    Good value pick.

    So who is getting cut between Reggie Kelly and Ben Utecht? I would love to go into the season with all three (Kelly can play fullback) but Mike Brown doesn't understand the concept of depth and will cut one of them to save money. You can bank on it. I just wonder who it will be.

    TEs, FBs, and LBs tend to be the best Special Teams fodder. I can see keeping Kelly to block and Utecht to receive while we develop a 3-down TE. OTOH we seem to have 3 FBs on the roster. Unless we try to hide our draft pick on the practice squad, Jeremi and/or Coats is gone.

    Coates is gone for sure. We could keep three tightends. One less WR. Bratkowski is suppose to be changing the playbook. Be more a power team than a finesee team.

    Kelly will be here. He's just too solid a pro at all levels of the position to cast him aside.

    I believe the Coffman drafting was more as a hedge against another non-year from Utecht...who is as brittle as balsa wood, a non-factor blocking, and a disappointment at receiving.

    I think Coates was re-signed because of depth questions. That is no longer an issue. He will be the one on the outs.

    Just watched JOhnson's highlight real on youtube. If that is the best of his season, I kinda wondering just what he needed to be rated a 1-2 draft round candidate. His highlights seem like his main criticism--scattershot. Times he's quick off the ball, times he's still in his stance when everybody else is playing. He doesn't look that quick or fast. Basically he didn't look any better than Robt Geathers. Wonder if LB is in his stars.

    He does look good dropping into space. At 6-7 and an elite vertical jump he could give QBs fits with tipped balls. My only issue with him is he seems to be a bit finesse. I could imagine a Steeler breaking his jaw.

    Michael Johnson is a great pick. He just needs a little NFL coaching, especially on the use of hands against blockers. IMO the GA Tech coaching staff wasn't able or just didn't provide what Johnson needed to be at the top of his game. I think the Bengals will give 'em what he needs & he'll be a force to be reckoned with.

    Michael is a friend & he is NO quitter dudes.

    I know he'll be a hard fit for the Bengals, being a morally upstanding character and all.....

    We don't put pressure on the QB, what makes you think the Bengals coaching staff is any better? Stick around, kid, you will learn something.
