Exploring the Possibility of the Bengals moving back in the Draft, and why!

We all know that the are in no way shape ar form a excellent drafting team. However the past couple of years have been good drafts for the Bengals. (A.J. Green, Andy Dalton, Geno Atkins and Undrafted Free Agent Signing in Vontaze Burfictt. This year the Bengals have 3 picks by the end of Round 2 in their hands. It fits perfectly with the fact that we have three big positions of need. However I am exploring the possibility of trading out of are 21st overall pick and having three 2nd round picks and change. I have played out many scenarios in my head for how it could turn out, but the one that I think makes the most sense is this. Remember in 2008 when the Clevland Browns needed a QB and OT. Everybody thought that they would draft Notre Dame QB Brady Quinn, but they didn't they opted for a big and smart OT in future pro bowler Joe Thomas. Since no other teams needed a QB Quinn fell all the way out of the top 20. The Browns then traded their pick in the second round (and a little more) to the Philadelphia Eagles for the 22nd overall pick, they then drafted Brady Quinn and got their QB. I think that history could repeat itself but the Cardinals are the Browns, Eric Fisher is Joe Thomas, Matt Barkley is Brady Quinn (and yes I'm impling that Matt Barkley will have the same amount of influence in the NFL that Brady Quinn has.) and the Bengals are the Eagles. It makes sense for the Bengals as well when you think about it. Now they have 3 second round picks to draft let's say Arthur Brown, Johnathan Cyperin and Johnathan Frannklin to fill the three big holes that the Bengals have. Plus we walk away with a 2nd next year or something like that, and a good relationship with the Cardinals- even if Matt Barkley turns out to be the next Brady Quinn
