I understand your thinking there and I don't totally disagree with you as they do have big fish to fry. My problem is we're dealing with the Bengals here and as we saw, they put Cook into the lineup late in the year even though he hadn't earned it by outplaying Robinson. It'd be like the Pats putting Bledsoe back in after Brady showed his thing or this year with the 49ers and Smith/Kaepernick. In other words, if the Bengals are going to keep Cook at C and we continue to see collapsing pockets like we saw in 2011/12, then I'd argue that C is a priority, ahead of RB and WR to be sure. Just look at what Pouncey did for the Steelers O-line. I'm not a big fan of RBs in the first rd in this day and age, unless it's a Peterson or a Richardson. As for WR, they rarely contribute much as a rookie and we do have Sanu and Jones coming back.
