I actually went through the first round team-by-team, but I won't bore you with that. Here's just the Bengals' picks:
24. Trade with 49ers - Bengals get #30 and #94. All my top choices - Dennard, Gilbert, Fuller, Ealy, etc - were gone by this point. We could have gotten Verrett or Roby, but I think there's better value at CB in the later rounds.
30. Morgan Moses, OT UVA - From what I read, Moses just needs to work on technique to become a really good LT. He can take over when Whit retires or moves inside to LG. vs. Oregon
55. Bashaud Breeland, CB Clemson - Since I passed on a CB in the 1st, I feel like I have to take one here. Breeland vs FSU.
88. Phillip Gaines, CB Rice - I'm getting more and more excited about Gaines. He showed his speed at the combine and looks like a great cover corner. This is the only video I could find of him.
94. Jeremy Hill, RB LSU - Maybe I'm biased because I'm an LSU fan, but I love Hill. He can do it all and would be a great one-two punch with Gio. Hill can be a power back, but has the speed and moves to break off long runs. This video is awesome except the music.
123. Will Clarke, DE West Virginia - not an instant starter, but Clarke will provide some depth behind Gillberry/Hunt with a lot of potential highlights
164. Tyler Larsen, C Utah - depth since we cut Cook. Pollack seems like he's the starter at Center which is why I waited this long to grab one. Who wants to see highlights of a Center? Here's Taz instead
199. Sean Parker, S Washington - Some more depth can't hurt. Eric Moore from YouTube's comments section would take him in the 1st round so he must be a steal in the 6th!!
212. JC Copeland, FB LSU - another LSU fan pick. If Hue wants a smash mouth run game, this is the type of FB you want. Just don't hand it off to him at the goal line. Damn it... Check out his interview "I'm tryin to punish someone"
239. Tevin Reese, WR Baylor Not that anyone could replace Hawkins, but...another quick slot receiver would be a nice weapon. highlights
252. Boseko Lokombo, OLB Oregon - I just like his name haha...he could add depth since Harrison was cut, but honestly probably just a PS player. highlights
I spent way too much time on this. OK go ahead and tell me why I'm wrong!
