    I don't see the Bengals moving out of #9. Mike likes his picks and rarely moves. The only thing I could see would be moving down a few spots in the first round while picking up an additional second and fourth round pick. Then using our bevy of picks to bundle and move back into round 1. Regardless of what we do at #9, I can still see us packaging picks to possibly get into the 2nd round again.

    As for the trade, it is blah to me. Conditional 2018 pick for a body. I'm sure the conditional pick is a 6th or 7th rounder regardless of what Smith does on the field. It is one of those fliers with possible upside and low risk. Besides, Gilberry has been a solid performer for us, so if Smith falls into the Gilberry molde, I consider it a net positive.
    Don't underestimate the power of the Dark Side!
