EDTShareTweetShareShareBengals mailbag: Fan mocks, narrowing down No. 11, and the power gameCan you hear it? That’s the sound the NFL Draft rumor mill wheels churning and the Cincinnati Bengals are shoveling coal into the machine. As it currently stands, and in using the correct variables (availability, need, past draft operating practices), we have a few names that seem to be obvious links to the team. “The Devin’s” (White and Bush), some boom-or-bust defensive linemen in the form of Rashan Gary and Montez Sweat, as well as Dwayne Haskins all seem to be players the Bengals would consider at No. 11. Ed Oliver is a guy they’d undoubtedly spring for, if he’s there, while some offensive linemen like Oklahoma’s Cody Ford, Florida’s Jawaan Taylor, Alabama’s Jonah Williams and Washington State’s Andre Dillard have to be in the conversation. But, what is the small group the Bengals have it narrowed down to as they engage in their first draft class under Zac Taylor? In plotting out some of the above-mentioned variables, while also attempting to sift through the myriad of rumors that inevitably spring up this time of year, the picture is becoming a bit clearer. At least we think it is. Because of need, probable availability and the ushering in of the Taylor era Color Rush Germaine Pratt Jersey, common knowledge tells us that the group is probably comprised of Haskins, Taylor, Ford, Bush and Gary. Cincinnati has traditionally liked big school kids who have shown the propensity to play well against high levels of competition and those five have shown that trait on film. If Oliver falls in their laps because one of a couple of specific scenarios play out, he’ll undoubtedly be the pick, while Sweat, Williams and Clemson’s Christian Wilkins are also on the periphery. Each of these guys come with pros and cons, but a very good football player should slip to them at No. 11 because of the unpredictable nature of night one. What may be even more interesting, though, is what the team does on night two. Some first round talents will be available atop the second round, and some signs point to a receiver being taken higher than some expect. If Cincinnati doesn’t get one of those versatile defensive linemen in the first, could they go with the more traditional and mammoth-like Dexter Lawrence in round two, if he gets past New England and Los Angeles? What about a guy like Andy Isabella in the third round to work into Taylor’s play-action, four-receiver sets? The Rams liked their mid-round wideouts, as evidenced by recent picks like Cooper Kupp (third round) and Josh Reynolds (fourth round).We’re close to one of the more interesting draft classes for the Cincinnati Bengals in recent memory. And, while this franchise is adverse to almost anything resembling the label of “progressive,” there should be some twists and turns this coming weekend. *****Speaking of picks, one of our listeners on The Orange and Black Insider submitting his own four-round mock draft. We thought it was interesting enough to share on air and in this mailbag. Here’s how the mock played out: Round 1, pick 11: Devin Bush, LB, MichiganRound 2, pick 42: Tytus Howard, OT Cheap Germaine Pratt Jersey, Alabama StateRound 3, pick 72: Alize Mack, TE, Notre DameRound 4, pick 110: Brett Rypien, QB, Boise StateI’ll save time with a bypass of Bush, seeing as how he’s been talked about quite frequently here. The other three are interesting picks, with high upside. Some are also major risks, though—particularly for a Bengals team in need of immediate contributors to their team.Howard is a guy who might sneak into the back end of the first round, even though he went to a lesser-known football school. He has work to do at the next level and could benefit from good coaching, but as a former quarterback around the time he entered college, the athleticism and IQ are there for the molding. When we received this mock, Mack was a guy I knew the least about in this group of four prospects. And, like many of his Fighting Irish predecessors at the position, he has good size (6’4”, 250 pounds) and should prove to be a viable red zone target in the NFL. His blocking needs work and there have been some “concentration drops” in his history, but he could become a decent rotational tight end. I think he’s more of a day three guy, but he’s definitely a name they should consider as they look to add more talented contingency plans at the group. Rypien, the nephew of Super Bowl XXVI MVP Mark Rypien, is one of the more interesting players in this year’s draft. If the Bengals don’t grab a quarterback on night one, it’s very likely that they wait until day three to grab a developmental guy for backup competition with Jeff Driskel. At 6’2” and 210 pounds, Rypien doesn’t have the size that most scouts look for in a viable NFL quarterback. Of course Germaine Pratt Jersey Womens, there are outliers in the molds of Russell Wilson and potentially Kyler Murray, but Rypien doesn’t have their athleticism. He does have a high football IQ, is accurate with his passes and was productive for the Broncos (90 career touchdown passes, 64% career college completion percentage and an average of 3,395 passing yards per NCAA season). This is the type of player who could come in and immediately take a hold of the backup quarterback position in Cincinnati. He would probably grasp the system well early on and could be effective in the rare spot starts for Andy Dalton. However, the Bengals would probably be looking for another long-term starting option in 2020 or 2021 should they go this route. Which is fine, as many folks want to see what Dalton can do in Taylor’s new system.*****Another question that came our way on OBI was in the potential need for a more traditional style fullback in the Bengals’ offense. Back in the day, thumpers like Daryl Johnston and Lorenzo Neal are what were needed for guys like Emmitt Smith, Corey Dillon and LaDainian Tomlinson to get record-breaking performances. However, as the NFL has developed into more of a passing league, these walking squares of football players have become passe. What’s the deal?Well, there are two main reasons for this evolution. Because of the need/desire of pass-catchers at multiple positions in an offense, units have either opted for players in the H-Back mold, or have eliminated from their final rosters altogether. Zone blocking schemes have also made the need for the traditional fullbacks slamming up the middle less frequent. These schemes have a lot of outside runs and sometimes require a back to be patient and pick their lane. Joe Mixon frequently ran without an additional blocker in the backfield, as well as out of shotgun formations. Cincinnati may opt to look for some of these H-Back-type of players in this years draft—or at least fullbacks who have more versatility than some of the older molds. West Virginia’s Trevon Wesco is an interesting player, as is Wisconsin’s Alec Ingold. But, Taylor will need to be able to use these players effectively in his system. One of the criticisms of Marvin Lewis is that, while he was able to gather talented players, he didn’t always use them to their maximum potential (see: Burkhead, Rex). The Rams did occasionally use Tyler Higbee out of the backfield, so maybe Taylor can adopt some of those concepts with a potential rookie H-Back in Cincinnati. For now, we don’t expect the Bengals to be employing a true, old school fullback on the roster.

