Hall of Famers abound? Since the Bengals entered the league in 1968 only six guards drafted have made the hall. Three were off the board before the Bengals even picked, one slid to the third round so everyone missed on that one, and they passed on one to pick Isaac Curtis, who worked out pretty well. The only real screwup was taking Rickey Dixon (ugh) at #5 in 1988 when Randall McDaniel went at #19. The Bengals have made their share of draft mistakes, but I can't get too upset about the lack of first round guards.
