Before everyone screams that we need a CB and RB and a 2nd WR. Just listen to me...................OK
Our offensive and defensive lines were both very physical at times and then soft as babypoo at other times. You win games in the trenches. This team has had a whole lot of success when we were able to run the rock and stop the rock. Houston exposed a lot of holes in our team last year. They showed us that we are not as good as we thought. I love the Bengals but it's the truth.
Some people love Glenn and some thinks he sucks. If this kid can play LT in the SEC he can play OG in the NFL. He had his ups and downs but he is built to play guard and would fit in at either OG spots or he can play RT and kick Andre Smith inside where he could be a PRO BOWL OG. I know that he was a top 10 pick but I think he would dominate inside.....just my opinion.
This Poe kid is going to be special and i don't think he will last until 17 but he is fast and physical. I love Peko but Poe has the chance to be an all pro DT/NT. Drafting Poe would truly allow Zimmer to be able to play this hybrid 3-4, 4-3 that he has been talking about for the last few seasons and if we bring back Pat Sims this team would be set at the tackle position. Peko is a good run stuffer but gives us nothing as far pass rushing.
It's clear that the Bengals are not going to make a splash in FA and I think by drafting these 2 players gives us the best chance to win. We can draft the best CB or RB on the board in the 2nd round if they don't fill one of their holes in FA.
I am looking forward to reading everyones feedback!!
