Bengals trade 1st round pick to the Browns for their 2nd and 3rd round picks (numbers 35 and 71). The Bengals never had intentions of drafting a QB in round 1 as Dalton is THE MAN. The Browns take TB with pick number 24. The point values are 740 vs. 785 in the Bengals favor.
The Bengals do NOT draft a tight end as O. Charles will return to this position and be a better blocker/receiver than any available tight ends.
The Bengals will NOT draft a power runner to compliment Gio. The Law Firm and Rex will continue in this role.
Team first attitude, character, coachability, speed. and reactionary time are more important than rankings and hype.
So, here are the prizes:
Round 2 - J. Bitonio OT Neveda
Round 2 - Demarcus Lawrence DE Boise State
