    I've seen him as high as #2 overall.

    No, Rudi was signed through the 2004 season. When a team is 8-8 and one season removed from 2-14, I think they have a lot more pressing needs than drafting to fill out depth at a position of strength. It sounds like if you were in charge, the Bengals would be quite similar to the Bungles of today.

    Should be a top 5 pick, but I'm guessing it will be dependant upon the combine.

    Re: Bengals to Draft Ninth

    Here are the players I expect to be off the board by the Bengals pick:

    Glenn Dorsey
    Darren McFadden
    Chris Long
    Matt Ryan
    Brian Brohm
    Jake Long

    I belive one of these three will be available at 9.

    James Laurinaitis
    Vernon Gholston
    Sedrick Ellis

    I agree, and I'd like to see the Bengals take Ellis first, and either of the Buckeyes second. Keith Rivers or Kenny Phillips would be Plan C.

    And able to walk at the end of the 2005 season, if I remember my facts correctly. That was the same season the team made the playoffs, Perry comes up lame late in the season, his return is uncertain, so they end up buckling and giving the contract to Rudi. I think the Bengals were of a mind to let Rudi walk, but Perry's injury squashed that idea. Again, despite your attempt at tit-for-tat, the fact remains that does not fit the definition of a "squandered" pick with that type of very likely gameplan. And that handwriting was written very clearly on the wall with the pick, in my most humble, honest opinion .

    I think Linebacker is a luxury pick in the first round for this team. The pick must be a DT or DE, imo. You can pick up a linebacker in lower rounds. Maybe not a physical freak, but a player nonetheless.
    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.

    Re: Bengals to Draft Ninth

    If I had to do a mock(simulation coin flip included) before the Bengals pick, this would be it:

    1.Miami:Glenn Dorsey
    2.St Louis:Jake Long
    3.Atlantaarren McFadden
    4.Oakland:Chris Long
    5.Kansas City:Matt Ryan
    6.New York:Chris Long
    7.New England:James Laurianitis
    8.Baltimore:Brian Brohm

    I'm starting to like Keith Rivers the more and more I read. That being said, Miami is the real wild card, because Parcells likes to wheel and deal during the draft and Miami has a lot of needs. Take your pick.

    Just for @#$%'@ and giggles, what would the Bengals have to relinquish to get Miami's draft pick?

    Whether he comes from the draft or free agency, the D will not be any good again unless they have an impact DL and an impact LBer. The front 7 has been running on support guys for most of Marvin's tenure, starting with the walking of Spikes, and when was the last time the Bengals had an impact Dlineman? He did draft two potential impact LBers in Thurmond and Pollack, but we got one above average season out of one and the other we hardly knew.

    Nope, I just thought your criticism in the Browns game was misplaced because he actually had a really good game, yet you called him out. Of course, you also criticized the front 7 in that game, which is one they actually did pretty well, hence the win and 4 picks.

    Re: Bengals to Draft Ninth

    From a Browns fan, sitting at 9 your best bet is to take Sedrick Ellis, or if hes gone Calais Campbell. Gholston is also considered a Top 10 pick at would be great as a DE for you guys.

    Ellis I love. Gholston I like. I want no part of Calais Campbell, especially at #9.
