Peter King is tied in on what the Bengals are thinking. So that means the Bengals are probably looking at Wide Receiver, Corner, or Defensive Line at #4. I lost the link, but I got it from Lance McCallister's blog.
Can we just change this thread to "2011 NFL Draft Discussion Thread"
I don't know how tuned in with the Bengals King is. He is often very critical of the franchise but I don't think anyone is really tuned in with the Bengals. They operate very close to the vest.
I don't like the idea of going WR #4, actually I hate it. The number of WR's that can change the game by themselves is very very limited. While I think AJ Green is a great talent, I would rather go with defense or OLine. Since no OLine guys screams out I want D.
That said if Gabbert or Newton slip to #4 I don't see how the Bengals don't take one of them. I also think sitting in the early 2nd round is a good spot for the Bengals to be. I would be fine in the 2nd with Locker, Mallet, or even Dalton.
