1. Miami (0-13)

Interesting they have Steve Slaton going to Cincy. As much as I like Slaton I'd rather have a defensive player that can help out. Though the Bengals will soon be in the need of a RB.

That is just so freakin' messed up that the Pats are going to get McFadden. :angry:

Rooting for the Pats is like rooting for U.S. Steel. :angry:

This guy better be wrong. If the Bengals draft a RB not named McFadden with their first round pick I'm getting my pitchfork and heading to PBS.

Rooting for the Pats is like rooting for U.S. Steel. :angry:

It's like walking into a casino and rooting for the house.

At any rate, I have two big problems with this...

1.) The regular season isn't over for 3 weeks. Give me a break with the mock drafts.

2.) The Bengals spending a top 10 pick on a RB. Ridiculous. Rudi (although I think he's on his way out), K. Watson, K. Irons, Dede Dorsey, and Chris Perry are plenty. If they don't upgrade the D-Line (or, at the very least some aspect of the defense) in some fashion with a top 10 pick, I may end up getting banned from Bengalszone for repeated profanities.

If Sedrick Ellis is on the board, Bengals need to draft him.

And, as a Bucs fan, I'd be on the verge of mutiny if they wasted a pick on Mario Manningham.

Hey CE: Check your PMs please.

Whoever made this Mock Draft is an idiot, why would the Bengals draft another RB, let alone one that has been prone to injury the last few years?

The Bengals will draft one of these:

Ellis (DT - USC)
Gholston (DE - OSU)
Phillips (SS - Miami U)
Campbell (LB or DE i forget - Miami U)
Lauranitis ( LB - OSU)
Conner (LB - PSU)
Long ( DT - Virginia)
Or an O lineman like Clady, Long, Oher or Otah.

Don't think the Falcons will take brohm now.

If the Bengals pick another RB....McFadden MAY be an exception, but he won't be there by the time the Bengals pick, then this teams is THE stupidest team in sports, hands down.

That is just so freakin' messed up that the Pats are going to get McFadden. :angry:
This almost makes me want to root for the 9ers Saturday...just to mess up the Pats pick. It really wouldn't bother me too much if the Bengals lost the rest of their games. The worst would be losing to the 0-15 Dolphins if it came to that. :eek:
