    Been kinda enjoyable to dunk on Florio today on twitter.
    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

    OK I'm not a big fan of mock drafts, but I do them in order to be familiar with the players available. I went ahead with a PFF mock and this was the result. Note I passed on Becton at the top of the 2nd round to trade down.

    I'd be livid if the Bengals did that for real.

    Becton is one of the top tackles in the draft.

    His upside is of a perennial All-Pro.

    Im thinking he could possibly slide now with the drug test and the Bengals would be the team to take him.

    Yeah I passed because I don't think he'd actually be there.

    Beware the PFF mock tends to slide players a lot if they don’t fit PFFs idea of a high value position - so if you are trying to get a sense of who might be available - may want to run some on TDN as well. The linebackers going that late seems unlikely. And for sure Prince Tega isn’t a late 4th rounder...

    Re: 2020 Cincinnati Bengals Thread Part 2: The Joe Burrow Era is Almost Here!

    Really gonna be fun watching round 1 unfold and having 21 hours to contemplate who is available at 33 and if trading back would make sense. Anyone got any predictions for a surprise first round pick that isn't generally talked about as a first round pick? How about this - Clyde Edwards Helaire 32 to the Chiefs. Dear lord he would be devastating in that offense and with Mahomes...

    It has been enjoyable watching the narratives from Dan Patrick Show and PFT and others with regard to Burrow and the Bengals die on the vine the last few days.

    Can't say I'll watch any of the draft, but super hyped about Burrow becoming a Bengal.

    Still looks like a patchwork line though, even with Williams returning.
    He said he was curious about the crowd but didnt want to stay and talk. Im heading out, he said. This is a super-spreader event.

    Lloyd Cushenberry. I mocked him to the Patriots.

    Should be a 2nd or 3rd round pick but I could see Seattle or New England taking him and nobody questioning it.

    That's a fun guess. Could see that.

    @diannaESPN

    How much do the Bengals like Joe Burrow? While they got a few calls from teams looking to trade up, back in Feb. & March, at this point they are not even pretending to entertain offers. As one source put it “we could just turn our ringers off on our phones” in regards to a trade

    @diannaESPN Even though everyone including Joe Burrow can connect the dots, sources say the Bengals want to wait until they are on the clock to make it official with Burrow. Cincy wants to give the #1 overall pick that moment to get the call from the team on draft night. #Bengals

    That's pretty cool, actually, for them to give him that moment.

    I really hope they get a G/T type in round 2 or 3. Especially one who has done that on the right. I wish Isaiah Wilson hadn't gotten such late helium - he was ideal for that spot somewhere in two for quite awhile...

    PFF said three people to avoid, as in way overrated by the amateurs..

    Becton, Cushenberry and Austin Jackson.
