    So looking at FA, what holes could they address with 33 or if they move up or down?

    I still say LB even with Bynes on board. If Queen or Murray are available.

    Walter Football has Dye going #72. We have the 67th pick. April 24th is going to be an exciting day as I see us adding three potential starters.

    the head a pile of times, and your brain development gets stunted, and even breaks the good things that did happen, and the combination creates a lot of negative consequences.

    Itís hard to accurately peg where each of the direct reasons lie for the Chris Henry story, and where in each category we want to blame. Maybe a combo of born with low iq, unfortunate life experiences, low educational opportunities during formative years, and CTE.

    Ultimately when you see the same issues over and over, even when the person seems to understand itís wrong - they have my sympathy, as it just seems the guy didnít have the fundamental life skills as a well adjusted adult should have. It sucks for everyone involved, and I canít begin to pretend I lived a day in the life in his shoes to understand why it all happened and why he couldnít dig himself out of it.

    I do know that itís really easy for people like you to spot down on people like that - and I find your motivations for having this schtick as sad as any of it.

    It would make the most sense if they traded the pick late on the 23rd or before rd 2 starts on the 24th. That's when other teams can see who fell to the 2nd rd

    Zac Attack seems to be leaving his mark on the franchise.

    Maybe I was wrong about the guy. Here's hoping he is more Jimmy Johnson than Dave Shula.

    The secret plan: Drew Sample as H-Back.

    Can't be any worse than Drew Sample at TE.

    Maybe during goal line situations...

    Those Top-8 are excellent, though, with two of them Cornerbacks.

    Re: 2020 Cincinnati Bengals

    I like the idea of taking an OT with next year's 1st Rd pick. That's a better quality Tackle than anything we can get this season.

    Maybe Iím optimistic, but I havenít given up hope on Sample yet.

    TEs usually take two years to take off. He kinda reminds me of George Kittle in that regard.

    Definitely haven't given up. The bad OL skewed most everything.

    Local tv station reports that NE has no interest in Dalton, that they will go with some 4th rounder.

    So it's a variation on the McCarron snafu. They will get zip for Dalton.

    Because they are not in the business of making other teams better.

    Re: 2020 Cincinnati Bengals

    It's OK. They have until mid-season next year to move Atkins, Green, Dalton and Dunlap in order to acquire draft picks and/or younger and cheaper players to grow with Burrow. Any acquired picks for 2021 can be used to move up and grab the best and HOF potential, Penei Sewell, Left Tackle and 2019 Outland Trophy and Co-Pac-12 Offensive POY.

    These are the other five finalists whom he beat out for the reward:

    Wisconsin center Tyler Biadasz, Auburn defensive tackle Derrick Brown, Clemson guard John Simpson, Georgia offensive tackle Andrew Thomas and Iowa offensive tackle Tristan Wirfs.

    His Sophomore season grade was Pro Football Focus' highest grade in their entire history for an Offensive Lineman.
