Figured I would go ahead and put out the first of my five Bengals mock drafts tonight. I will write one per month, changing as the off season goes along. This is not including any comp. picks.
1.) Jason Verrett; Corner: I don't think he is the best corner in this class, but I do think he is available when we pick. As of right now he fits our system very well. This is a tough physical corner who can play on an island and succeed.
2.) Trent Murphy; Defensive End: Due to a run of quarterbacks and commitments of underclassmen, I can see Murphy dropping. Large man who can control one side of the line by himself.
3.) Aaron Murray,Quarterback : Big arm, smart, and a leader. This is a pick I love. Drafted in round three means no pressure to start. All he will be asked to do is learn the first year and hold the clipboard.
4.) Travis Swanson: Center: Highly regarded as the best center in this draft. Might not last this long, but in this mock he did.
5.) Morgan Moses; Tackle: Would be a tower on line standing 6ft. 6in. 325lbs. and is versatile. Can play at tackle and guard.
6.) Josh Shirley: Linebacker: This would be Donte Moch 2.0. Just a situational pass rusher that can be used on third down and special teams.
7.) Kenny Hilliard: Running Back: BIG BRUSIER. Might be new thunder to Benards lightning. With BJGE contract expiring, smart money would say he walks.
