    Re: 2007 NFL Draft

    Over the last 5 years or so I have learned that Dave Lapham should be listened to heading up to the draft. He doesn't say that the Bengals are going to draft so and so. What he does do is bring up names that end either getting picked by Cincy or are actually their most desired player. This morning he was on Sunday Morning Sportstalk, on WLW. He talked about Landry the SS from LSU, being a good first pick that the Bengals would love to have but probably won't get, and that Zach Miller the TE from Arizona State would be a good second round pick. The other thing though was that he talked about Ted Ginn Jr alot as a reciever to stretch the field while Henry is on suspension, and how good of a kick returner he is. I worry that they would actually take Ginn as a wide reciever.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    The Bengals should take Ginn if he's there. They badly need a special teams playmaker and he's going to be a damn good WR. He's got great hands and he's still got a ton of room to grow. I'd say with only 3 years experience at the FL position he has shown he will be a damn good one at the next level.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    I "eagerly" await my Tampa Bay Buccaneers drafting Calvin Johnson so that Jeff Garcia can have a great WR to underthrow this season.

    Re: 2007 NFL Draft

    As a Bengals fan, my dream scenerio would be Patrick Willis, but I don't see him getting past Buffalo. That said, outside of a trade down (unlikely) I would target Reggie Nelson with pick #18. I think he is the type of ball hawking FS that has the potential to turn into a special player.

    The knock on Nelson is his size, the Bengals scheme doesn't call for a Free or Strong Safety. They require both players to be adequate in both run support and pass coverage. That is why the safety position has been a train wreck for several years. Lack of depth, Kevin Kaesverharn couldn't tackle anyone, when he was called on, decent cover guy, zero contribution in run support.

    I liked Keith Jackson during the season, what is his wrap?

    I think this is a draft where you really can't go wrong if you take Willis, Branch, or one of the three corners.

    I have the Bills taking Marshawn Lynch given the McGahee trade, but they could opt for Willis.

    Re: 2007 NFL Draft

    Word on the street is Branch has stress fractures in both of his legs. If true, he may fall out of the first round. I like the Bengals to take the best DB available between Leon Hall, Darelle Revis, and Reggie Nelson in the 1st round.

    In the 2nd round, I really want David Harris, the MLB from Michigan, but I'd take Justin Harrell (DT-Tennessee) as a consolation.

    Taking Ginn in the 1st round would be the Jim Bowden move- adding more extraneous offense while ignoring defense (pitching). In other words, I wouldn't like it.

    Completely agree on all counts. If the Bengals draft Ginn in the first round and ignore the defensive side of the ball, they're clueless.

    I think the real interesting thing to watch will be how many defensive players are gone before #18. If there is a large run on defensive players, I'm not sure Marvin and the Bengals won't take the top rated player on their board, offense or defense. If they feel drafting a guy like Branch at #18 is a reach based on their percieved value of him, I could see them taking a Jarrett, Ginn, OL, or TE.

    Just think, the offense is one injury away from having Chatman or Tab Perry as a #2 receiver for at least half of next year.

    Maybe the Bengals can take Steve Breaston in the fourth round or something.

    You don't pass up on elite level playmakers because you want a Leon Hall type CB. The few times he got tested by elite talent he got DOMINATED. He's not got great top speed and he doesn't have great hips.
    At the Bengals slot I'm hoping for Nelson, Harrell, Ginn, or Moss.

    I agree re: Leon Hall's shortcomings, but I don't think it will matter because i think he will be gone by 18. I really want Revis or Nelson. When it comes to the Bengals, I actually don't have a Michigan bias (I was disgusted when we took Chris Perry over Stephen Jackson in '04), I just think Harris will not only be the best pro of this year's Wolvernes, but he's the best fit for the Bengals as well. I think Harrell and Moss would both be reaches at 18- I'd rather hope for one of them to fall to us in the second round. Like I said before, Ginn is a Bowden pick.
    Go BLUE!!!

    I was lobbying for the Bengals to pass on Chris Gamble when they took Chris Perry, so that shows how much I know.

    However, the last thing the Bengals need right now on day one is offense, especially at wideout. If the Bengals draft Ginn, then once Henry gets back, Ginn becomes the fourth wideout. Not to mention the first round is WAY too high to draft a special teams player.

    Anything that isnt a linebacker, defensive back, or defensive lineman will be a sure disappointment.
