Re: Who do you want the Bengals to take?
Everyone has already said it, but the is a skewed poll because two or more of these players will not be available to draft at #9.
I guess the question you are asking is who should the Bengals take if they drafted #1?
How about instead we say:
1. Trade #9 plus our 2d and 4th(or 5th) rounder to go up and get Gholston or Dorsey at 3.
2. Trade our 3rd + a 6th to go up and get Ellis at 6 or 7.
3. Sit tight at 9 and take Clady.
4. Trade down to 15 or 16 and get nothing more than a late 3rd or early 4th to do so.
Personally i would go with option 2.
** Note: Yes, i realize I am making trade ups very cheap, but since every team in the league is trying to trade down, the market has to adjust. Heck, word is that the loser celebrated when they lost the coin flip and had to pick after the other two teams just because of the money they would save.
