I don’t know that he will ever justify being a second round pick but I still hold plenty of hope that he is a significant piece of the tight end room puzzle.
    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'd take Josiah Deguara in the 4th-5th. Tight end is lower priority, though.

    Really hard for me to think TE before sixth if at all.

Free Agency gets to better the team without costing the team anything as far as personnel. They clearly aren't even done and they have gone far beyond anyone in the football world's imagination.
    The Bengals would be wise to trade the #33 pick for a number of OL. If they do that and somehow trade for bonafide LB who will actually make a huge impact on this team, then I'll take this "change of tune" more seriously. Out of all their signings, Reader was their best but it's a position that we already have strength at.

    Yes. But, that was before several other signings that addressed the Defense, including a quality LB and a Quality SS that moves Shawn Williams to a hybrid SS/LB position. Still think they might be able to get the LB I want in Dye by trading down from 33, grabbing an extra 3rd (late likely) and taking the best Offensive player (from those they are targeting) with their new 2nd Round pick. I said before that Dye wouldn't last past 45, but his combine numbers might be weak, and that would push him into the 3rd Rd (even though he is PFF's 4th-rated LB and #1-rated tackler, whom they say has been an outstanding tackler every year in College...put him on the Strong side of a 4-3, or inside of a 3-4 and his speed won't be a detriment and his tackling skills can be maximized).

    80% of the time I don't use an 's', if you check my posts. But, the reminder can't hurt. Girlychick never earned my respect to spell his name right.

    Btw, he's a prospect until he's not.

    Absolutely, Tight Ends take three years minimum. First year just to learn how to block. 2nd year to discover they aren't strong enough to block and hit the weight room religiously in the off-season every year and then to learn how to run routes. 3rd year to learn both blocking and route-running, and if they have worked their tails off all this time then that tree will start to bear fruit.

    Dennard and his future employer changed their minds making him a FA again.

    Random: I didn't realize how disappointing of a year Geno Atkins had last year until I looked at his stats.

    Just did a draft on fan speak, traded back a few times, and, well, missed on the WRs early but hammered OL and LB this time around:

    1: R1P1 QB JOE BURROW LSU

    33: R2P1 C CESAR RUIZ MICHIGAN

    89: R3P25 OT BEN BARTCH SAINT JOHN'S

    105: R3P41 LB TROY DYE OREGON

    107: R4P1 G NETANE MUTI FRESNO STATE

    124: R4P18 LB AKEEM DAVIS-GAITHER APPALACHIAN STATE

    147: R5P1 CB TROY PRIDE JR. NOTRE DAME

    148: R5P2 RB ANTONIO GIBSON MEMPHIS

    152: R5P6 EDGE ALEX HIGHSMITH CHARLOTTE

    180: R6P1 WR JOE REED VIRGINIA

    215: R7P1 TE STEPHEN SULLIVAN LSU

    He'll rebound with the addition of Reader and all of the other defenders.

    Tend to agree.

    You're on my Mount Rushmore of favorite guys on RZ and I mean that...but after all these examples from this thread alone, I just had to mention it...
