Also giving up a 4th and 5th rounder is actually pretty pricey by today's standards. The Bengals' probably look at it, as two picks they don't have to pay, and can stash some money away in the trunk of Mike Brown's 1986 Lumina, when everyone forgets about that, and Hobson will be forced to quote the same rookie pool amount on Bengals.com, as if they drafted in every round.
Although, they'll get compensatory picks this year, so this isn't too much to give up for an average DT ultimately.
DR has been stuck playing NT for the Jets basically clogging the middle. I think he'll look significantly better as a DT in a 4-3. I think alot of others agree as well.
