    2011 NFL Draft

    Does anyone know if a date has been set for this yet? I can't seem to find it anywhere. I'm wondering if labor unrest has prevented them from setting a date yet. Their normal April weekend is Easter this year. I don't know if that's a problem for them or not

    I swear I'm going to flip out if the Bengals draft AJ Green.
    That hit was plenty fair. Atleast by a quarter of an inch.

    Despite the emergences of Dunlap, Johnson and Atkins I bet they go DaQuan Bowers if available. Bowers and Johnson on the ends, Dunlap inside to take over for Tank, next to Peko and Atkins in for Peko on passing downs. Just my gut, which means they will probably go with Cam Newton.

    Why?

    I believe the draft is April 28-30. My order of preference for the Bengals goes like this:

    1. Andrew Luck QB (will need more than "luck" for him to be available, although the Bengals have traded for the #1 pick with Carolina before)
    2. Da'Quan Bowers DE
    3. AJ Green WR
    4. Nick Fairley DT
    5. Robert Quinn DE

    In the 2nd round, I'd like to see them take the best OL or S on the board.
    Go BLUE!!!

    I think the #1 pick will be available -- especially if no CBA has been signed with a rookie salary system by the date of the draft. I highly doubt Luck is going to CAR. My guess is that whoever is hired as their next head coach will get the gig by saying the magic words to ownership "I can win with Jimmy Clausen." That means no Luck for CAR.

    Having said that, I think the Bengals would be wiser to concentrate on solving their issues up front on the O-Line and D-Line before moving into the QB search phase.

    I think it's a six/half-dozen situation with respect to the pick. First, let's hypothesize that Carolina's new coach, whoever it ends up being, thinks Clausen can play. If not, the discussion's a moot point. But let's say the Panthers like Andrew Luck but don't have to have him. If there's no CBA with a rookie scale, then sure, they'd probably rather deal the pick than stroke a $50 million check. But very few teams are willing to trade up for the privilege of writing that check. Now, let's suppose the new CBA gets done and there's a rookie scale. Suddenly, the Panthers could easily afford Luck -- and so could everyone else. Bidding war, anyone? No telling what kind of haul they could get for the pick in that instance.

    WR is the most overrated position in the NFL. Sure, it's nice to have a big target that can stretch the field, but it's still an overrated position. The game is won and lost in the trenches. Give your QB some time, he'll eventually find somebody open (Andre Johnson or Quan Cosby). Considering there's no O-Lineman worthy of the #4 overall pick (Thanks Andre Smith), I'd take Bowers or hope somebody gets desperate and is willing to trade up (unlikely given this year's overall draft class).
    That hit was plenty fair. Atleast by a quarter of an inch.

    Why? If he's the best athlete on the board, then why not? He's an excellent WR and someone who I think will be an excellent pro.

    With that said, I think there will be better options with Bowers and Fairley.

    The dates of the 2011 draft with a mock draft to boot.
    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.

    If the Bengals lose one of their CBs to free agency then the pick has to be Peterson

    I disagree. Cornerback is an overrated position in the league along with WR. Look at the top defenses in the league and think about the cornerbacks on their team. Pittsburgh has never had a 'great' CB and yet, they consistently remain one of the best defenses in the league. If you generate a pass rush, you don't need great corners.

    Disagree. Some of the great defenses in recent history had a great secondary or a great defender. The Jets D was great last season because of Revis. The Pats of a few years ago had a great D because of Ty Law. Those two players were able to shut down the opponent's best player. The Ravens and their great D had both Reed and McAllister in their secondary and even though he isn't a CB Polamalu makes the Steelers go.
