    From where I'm sitting, they could have taken Doss and gone after someone like John Clay, who wasn't drafted, later to fill the battering-Ram role. But, as you stated, it's difficult to second guess Polian, and the receiving corp should benefit from the return of Clark and Gonzalez.

    Still, plenty to smile about.
    I was hoping they would take Doss as well, I think he would be been a good solid fill in for when Anthony Gonzalez gets hurt on the third play of the season. I think Doss would have been a plus on special teams as well.

    Hopefully getting the two offensive linemen will help the short game running along with the bowling ball running back. Hopefully they get Kevin Thomas back in the secondary and they stay relatively healthy and make a run next year.

    I'm a Kentucky fan, but Locke is going to have problems, especially if the spine injury reports are true. In addition to injuries, he's undersized for a NFL RB. He's in the same boat as Noel Devine from West Virginia, and Devine was more heralded coming out of high school. It's funny how eerily similar careers the two have had.

    None of this is news. It's precisely why he wasn't drafted.

    Hence why you bring him in as an UFA.

    It's unquestionable that he has been electric when healthy. Will he ever be that player again? Who knows.

    I was only joking about the red head thing, didn't someone come out in Sports Illustrated and say that?

    I'm bummed that OSU's Cam Heyward got drafted by the Steelers.

    Great career with my Buckeyes and now I'm going to have to hate him as a Steeler. Great pick by them, I'm sure he'll fit in well with their defense.

    Bah.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    Too bad how that works. I had to do the same thing with RB Jamal Lewis and the Ravens

    A little late but great draft by the Bengals. I think Dalton will end up being the best QB out of this class and we know Green is going to get the job done asap.

    I think it was a good draft and if it is then it'll be two really good drafts back to back. Last year was not rated so good in May but a year later it looks to be excellent. String some good drafts together and we may have something

    The Bengals can usually have great drafts like this, it's a matter of developing the players they draft.

    It's easy to call it a win right now, but with Mike Brown's stamp on this organization and the other "great drafts" that have fallen apart, especially under Lewis's tenure, I'm waiting before rushing to judgment.
