaves the Bengals to draft a different area of need in the later rounds as they will likely not be drafting a WR in the first two rounds anyway, so a FA wr acquisition doesn't really effect the draft. \

RB? The only RB free agent I think makes sense for the Bengals is M. Bush. Others like Rice and Forte aren't going anywhere and MB wouldn't spend the kind of money required. And even Bush is unlikely as the Raiders have an injury prone Run DMC, so they will likely try and retain Bush.

What about DB? Brandon Carr? However unlikely, grabbing a DB of Carr's caliber in free agency would break the draft wide open for the Bengals in my opinion. Now, it would be more of a "best available player" type draft opposed to a need oriented draft. There are still "needs" (Guard), but I'm pretty sure the only glaring need is in the secondary.

Interested to hear your thoughts. (This was also a post motivated by lack of new mock drafts, haha.) I already can't wait for next season. WHO DEY!
