    Outside of Cincinnati and Detroit, none of the teams listed need a running back. The two above have more pressing needs as well.

    I have Seattle taking Crabtree but I look for Oakland to move up to try and get him. The Raiders need a top receiver and the combination of JaMarcus Russell, Darren McFadden, and Michael Crabtree could be pretty explosive if managed right.

    I think the Bengals need to draft a lineman, either smith or Oher because running backs are usually not very good with poor offensive linemen in front of them. It is easier to pickup a suitable free agent running back than to draft one high in the draft IMO.
    Baseball is not necessarily an obsessive-compulsive disorder, like washing your hands 100 times a day, but it's beginning to seem that way. We're reaching the point where you can be a truly dedicated, state-of-the-art fan or you can have a life. Take your pick. ~Thomas Boswell

    Having a life is overrated.

    That's pretty much widely accepted around the NFL except from our boy, Mikey Brown. I'm not looking forward to him screwing up the draft again.

    OL, DL, C should be the first 3 picks. It's obvious.

    Oher won't grade out quite as well as Smith. I know a few UF players who played them both this year and the consensus is that Smith is the better player, although both are fine lineman.

    What probably will happen is the Bengals will pick 2nd and take Smith, which would be fine with me. However, a more ideal scenario would see us trading down, somewhere between 6-10, stockpiling a few more picks and taking an Oher or Maulauga. Because we are indeed the Bengals and the second scenario makes a ton of sense, it simply will never happen.
