    and with the 11th pick the Bengals select...
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    Ross is fast as lightning but can’t run routes, has bad hands, and gives up on too many plays.

    Which was the opposite of everything you heard about him coming out of Washington if I remember correctly...leads me to believe it comes back to bad coaching here.

    Just checked his old scouting reports...bad route runner...doesn't like press coverage. Calling it now...bust.

    OT

    WR
    TE

    Or trade up for QB
    The world is a messy place. People are inconsistent and complicated. Maybe we should see how different things could be if we gave grace and forgiveness to our fellow human beings when they fail to be perfect in our eyes. -- me

    #9 player in the draft and after 2 seasons (16 total games) he has 21 catches.
    He had a chance to step it up with both Green and Boyd out and did very little with his opportunity.

    Where is Haskins being mocked?

    I could see Brown being willing to move on from Dalton if it's an OSU guy.

    The difficult thing is that was the QB draft. Mahomes or Watson, either one, both were there. But this franchise was never going to be that aggressive, so it's kind of a moot point. To think they thought they had the luxury of taking a niche WR there instead of something potentially franchise altering ... it's mind boggling.

    Not hindsight either, everyone seemed to dislike that pick.
    “When I use a word,” Trumpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, “it means just what I choose it to mean—neither more nor less.” “The question is,” said Alice, “whether you can make words mean so many different things.” “The question is,” said Trumpty Dumpty, “which is to be master—that’s all.”

    Almost every mock I’ve seen has Haskins to the Jaguars.

    I know this won’t be popular with the Bucknuts, but Haskins has Akili Smith written all over him (one season sample size in college). I’d rather wait until next year (Tua, Fromm) or even 2021 (Lawrence, Fields).

    Haskins is raw and a big risk because of lack of experience. I wouldn't pin my hopes on him becoming a good to great NFL quarterback, but I also wouldn't be surprised.
