should be doing everything they can to get Jonathan Stewart
into the fold. We have the picks and the need. Stweart is only 25 years old and is rated #1 on the ranking of elusive backs (those that gain yards after contact by profootballfocus.com's calculations). This inability to gain yards after contact has been the MAIN knock on CB. To compare, CB is 55 of 56 RBs; Bush is 50 of 56; BJGE is 43; Lynch is 15 and Forte 11 of 56. Jonathan Stewart is #1. number friggin 1.
If we could swing a trade for Stewart (instead of trading up for the unproven Trent Richardson) we could draft DeCastro to solidify the line and get that corner we want so badly with the second 1st rounder. Finally, most of the LBs or WR people are projecting are later round choices as well. The talk is that Carolina wants at least a 3, the Bengals could easily part with a 2 and come out with a brilliant offseason (never thought I'd write that).
Imagine if you will (from L to R) Whit-Wharten-Cook-DeCastro-Smith blocking for BJGE-Stewart-Scott and buying time for Gresham-AJ-Shipley-and a role player to be named. I think we should go for Burress for redzone situations (he's still one of the best receivers in redzone situations, a major weakness the Bengals had) - and bring on the young guys in other passing situations. That is something to be feared!
