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.
Peter King is in the loop with the Bengals. He has been for years. He covered the team for six seasons, back in the eighties for the Enquirer. As far as the Bengals playing it close to the vest, I would say no, they typically have a predraft tv special, and they pretty much reveal their draftboard. Dave Lapham also knows what is going on and when he starts talking, he is revealing what is going on behind closed doors at PBS. Happens pretty much every year.
