    Re: 2017 Bengals Off-season

    Highly doubt Jonathan Allen is there at 9. Or even Solomon Thomas. In that case, I'd go...

    Malik Hooker (not a huge need, as mentioned before, but dude's a gamer)
    Reuben Foster
    Corey Davis
    Mike Williams
    Derek Barnett

    Depending on the CB situation, I'd also strongly consider Tabor and his Florida teammate, Wilson. I really like Tim Williams from Alabama, but I think he's better suited as a 3-4 OLB than as a full-time 4-3 DE. Curious to see where his weight is at the combine. Jordan Willis and Tanoh Kpassagnon are two pass rushers I'd look at in the 3rd.

    New mock draft:

    1. Malik Hooker, S, Ohio State
    2. Jarrad Davis, LB, Florida
    3. Jordan Willis, DE, Kansas State
    4. Marlon Mack, RB, USF (seriously, look at this guy's tape...I wouldn't mind drafting him in the 2nd)
    4. Malachi Dupree, WR, LSU
    5. Isaac Asiata, G, Utah
    5. Noah Brown, WR, Ohio State (or possibly Amba Etta-Tawo - that guy's got some hands)
    6. Conor McDermott, OT, UCLA
    6. Dwayne Thomas, CB, LSU
    7. Zane Gonzalez, K, Arizona State (I've actually heard he might go a lot earlier)

    I don't think Burkhead is the answer.

In reality, it was a one-year contract for $5m (with only $1.5m guaranteed) with a 4-year $40m option. Beachum has already been released. Meanwhile the Bengals only get a 4th round pick for losing Marvin Jones, whose contract was $20m guaranteed. Jones' 2016 cap hit was also larger than Beachum's ($6.6m to $5.3m).
    This sort of thing is why some of us say the NFL looks rigged at times.

    He looked a lot different running behind the exact same line as Jeremy Hill. Says a lot.

    I don't think he will re-sign to be honest. Im very leery of guys who look good once the season is basically over.

    It's a good draft for RB, I don't want another year of Bernard/Hill, time to move on.

    Just thought of this. Burkhead played RB late in the season, he really didn't start getting carries until week 12, and saw his workload increase as the season went along. Burkhead was fresh at the time and running hard, he wasn't a guy who saw 10 weeks of action prior to week 12, 10 weeks of pounding, he was a guy who saw minimal pounding in the early part of the season.

    Wednesday is the franchise-tag deadline. Whitworth is a possibility. Zeitler seems long-gone once they decided to sign Boling long-term.

    Two days left to get one of them signed or it's bye-bye. Too strong of a market for those two player's Top-of-their-Position skillsets.

    Marvin said that every position is in play but Quarterback in the 1st Rd for them. Always the insightful one.

    Re: 2017 Bengals Off-season

    Optimism is fine. Just remember who you are rooting for. Marvin "0-7" Lewis is still here. Free Agency is still avoided like the plague. For the 2nd year in a row, we are about to let go quality Free Agents while keeping around and overpaying crappy ones (last year it was Nugent, Peko, Maualuga, Hunt, MJ) without quality replacements to take their place.

    A hundred Bengals fans comment on their frustrations of being a Bengals' fan. The disaster and failure of 2017 has already begun with the retention of Lewis and Zampese (Dumb & Dumber). It continues Wednesday with the decision on how they'll use the franchise-tag (unbelievably used it on a bad kicker once...remarkable).

    One day left and no word on the Bengals using the franchise tag or a tender on anyone, including no signs of them agreeing to a deal with one of their impending Free Agents.

    Hobson with his yearly claim towards the end of this column that the Bengals have a fraction of the cap room to work with that every outlet reports they have.

    Zeitler is expected to get 10 mil per season. Sorry but you need to be playing Tackle for that kind of money. Guards are fairly easy to find in the draft. Loved Zeitler but he has priced himself out most markets.

    All rumors report to Andre Smith coming back, which I would be onboard with. On the other side, Whit is a must sign...

    I don't mind having the overall philosophy of not investing too much on guards. But if that's the case, don't use first round picks on one.

    Andre Smith was horrible his last year here. He couldn't beat out Phil Loadholdt in camp before Loadholdt retired opening the door for Smith to win the job. Then he couldn't beat out T.J. Clemmings, who has been terrible since being drafted. He's available because he failed miserably in Minnesota at a position the Vikings have no incumbent for Smith to have to take the job from.

    Andre Smith's decent playing days are years behind him.
