Bio

thatswhatshesaid with the pick:

Despite spending the past couple of years focusing on the defensive side of the ball in the Draft, Cincinnati still pretty much sucks on defense. And while they will need to make improvements to their offense as well, with the whole Chad Johnson situation, there is no wideout worth taking.

They would love for Sedrick Ellis to fall to #9, and would pounce on him then just as the Chiefs would jump on Jake Long if he dropped to #5. If Ellis is gone, which he is in this Mock Draft, they would like turn their attention to another USC Trojan. OLB Keith Rivers. While the defensive line presents a more pressing need, there is no great value at either d-tackle or d-end at this point, with Ellis and Long and Gholston and Dorsey all gone. So, they address another big need, an outside linebacker to go along with Ahmad Brooks in the middle. They signed Dhani Jones this offseason, but he is better suited to a reserve role, and the other outside linebacker (Rashad Jeanty) is nothing to write home about.

1. Miami Dolphins - QB Matt Ryan
2. St. Louis Rams - OT Jake Long
3. Atlanta Falcons - DT Glenn Dorsey
4. Oakland Raiders - DE Chris Long
5. Kansas City Chiefs - DT Sedrick Ellis
6. New York Jets - RB Darren McFadden
7. New England Patriots - DL Vernon Gholston
8. Baltimore Ravens - OT Ryan Clady
9. Cincinnati Bengals - OLB Keith Rivers
