    Well once they put Driskell on IR they will open a spot.

      Surprised they're going with only 3 RBs. That's taking a chance

        Well they were able to get Brandon Wilson on the PS so they do have a 4th guy on call.

              Cincyjungle says the Bengals claimed a guy off another team. The signed former Wisconsin DN Sojourne Shelton from the Cardinals. He' super quick, but very small.

                Just goes to show what a guessing game the draft really is...and yet it gets graded just minutes after it's completed...comical when you think about it.

                  How about my favorite line . . . "you can't really grade these drafts until three or four years down the line" . . . and then spend the next 15 weeks of draft coverage NOT spending any time grading the drafts from three or four years ago.

                    Speaking of which, let's revisit the 2014 draft a minute.

                    Darqueze Dennard - still don't know what we have there. He's struggled with injuries and all the talk of his potential hasn't yet shown up on the field. Hopefully this is his breakout year.
                    Jeremy Hill - Brilliant his rookie season, but then got fumblitis, lost his confidence, and has never returned to form.
                    Will Clarke - Played well at times, but too inconsistent. Pack your bags.
                    Russell Bodine - Has drawn the ire of fans, but the coaches have defended him. He has improved some, but still needs to play significantly better this year.
                    AJ McCarron - Played well when forced into duty. Has a nice deep ball. Could be a starter for several teams.
                    Marquis Flowers - Never did anything noteworthy for the Bengals. New England can have him.
                    James Wright - Played okay in limited opportunities, but got beat out.
                    Lavelle Westbrooks - 7th rounder who didn't make the team.

                    So far, McCarron is arguably the best player from that draft. If we don't see some serious improvement from Dennard, Hill, and Bodine, this draft will look pretty bad.

                      The Bengals felt pretty good about the two players they signed from Arizona to fill out their practice squad, particularly guard-center Cole Toner, a second-year player. The Bengals lost rookie guard-center J.J. Dielman, a fifth-round pick, to waivers on Sunday, but in the 6-7, 300-pound Toner they get a 2016 fifth-rounder who has already played in two NFL games. And they’ve tracked Toner since he was at Harvard and gave him high grades for, naturally, brains …

                      They were hoping to squad cornerback Tony McRae, but when he signed with the Ravens practice squad the Bengals responded with a guy they pondered late in this year’s draft, the undrafted Sojourn Shelton. The 5-9, 168-pounder out of Wisconsin played in three pre-season games and recorded five tackles.

                      Also in the same article . . .
                      The defensive line has gone through some numbers changes. Rookie end Jordan Willis traded No. 99 to second-year nose tackle Andrew Billings for No. 75 and that’s what they’ll be wearing when they get their first NFL snaps Sunday. Rookie tackle Ryan Glasgow handed in No. 67 for more of a D-line number and got Brandon Thompson’s No. 98 …

                        I liked Willis in 99 more. The Bengals used to have a good DE that wore that number... Jason Buck.

                          God, does that bring back some bad memories. Lots and lots of effort but the D-line of Buck - Krumrie - Skow/McClendon was so undersized that by the end of the 3rd quarter, they were all spent and got run over. The only thing that kept it from being a complete disaster was Fulcher's ability to play the extra LB role and more or less making it a front 8.

                            Yep...the next draft I see graded 3 or 4 years after it happens will be my first. I'm sure there's a couple out there somewhere but I've never seen one.
