Why don't the Bengals make a draft guide for their fans?

We're all in the process of gearing up for the draft, we're in hardcore mode, craving the team and sport we love so much. Some of us are keeping a mental countdown to the beginning of the 2012 draft - football season never really ends for us. I spend time on the Vikings site, I've been a lifelong fans of the Vikings as well a Bengals fan. The other day one of their fans posted a draft guide that impressed me. After reading the Vikes guide, I got a little envious, where is the Bengals version of this wonderful team created draft guide?

Spending some time on the mothership's website, I found a few draft stories of interest for all to read, but no draft guide. An overview of past Bengals drafts, a collection of draft profiles for 2012, rankings of prospect depth versus the Bengals needs, a deeper look at specific prospects and positions, a listing of our current 1st round picks on the roster, a breakdown of Bengal draft methodology under Marvin, and a story about the local prospects making a run at the NFL dream. Not one link or hint of a true 2012 Bengals draft guide.

At this point I decided to attack the quest from the other end, using Google and an asset search for the url "Prod.static.bengals.clubs.nfl.com" which might yield a hidden gem or two. Maybe I can find the Bengal's 2012 draft guide there. Nope. The Bengal's 2011 Media Guide can be found there. As can the team's complete draft history for the franchise, a chronological history of the Bengals, and the 2011 opening day press release for the Cleveland Browns game.

At this point I sighed, deciding to head over to Hobson's twitter and ask if he would look into creating a Bengal's Draft Guide.
