Best Bengals lineup since Super Bowl XXIII: Right Guard

Continuing our series of building the best lineup since the Bengals Super Bowl XXIII game.

As we pointed out Thursday morning, we're configuring the best Bengals lineup since Cincinnati last appeared in the Super Bowl (1988 season, 1989 calendar year). We'll go through each position, provide the candidates, give you my pick, and then you guys debate/poll the winners.

Time to get down with the ogres, the ballerinas of awesome, the soul of football, the core of why football is the best sport in the country. We've already opened the polls at left tackle, left guard, and center. Now let's finish the offensive line on the right side, starting with right guard.

THE CANDIDATES

Bobbie Williams: You rarely found a better player to chat with than Bobbie Williams, who expertly displayed the cheerful big-guy persona. A balanced blocker, Williams played well in pass protection but earned a living mauling defenders in Cincinnati's running game. From 2008-2010, Williams ranked as one of the top six offensive guards in the NFL, according to Pro Football Focus.

He was part of an offensive line that helped Rudi Johnson break the single-season franchise rushing mark (twice), then helped remold Cincinnati's offensive philosophy in 2009 as a run-first powerhouse. Williams only missed time twice in his eight-year career with Cincinnati. An appedecomy forced him to miss three games in 2006 and a league-forced suspension (plus injury) required him to miss seven games in 2011; his final in Cincinnati.

Mike Goff: Goff joined the Bengals as a third-round pick during the 1988 NFL draft and became the full-time starter in 2000. He played through 2003 and left for the San Diego Chargers where he blocked for an explosive offense and earned The Sports Illustrated All-Pro award plus two USA Today All-Joe teams.

Kevin Zeitler: Only played one season, but considering that season was as a rookie against some of the league's best defenses, it's an impressive start to a career that figures to earn high-praise. Zeitler ranked as the seventh-best right guard in the NFL, according to Pro Football Focus and 12th overall.
