Friday, May 4, 2007Bengals Draft Review
The NFL draft has come (yea!!) and gone (boo...by the way, is there a way to punctuate a sad feeling? Exclamation marks represent happy or excited...what represents sad? Besides the frowny face thing? Anything? Where was I...oh yes...the draft). The Bengals made their picks and I am sure you have been waiting for my thoughts on them:
Round 1 - Leon Hall, Michigan, CB
Leon Hall is a good player and I am surprised (and happy!! see, there they are again) that he fell to the Bengals at 18. He is a solid solid player and won't make a lot of mistakes. I am a bit concerned that he gets run past (apparently) and that he is from Michigan. I am a Buckeye...so that's no good. Also, the last guy we got from Michigan has bones made from ________ (insert easily broken material).
Round 2 - Kenny Irons, Auburn, RB
I was surprised at this pick at first, but all the defensive players we wanted were taken right before. So this pick makes sense. Mostly because we need it to replace Chris Perry, whose bones made from ________ (insert easily broken material. A different material if you want to be clever and/or witty).
Round 3 - Nobody
We used this pick to draft Ahmad Brooks in the supplemental draft last year. He is now our MLB.
Round 4 - Marvin White, TCU, S
Apparently this guy is good at tackling and hitting hard. Otherwise I don't know much about him
I don't remember rounds 5-7. I doubt they have much of an impact on the team though. I guess there is a chance that we find another T.J. Houshmasklnsadfibiasfdah (7th round pick), but I doubt it.
So there is my review. Mini-camp and training camp coming soon. Then we can get really excited about how good these guys look in practice.
SUPER BOWL HERE WE COME!!
