Ranking Bengals after the first week of camp

New, comments

The following is a simple ranking based on the first week of training camp; basically where I ranked players at their position from reports and scrimmage games. This is not a projection of who makes the roster. Rankings are also different for positions like offensive tackle, where the first two are starters and are not ranked within themselves. I also didn't see the point of listing Kyle Larson or Shayne Graham because they are the only players at their respective positions. There are some players that we're simply not hearing about, so I listed them in no particular order further down the list truly not expecting them to make much of a difference in the grand scheme of things. Also, the numbers are not adding up -- the team has 80 players on the roster, but based on the roster list on, that number isn't coming out on the ranking below -- but it's really not that big of a deal and not the point of rankings. Anyway, tell me your thoughts on places you think needs adjusting.
