    Well I told you so. The talk about the Bengals not going TE was bs, the logic was bs, and it all showed. When the player is good enough to contribute right away for a team that wants to win RIGHT AWAY you take him! You don't take a Safety or Linebacker to sit for a year when you want a guy that can start this year and elevate the team's play. GREAT pick, the only player I'd have accepted over Jermaine was Dez Bryant there.

    We may be getting Sergio Kindle in the 2nd. It's not as far-fetched as it sounds. I expect a Cornerback and Safety tomorrow. Corner more so than Safety.

      I have a feeling that will get Everson Griffen or Taylor Mays in the 2nd

        I don't even think Mays would be a good 2nd round pick. I'd prefer Nate Allen or Morgan Burnett. They are much better football players.

          I tend to agree, but with Mike Zimmer I'd take Mays over Burnett. I'd say corner, Safety, and DL/OL/WR would be my expectations tomorrow. If a Linebacker falls, then hell yea. I'm already psyched though, the Bengals just got the player that can help them most in 2010 out of anyone in the entire draft (outside of Suh/McCoy).

          Our 2010 team just got better and that's what fans need to realize. Who cares about Chase Coffman? Should we have an emotional attachment to a guy that can't block & hasn't played a snap for us let alone stayed healthy for the past year and a half? Coffman can still be used as a receiver, the Colts used to use Ben Utecht & Dallas Clark, but Gresham is an enormous talent upgrade. I couldn't be happier with the pick.

            I'm surprised you guys still felt you were going to grab Dez after signing Antonio Bryant. You don't think that would of been a bit much? I also don't think it would end up any other way then ugly with Antonio and Dez fighting for looks outside of Chad, because Antonio has already been vocal about getting the ball.


            I kinda figured signing Antonio Bryant bought you guys a few years on taking a WR in the 1st round. Gresham is legit and helps in alot more ways, still has to work on his blocking and staying healthy, but man you guys sure have given Carson some weapons to utilize.


            Hopefully Andre Smith steps up his play next season.

              Bryant was just such a massive talent sitting at 21, I think most of us feel that he was BPA. Even so though, Now that I've had time to think about it -- Gresham can start from day and make a huge impact, while Bryant would have to sit behind Ocho and Bryant and possibly even Caldwell for at least a year.

              The other thing about this pick is it gives me a small glimmer of hope for Jerome Simpson or Matt Jones being productive. Clearly passing on Bryant showed faith in our current receivers.

                I guess I'm just not as confident in Antonio Bryant as some others. I think he can be a good player no doubt, but it's hard to pass up on someone like Dez Bryant. Sure, he has some concerns about his character but his talent is undeniable. I'll tell you one thing, I'm glad he didn't end up within the division.

                Heck, maybe this does mean they have some confidence in what they can get outta some of the newer guys like Matt Jones, Andre Caldwell, and Simpson.

                The other thing with Gresham is that I haven't really seen him to be much of a blocker. Sure, he has the size and ability to be good in that area with time, but there's still not guarantee he can even do it. I have faith in him, I'm not necessarily mad about the pick, and I hope he becomes a great player.

                  Now the question is who made the pick Brown or Lewis? I believe this is a Lewis pick just because if Brown was picking it would have been Bryant.

                    Yea it sounds like this was a Lewis pick. Thank God. I know you guys didn't expect the pick but you're going to absolutely love Jermaine Gresham. He's going to be the biggest instant impact rookie we've had since Odell Thurman, R.I.P. (might as well be).

                      I agree its going to be defense tonight. Safety for sure with our 2nd pick, then I really think their going to go either DE or DT BPA for our 3rd. Cornerback and OLB to be considered although I think we can pick up either of them in the 4th rounds. WR if the right one is there is a possibility also. I don't think we will see OL until much later.

                      2nd Round defense candidates:

                      Mays - S
                      N Allen - "
                      M Burett - "
                      M Wright - "
                      Chris Cook - CB
                      Brian Price - DT
                      Daryl Washington - OLB
                      Dunlop - DE

                      3rd Round candidates:

                      Jerome Murphy - CB
                      J Cunningham - DE
                      C Wooten - DE
                      Sapp - DE/OLB
                      C Mitchell - WR

                      3rd Round Comp:

                      Myron Lewis - CB
                      Chad Jones - S
                      Arthur Moats - OLB
                      Atkins - DT
                      Mike Williams - WR

                      Who Dey! Will be at a beer tasting event tonight with 3 other couples, TV will be on and it should be a fun night.

                          Not that I didnt expect it, I just didnt want it with Bryant and Kindle there still.

                            I was just suprized that we pasted on Bryant. I take it Brown is giving up some of his power to Lewis now when it comes to drafting. I really did not have a care who we got as long we did not Taylor Mays in the 1st. Mays is still an option in the 2nd i would not mind him in the 2nd just because that would be good value at that point. I still want Gilyard love the kids work ethic and character.

                              2nd will be too high for Mardy.
                              With guys like Benn, Tate and them still available, Mardy could easily fall to the 3rd.

                              Our 2nd rounder has to address the secondary.
