Oregon C Max Unger

mistamic with the pick...

I was tempted to put Lesean McCoy up here. He's still considered to be a first round talent and Cincy needs more than just Cedric Benson to help with the running game. But the running back class is pretty deep this year and they can pick up some better value later in the draft. For now, they stick to fixing up their offensive line. Their interior needs a lot of help. Enter Unger, a standout center from Oregon. Like McCoy, he's a first round talent that has slipped into the second round. He's got a lot of experience (said to be at 51 consecutive starts). He's very strong and has good side for an interior lineman. He is considered to be a hard worker. He's got good mobility for a guy his size. He doesn't have a history with injuries, which is one of the top three things I would look for in a player. And the best thing about Unger is his versatility: he played tackle for two years, then switched to center for his last two years. Scouts believe he can also play guard if needed. Some say that he doesn't do anything that makes him stand out. I don't buy it. Unger may not be the flashiest guy but he's very accomplished and he could certainly help out the Bengals.

Round 1 is here.

Previous pick: OT William Beatty
