My surprised pick for #17


All right people I'm back full time. I've been lurking beyond the scenes for a while commenting periodically on things that I just couldn't resist not too. (haha) I thought I can control this, but I guess you can say that I fell off the wagon and started doing crack again. Oh well!

For those of you that don't get that, well I said that this place is like feeding a crack addict cocaine. I just needed some time away from this place b/c it's so addicting and my emotions were running at all time high.

With that being said, I have been sorting through all the articles and mocks that have been posted, only to come up with my own conclusions. With the Eagles trading for Demarco Ryans a FA MLB from the Texans, I think they will use their 1st pick on another need such as a wide receiver. That will leave their projected pick of our home town stud MLB Luke Kuechly for the Bengals to grab him at 17. This kid is very smart and can play the Mike position from day one. This could actually be Marvin Lewis' next Ray Lewis. This would mean that Rey Maualuga could be taking a back seat or a trade bait scenario. I think Marvin has had his fill with Rey and of course things would have to fall just right for this to happen. I'm being bold with this one b/c Luke is the real deal. Experts say he will be a game changer for a defense that chooses him. This isn't my homerism either, b/c I didn't even know that he was from here until a couple of days ago.

With the 21st pick I think that the Bengals will take Stephon Gilmore. I know, I know, you say 2 defensive player in round 1? Yes in deed. You heard this first right here fellas. This kid is smart and has absolutely no baggage. He will be very sound in the back field for us.

For my final prediction in the 2nd round, I believe that the Bengals will take OG/OT Kelechi Osemele out of Iowa St. He is big and fast and could play the Tackle position as well. Fits in well with his size on this line, just like they like'm. This would be insurance too with Andre coming into his final year of his contract.

These picks will fill the needs of what the Bengals have and also will be the BPA at these picks without reaching. IMO, this would be a very solid first two rounds.

It's great to be back but I'm still looking to change my username. It's time for a change....
