Bengals draft a guard in the first round????

For those of you that are foaming at the mouth for our beloved Bengals to draft the next great Bengal guard with one of this year's first round picks. I thought I’d share this information with you. I know that lately it's looking more and more possible that this tiger may indeed change its stripes but, our draft history when it comes to guards is telling. We have never taken a true guard in the first round. Only 4 in the second round, 5 in the third and 5 in the fourth. As you can see, not a lot of high marquee names here. The Bengals seem to prefer taking later round OT’s and converting them to guards. I wouldn’t necessarily be disappointed but, I would be surprised to see us take one in the first round this year. This could be yet another year of breaking streaks but, don’t get your hopes up too high!
