    Two guys that should be the short list for the Bengals first round pick next year

    Some of the College Football awards were presented yesterday:

    http://nbcsports.msnbc.com/id/28182973/

    All-American team:
    Joining Colt McCoy on the Walter Camp All-American team were running backs Greene (Iowa) and Javon Ringer (Michigan State); wide receivers Crabtree (Texas Tech) and Dez Bryant (Oklahoma State); tight end Chase Coffman (Missouri); and offensive linemen Michael Oher (Mississippi), Andre Smith (Alabama), Duke Robinson (Oklahoma), Rylan Reed (Texas Tech) and A.Q. Shipley (Penn State).

    MAXWELL AWARD (Best player)
    Tim Tebow, Florida

    WALTER CAMP (Best player)
    Colt McCoy, Texas

    O'BRIEN AWARD (Top QB)
    Sam Bradford, Oklahoma

    If our pick is not Smith or Oher, I would not be surprised knowing Mikey-boy, but I would be extremely disappointed...

    I like Smith, but he is only 6'4" as he slows a little with age, he will have to move to guard. My pick would be Oher. Long arms and ideal size.
    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.

    If that happens, I am done.

    My guess is Matt Stafford will be the first pick by Detroit. I don't see Kitna, Orlovsky, Stanton, or Henson doing anything anytime soon. If KC finishes with a worse record than us, they could take one of the O-Lineman.

    Michael Johnson would be an intriguing option at DE. As long as its O-Line and D-Line, thats all that matters. I would call it a great draft if the Bengals took O-Line with their picks in all three rounds.

    i agree 100% they need to concentrate on help for both sides of the line (from both the draft and FA's) more than anything else. unfortunately they need a new gm that would actually do that.

    I'm sorry, but I want Rey Maualuga. I LOVE HIS GAME.

    Maualuga is a good one.

    But he's no Aaron Curry.

    Anyone else think there is a really good chance we just trade down and stockpile early picks?

    The Bengals don't know how to do that. They are too stupid to be that creative.

    I am with ya there that guy is awesome. I'd be almost as happy with Laurinaitis which I should really slap myself for saying. But Rey conjures up visions of our own Polamalu but at LB, like him or not Polamalu is a beast. That said I kinda expect Stacy Andrews to be re-signed with Levi on the left side, Collins be the 1st off the bench and Whitworth and Williams right back at guards. Ghiacuic is the only one I see being potentially replaced, any good FA centers on the market coming up? If not I believe there is one that could be drafted at the top of the 2nd or earlier. I think we go defense unless they don't re-sign Andrews. And LB is just as good a spot as any to pick from, it's got some nice upper tier prospects this year. I don't see them taking Beanie he get's dinged too much for a team with it's injury issues.

    I wonder if we gain any additional compensatory picks for Justin Smith and Madieu Williams. I know we signed Odom but he's done nothing and I thought they base comp picks off of balancing performance of those lost with those gained in the previous FA.

    What I'd do
    1st Rd - Rey Maualuga OLB
    2nd Rd - Alex Mack OC Cal

    I predict it will look like this come draft day:

    1 - Detroit - Matt Stafford QB - GA
    2 - Seattle - Andre Smith OT - AL
    3 - Cincinnati - Rey Maualuga LB - USC
    4 - St. Louis - Malcolm Jenkins CB/S - TOSU
    5 - Oakland - Michael Crabtree WR - TT
    6 - Cle. - Chris Wells RB - TOSU
    7 - Jax - Jeremy Maclin WR - Mizzo
    8 - KC - Aaron Curry OLB - Ga. Tech
    9 - S.F. - Sam Bradford QB - OK
    10 - Buff - Micheal Oher OT - Miss

    Beanie a Brown? Yuck!!!! That makes my stomach turn. Anywhere but Cleveland.

    I wouldn't mind Maulaga + he'll probably get along with Rivers.

    I like Maulaga, but I don't think he fills a need.

    If I had to project the top 10, here would be my guess:

    1.Detroit-Matt Stafford(QB-Georgia)
    2.Cincinnati-Michael Oher(OT-Ole Miss)
    3.Kansas City-Andre Smith(OT-Alabama)
    4.Seattle-Michael Crabtree(WR-Texas Tech)
    5.St Louis-Vontae Davis(DB-Illinois)
    6.San Francisco-Sam Bradford(QB-Oklahoma)
    7.Oakland-Michael Johnson(DE-Georgia Tech)
    8.San Diego-Rey Mauluga(LB-USC)
    9.Jacksonville-Malcolm Jenkins(DB-Ohio St)
    *10.Cleveland-Knoshown Moreno(RB-Georgia)

    FWIW, I believe Cleveland will hire Marty Schottenheimer. Moreno strikes me as being a better fit for Martyball than Beanie, more as an LT-lite.

    So you think Chris Wells is coming back to school for his senior year?
