Thread: Bengals locked into 7th through 11th choice in the first round

    What do you think about Reuben Foster, MLB from Alabama at that 9th pick?

    Zay Jones, WR, East Carolina (SR)
    Antonio Pipkin, QB, Tiffin (SR)
    I have had ECU season tickets for the last few years - the atmosphere is 100X better than a Wake Forest game. Zay Jones is a talented receiver that catches everything near him, has a knack to get open and get YAC. He is not a burner. If he slips to the 3 round I would grab him.

    I have read a lot of nay-sayers as to this guy: not big enough, plays on pure speed and no instincts, is a concussion machine (his).

    All I know is: he makes plays. I would choose him in a minute.

    He sure looked impressive in the NC game

    If we pass on Foster and he is still on the board, then we are stupid! Bengals don't value the LBer position, yet it was pretty evident last season that our suck. Foster would be a day 1 impact. Tired of watching Dansby and Rey "lope" behind receivers and backs down field.

    Foster reminds me a lot of an old LBer from Texas A&M that played for the Colts in the NFL Named Quinton Quentin Coryatt.

    The "hit" video was clearly targeting.

    When he says things like:

    1) We're looking for receivers who can catch in traffic and run after the catch
    2) We look at Tyler Boyd as a slot guy
    3) We like size at WR
    4) Edge rushers are tricky

    It sure looks like Mike Williams at #9 if he's there

  10. #50
    At least he answers questions without going in circles like the idiot Marvin.

    This guy would not be a disappointment. Sort of AJ-like, though not as fast. Would be a Red Zone terror with his ability to fight and jump for the ball. May need that, with Eifert's inability to stay on the field.

    I'd rather have the kid from Western Michigan than Mike Williams.

    You already have Eifert and two second year players behind him in Kroft and Uzahma. I like Howard, but there are too many needs on this team to draft him into a crowded position battle.

    I don't really look at Howard as a TE though, I just see him as an oversized WR that would play all over the LOS and create mismatches against anybody you line him up against....he's just a huge weapon, period.

    Why not take a guy in Corey Davis who has proven his abilities for several years now and whom many scouts tout as having Terrell Owens type talent?

    I just think Howard is the better player in all honesty.....like comparing a 4-star player to a 5-star.

    regardless, I really don't think the Bengals are going to be taking a receiver of any sorts at 9.....I think they'll wait until the 2nd or 3rd round and find themselves a speedster like Zay Jones, DeDe Westbrook, John Ross, etc.

    Love Zay Jones, I watched him play for 4 years, but, I never thought of him as speedster. I realize he has 4.4-5 speed, but, I don't remember him running away from defenders.

    He would just catch everything near him and get YAK.

    Don't know if the Bengals will be looking WR in the 2nd, but, if he is there in the 3rd - doubtful at this point - he would be a steal.

    yeah he's probably not a burner in the class of Westbrook or Ross but he's still plenty fast enough to get the job done.....I like him a lot at 41 actually.

    True in theory but our OC does not even use all the weapons we have now correctly so I would have zero faith he could use this one as you noted.

    I doubt that's the direction they're looking in anyhow

    starting to hear he bombed the interviews as well and was getting confrontational with some coaches....roid rage?

    either way, you can probably scratch him off the list at #9 after this fiasco.

    ...and the guy you don't like, Kizer, supposedly blew all the NFL people out of the water with his interviews and intelligence.

    that's GOOD! now get a couple more QB's up there in front of us.

    and it's not just Kizer I don't like, I think they're all garbage......bad bad year to need a QB, IMO.

    Zay Jones is having an outstanding combine, he's likely cemented himself as a r2 guy.....I'd have no problem whatsoever picking him at 41.
