He said as the final weeks wore down, it became obvious that Austin wasn't going to make it to them, so when SF traded up to gt Ried, they got a little ansty hoping that Chicago wouldn't take Eiffert. Which is probably why the pick was so quickly in after Chicago's pick was drafted, the card was probably ready just in case Chicago missed the clock and the Bengals could slide in front of them (I think that happened w/ the Vikings a few seasons back where several picks went before their alloted pick since Minny didn't get the pick in)
Lap said, if Chicago would have taken Eiffert, the Bengals probably would have taken Sharrif Floyd, the DT out of Florida.
Wow, that's great information. If not for his late rise up draft boards, it is amazing to think about Tavon Austin in a Bengals uni. I'm happy with Eifert, don't get me wrong -- but MAN. AJ + Austin would be impossible for secondaries to try to cover at once.
