    If Bengals want him, pretty sure they have to trade up from #33.

    Probably - altho maybe the late helium for Aiyuk will push mims back to 33. So much misdirection on top of the teams not at their facilities makes this even more guesswork than usual.
    Well, that's what those words mean. He was here. If they don't keep him, he will have been lost/subtracted. I headed out the door today with two shoes on my feet. If I don't return with them, I have lost them. If I do return with them, I haven't added them. ---M2

    I used PFF's mock draft simulator with needs and pff grades taken into account, along with trades. Carolina offered to trade when a QB they were interested in was there in the 4th and I got the player I wanted in the 4th anyway, in addition to their 2nd Rd pick from next season.

    I received Carolina's 2nd Rd pick next year, the Guard I wanted, the EDGE player I wanted, two WR's to battle and grow and play ST's and a LB to play ST's andcompete for snaps with the LB group. Throckmorton is very good. Best value pick in the draft.

    I use our 1st, our 2nd and Carolina's 2nd next season to move up and Take a once-in-a-decade LT from Oregon to protect Burrow's blindside for the rest of his career. Our 1st Rd pick from last year moves to RT in 2021.

    You may want to read up on Jennings - he was timed with a sun dial.

    The Bengals led the NFL last season in 11-man personnel (1TE, 1RB). With last year's 2nd Rd pick being a block-first TE, the Bengals needed a Slot Receiver who is a great target for a young Quarterback and who can help move the chains and act as a safety valve for the inexperienced QB. That player is Jennings.

    From PFF:

    Jauan Jennings, Tennessee

    "In a class that features upward of five first-round-type talents at wide receiver all with dynamic athletic profiles, it was actually Jennings who led the entire country last season in broken tackles. He broke a ridiculous 30 tackles on only 59 catches last season — four more than any other receiver in the country. His balance and ability to slip free from defenders is second to none in the draft class. Unfortunately, he is limited athletically and ran only a 4.72 40-yard dash at the Combine. Still, Jennings can fill the big-slot role in an offense and turn underneath targets into first-downs routinely."

    Jennings highlights...from just one game.


    Jennings earlier in the NFL Draft participated in the Senior Bowl, where he got the chance to perform in front of NFL personnel in practices and caught a touchdown pass in the game.

    “He’s wired differently than most wide receivers from a mental standpoint in terms of kind of having that edge to his personality,” Senior Bowl executive director and long-time NFL scout Jim Nagy said in January. “So good with his hands and so good after the catch in terms of broken tackles and forcing guys to tackle him. Like, you have to tackle Jauan Jennings. He makes you (tackle him), you’ve got to wrap up and tackle that guy. He’s different than anyone in this group. He’s different than anyone else in this draft.

    “If you want like a tone-setter attitude and a guy that can work the middle of the field and underneath stuff and be that true possession guy, I think he could get on the field next year and catch a bunch of balls, because there’s just so few guys like him. You know he’s going to play on fourth down. You know he’s going to be a core special-teams player, and then if he’s that, you’re going to find a way to get him in packages at receiver as well."

    They already employ Auden Tate and Tyler Boyd.

    Good. Burrow needs a lot of young targets.

    Jennings does what they do only he does it slower. There are 40 receivers who should go ahead of him.

    Nobody does what Jennings does, note the bold print AND the comments from long-time NFL scout Jim Nagy.

    We've seen enough of "combine" players, the Hunt's, Ogbuehi's and Kirkpatrick's. Bengals want players now who can tackle on Defense and block and break tackles on Offense.

    But there are going to be WRs at the top of the 3rd who can break tackles and are also faster than TEs. The Bengals need speed. Burrow's elite accuracy is perfect for getting the ball into a guy's hands and letting him take off. Theoretically John Ross could be amazing with Burrow, but I think we're all skeptical there.

    Not saying Johnson won't be a decent player, but the Bengals need an outside receiver, and that's not Jennings unless he picks up .2 seconds on his 40

    Should have added Ross as classic "combine" player....great speed, but can't play worth a lick because he can't practice or stay on the field. Know any other Bengals' 1st, 2nd and 3rd Round picks that can't practice or stay on the field? The list is longer than those who can. Need to go another direction.

    PFF's analysis:
    8. CALVIN THROCKMORTON, OREGON
    Draft Board Rank: 87th
    Throckmorton is the first convert on this list, although calling him a tackle is not giving him nearly enough credit. Throckmorton has taken at least one snap at every single position along the offensive line (he took literally one at left guard in 2016) in his four years as a starter at Oregon. Even with him flip-flopping positions as needed in each of the past three years, Throckmorton earned pass-blocking grades of 89.5, 87.4, and 90.2, respectively, over that span. He's built like a cinder block with excellent natural leverage. While he doesn't have the quicks or length you want from a tackle, Throckmorton is one of the best linemen in the country at sustaining blocks once engaged.





    Ranked 87th on PFF's board, I got him at 113 on their simulator.
