My "This Could Never Happen" Fanspeak, complete with source link to prove it did.

24 DT DONALD, AARON PITTSBURGH

While I, as most Bengals fans do, desperately covet a starting CB at #24, there are two players who would change my mind instantly. If I were acting GM, Donald is one of those two players that I would take before a CB.

55 DE EALY, KONY MISSOURI

As a second round steal, Ealy's ability to create turnovers, sacks, and block passes forces me to grab him. He'll continue to bolster Cincy's impressive depth on the defensive line. This is what good teams do, they build and rebuild in the draft. Keeping positions of strength strong, good-bye MJ wish it could have been different, but the Bengals are moving on.

88 RB HYDE, CARLOS OHIO STATE

Whether you believe BenJarvus Green-Ellis has more to offer in 2014 or that Lawfirm will finish his contract in Cincy, this is a value pick and a need. The Bengals want to run the ball more in 2014. They're going to need someone who can pound the rock. Meet the next coming of the old school Bengals offensive attack: Gio, Hyde, Lawfirm, and either, Peerman or Burkhead.

123 C SWANSON, TRAVIS ARKANSAS

Not since Rich Braham played in Cincy have the Bengals possessed a center of this quality on the roster. Swanson will push Pollack for playing time early.

164 CB COLVIN, AARON OKLAHOMA

An injured play-maker. Colvin would have been near the top of this year's CB class until he suffered his ACL injury. He'll spend 2014 on the Bengals IR. Replacing a departing Newman in 2015.

199 CB BREELAND, BASHAUD CLEMSON

More of a cover CB than a run defender. His body is a bit of a question mark, he's going to struggle to start 16 games a season in the NFL. While he's on the field, he'll cover with the best of the Bengals CBs. This is the price for getting Donald and Ealy. Also makes the Colvin pick a wise investment, in case Breeland becomes another brittle body like Ghee or Dre.

212 OT BRITT, JUSTIN MISSOURI

Another durability question mark, he's played well when he's been healthy. Can play either tackle position and has the right disposition for the NFL. Needs some work on his mechanics, plays with an attitude. Could be a steal.

239 FB ABRAM, CHAD FLORIDA STATE

With my top three choices at FB off the boards, I'm left considering the best FB options available. Abram converted from safety to fullback in college. He could bring something to the NFL that hasn't been around for a while, a fullback with hands. Remember last year when the Bengals tried that experiment with Charles? What if you could find a FB in the draft that could block and catch?

252 QB SAVAGE, TOM PITTSBURGH

Stop it Fanspeak, you silly mocking engine, Savage will not be available at 252.
