    Mock Drafts

    Of the 12 mock drafts that I sampled the consensus out there is that we will take Ellis with the 9th pick.

    Ellis appeared 6 times.
    Gholsten appeared twice.
    Connor appeared 3 times.
    Campbell appeared once.

    Mock drafts are cool to look at, but most of the time after the first three or four picks they end up being way off target. However I would be happy with anyone of the four though.
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    Never draft Lb's early in the draft. This pick should be someone who puts his hand on the ground on all downs. No questions asked.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    Ellis is a freak and I would love to have him on our line.

    I agree unless an Urlacher happens to come around (which isn't the case this year).

    My issue with the Bengals if they draft a tackle, is that they'll let someone like Whitworth go as soon as his contract comes up, as a result. So instead of building an improved and deep o-line, they basically stay about the same or become worse, because their strict salary cap philosophy is the worst in the business and has ruined them since free agency and the cap took over.

    Eh, I just don't have any hope for this franchise no matter what they do, but, you have to keep calling them out at least.

    Personally I would go for Campbell or Gholston, the one thing the Bengals have lacked for years has been a consistent pass rush from off the edge. Both of these guys would provide that. It really got frustrating watching the opposing quaterback have all day back their. Honestly when is the last time the Bengals had a dominant pass rusher that teams feared.

    I disagree. Urlacher, who was a S in college, has been a very solid pick. A guy like Partic Willis would look great as a bengal and he came from a similar spot to where the benglas pick. IMO that a DT is a far riskier pick than a LB especially high in the draft.

    Sure it's less risky. The problem is that a LB like Patrick Willis becomes virtually a waste without a productive Dline in front of him. The Bengals drafting a LB right now would not turn this defense around. Mike Brown tried that route with Takeo Spikes and Brian Simmons and it failed miserably. The Bengals MUST get a play maker at DE and somehow get help in the interior of the Dline. Without that you are just wasting talent behind it.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    The 49ers have a productive D line?

    Yep. At this time last year everybody and their brother had us taking Amobe Okoye with the 18th pick. Yet, after a solid combine and the help of the media's hype machine, Okoye went 10th overall to the Texans.

    Basically, I like to use mock drafts to learn about players I never followed in college football. Some sites give excellent information concerning strengths, weaknesses, character, etc., but I put little to no stock into where they have each player going.

    Re: Mock Drafts

    My wife and her family are huge Missouri fans so I got to see them play quite a bit last year. I was very impressed with TE Martin Rucker. I would like to see him wearing Orange and Black later this year. It looks like he's being projected as a 2nd round pick. I was hoping they could get him in round 3, but I doubt he lasts that long. I still think the Bengals need defense in the 2nd round, but if Rucker is there he'd solve the Bengals perpetual problem of not having a pass-catching TE. He's good. Really good. What do you do?

    After the top 10 it gets exponentially harder to predict. So many what ifs are in involved

    Re: Mock Drafts

    The latest Yahoo mock has the following:

    9. Cincinnati (7-9)
    The Pick: Kenny Phillips, FS, Miami*
    The buzz: The Bengals defense gives up too many big passes, and Marvin Lewis needs a playmaker at free safety.
    For what its worth Gholston and Ellis were both off the board and Rivers went a pick later. Any thoughts?
