      All things considered, whoever is taken is one heckuva good football player. It is always fun watching these guys grow into the next-level game.

        The value would be safety, but it's not a need and Bengals don't value the position. Barnett is the "safe" pick, but doesn't make the team any faster. Foster seems to be having a bad couple of months and I don't see that getting better after the draft. I'm not a Dalvin Cook fan for various reasons including the value of the position. Another CB is the most unsexy pick and would have value, but seriously.. This gets me rooting for Reddick, who I know can rush the passer and would increase the defensive speed at LB or DE. As a dark horse I like Corey Davis, who is a better receiver than Williams, but doesn't have that incredible catch radius. Or a 3-4 DE could drop and we end up with a good power end, but not a speed rusher, which is a need.

            Big fan of Ross and Reddick but is #9 to high?? I wouldn't be upset if we took either, Ross is a flippin playmaker. Foster just seems like the immediate impact we need.
            I agree with the concern about Eifert. I think we take Howard if he is there.

              I wouldn't use the word redshirted necessarily, but to answer Spicoli's question I meant because he's recovering from labrum surgery and would probably start on the PUP. And Wrs don't acclimate quickly in general. So his ceilling as a rookie to me is very good kick returner, and 4th WR and situational lid-lifter. That's still value to be sure, but it's year two that we'd have a lethal Green/Ross/Boyd combo.

                I wasn't really a Ross fan until I watched his tape, mostly because I prefer bigger WRs. Dalton has gotten better at the deep ball but it's still not his strong suit, so sub 6-foot deep threat specialists never made sense to me. But watch the tape and I see a taller, faster Antonio Brown. I mean his hip swivel and twitch are incredible.

                  Was just reading an article on Reddick. Seems he played more "off-ball" LB in Temple's defense than DE. This leads me to not see him as that dreaded "tweener" as much as a really fast, downhill, LB. Is that worth the top pick? Couldn't hurt I suppose.

                  Spic has said for months now that game-changing skills should be the BPA for this pick. Speed is something you can't coach, so maybe Ross is just the ticket?

First he might need shoulder surgery again, secondly he got sent home from the combine, and now it has come out he failed his drug test at the combine for having a diluted sample. He'll start his career in the substance abuse program. Fu cking dope heads can't control themselves enough to cost themselves MILLIONS of dollars.
                    Wouldn't you know it, I post I like Foster at #9 and 20 minutes later I read he failed a drug test......I wonder what drug it was?

                      Living in Washington, I got to see Ross a lot. The guy is fast, but he is quicker than anyone I have seen with very good hands.

                        And the Browns have been tied to chatter about moving their second first round pick up higher to get a QB

                          It was a diluted sample. He blames it on being sick and drinking too much water to stay hydrated... but in the NFL it doesn't matter it counts as a failed test.

                            Comment on these NFL Rumors

                            The Jets really like Charles Harris, and he could be at the top Jets' big board. - James Parks, CBS
                            If the Jets removed unrealistic candidates like Myles Garrett and Leonard Fournette, this is definitely plausible. There's been growing buzz that Harris will be chosen in the top 15, and New York could potentially obtain Harris if it moves down to No. 12, per the trade Charlie Campbell referenced in the NFL Draft Rumor Mill. -Walter

                              Only in the NFL can a person "fail" a drug test, even though there were no drugs.

                              Some team will take the "chance" on this guy...and get a 10-year All Pro.

                                Warren Sapp fell to the Buccaneers because there was a "report" that he smoked marijuana. He was a top three pick and wound up falling to #12.
