    Mays is an interesting guy (LB size, CB speed) but with the Bengals luck he'll end up being more like Ohalete instead of Polamalu or Reed.

    Everyone I know who's seen him in person numerous times says he not only isn't worthy of a 1st Round pick, but that he's someone you don't even want on your team. He's just not that good. He sucks at lateral movement and backpedaling and can't cover anyone one-on-one.

    He ran it "forward". (then the "official time" was changed to 4.40)

    But, it doesn't matter what he ran "forward". He can't run laterally or backpedal and can't play man-coverage.

    Should the Bengals give up a 1st round pick for Brandon Marshall?

    Performance, I think he is better than any of the Bengals options in the first round. His attitude and the fact that receivers we have brought in havent lived up to expectations (Coles) could be a major drawback.

    If they could afford it, I wouldn't mind seeing the Bengals give up a 1st rd pick for Marshall and a 2nd rd pick for Leon Washington. How much would THAT improve the offense and kick returns?

    Interesting. I heard Mel talking about him being a winner from the combine. I mean really? Guy put up insane numbers that pretty much everyone predicted. But Mel also said that his limitations could have been the USC system. They had him play a very deep CF on most plays. This may cause him to take bad routes from time to time and guy did go for the kill shot quite a bit (Roy Williams comes to mind). The reason I like Mays is he is as athletically gifted as they come and would be an inforcer in the defensive back field. If he cant play safety they have the opportunity to move him to LB.

    Bengals just cut Laverneous Coles.

    Hopefully that means either Anquan Boldin or Brandon Marshall is coming to town, or else look for a WR in the first round of the draft. Maybe the two aren't mutually exclusive?

    Probably the best decision when you consider how much money he was making compared to the production they got from him.

    We essentially got nothing for Coles. Another year of seasoning for our young WRs will do wonders. Cutting Coles makes us a better team IMO... with all of his drops. I don't see any reason that we must draft WR in the first round, or trade a top pick for Marshall/Boldin.

    So, who exactly do you see catching passes next year if they don't draft a WR or sign a free agent?

    Re: Who should the Bengals draft in the first round?

    I don't usally advocate these types of deals but I do think it's time to sign/trade for an impact player on either side of the ball. And since we have an opening at WR I think Brandon Marshall should be the target. And I would consider strongly signing a sure handed TE who is at least an able blocker. I do however love this draft the more I look at it the more I think we come away smelling like a rose either way (keeping the pick or dealing it). If you are gonna trade for Marshall it is probably wise financially speaking to trade the 1st rounder for him. Assuming you think you can do well in the 2nd drafting someone who can make a difference defensively.

    I'm going to guess they go offensive line in the 1st round.