As long as Mike Tomlin is standing on the Pittsburgh sideline, watching Ben Roethlisberger pass to Antonio Brown or give the ball to Le'Veon Bell, the Steelers will be favored to win the AFC North.It makes no difference that Randy Fichtner is the new offensive coordinator, or that Roethlisberger turned 36 in March.The Steelers are going to score points, and they're going to play their best against division rivals in big games.Baltimore knows this all too well. Two years ago, Bell rushed for 122 yards and Roethlisberger connected with Brown for a last-minute touchdown in a 31-27 victory that clinched the AFC North title.Last December, Roethlisberger threw for 506 yards and two TDs, Bell scored twice and the Steelers beat the Ravens 39-38.Baltimore hopes to turn things around this year, but if the Ravens are to break a run of three straight years without a playoff appearance, it will likely be as a wild card.There are, by the way, two other teams in the division. Cincinnati and Cleveland deserve mention only because one will likely finish in third place and the other will occupy the cellar.In Cincinnati, coach Marvin Lewis got a two-year extension despite his NFL-record 0-7 mark in the playoffs. After two straight losing seasons, he's getting a 16th chance to finally get it right.Cleveland is coming off an 0-16 embarrassment and can only hope to be respectable. Since the creation of the current AFC North in 2002, the Browns are the only team never to finish in first place.Some things to know about the AFC North:FOR WHOM THE BELL TOILS: Pittsburgh and its „Killer Bs“ — Roethlisberger, Brown and Bell — have reached the playoffs four straight years. Yet all those trips to January have turned into just three postseason wins and no trips to the Super Bowl.While the rejuvenated Roethlisberger believes he can play until he nears 40, this may be his last legitimate shot to win a third championship. Bell is likely in his final year in black-and-gold after being unable to come to terms with the club on a new long-term deal.Bell is one of the most versatile backs in the league and not easily replaceable. He won't lack for motivation. He believes he's a unique talent and wants the paycheck to prove it.Pittsburgh's best chance to return to the Super Bowl will rely heavily on having Bell at the top of his game and will certainly take the tradeoff of seeing Bell elsewhere in 2019 if it means hoisting the Lombardi Trophy in February.FAREWELL TOUR: Ozzie Newsome is the only general manager the Ravens have ever had Germaine Pratt Jersey 2019, running the show in Baltimore since the team arrived from Cleveland before the 1996 season.Newsome will be stepping aside after this season, to be replaced by current assistant GM Eric DeCosta, who in 2019 will finally get the job he wanted after spurning offers from several other clubs.The Ravens have won two Super Bowls under Newsome, who in his final season has assembled a team that appears better than last year's model.Having provided quarterback Joe Flacco with a new receiving group, Newsome addressed Baltimore's most glaring weakness in 2017.BENGALS ON THE LINE: Cincinnati's offense finished last in the league in yards last season, the worst showing in franchise history. The focus of their offseason was overhauling the line, which failed to protect Andy Dalton or open holes in the running game.The Bengals fired line coach Paul Alexander, traded with Buffalo for left tackle Cordy Glenn, signed right tackle Bobby Hart and drafted center Billy Price in the first round from Ohio State. Despite all that, the right side of the line struggled against the Cowboys in the second preseason game, renewing concerns that problems remain.GOTTA BE BETTER, CAN'T GET WORSE: Cleveland coach Hue Jackson is 1-31 in two seasons with Cleveland, but Browns owners Dee and Jimmy Haslam still believe they hired the right coach in 2016. Time will tell, but the pressure is on Jackson from the get-go to win or there could be more changes in a team that has known mostly upheaval for 20 years.The Browns drafted quarterback Baker Mayfield with the No. 1 overall pick, but the Heisman Trophy winner will begin the year as a backup to Tyrod Taylor, who helped Buffalo snap a 17-year postseason drought last season.Predicted order of finish: Steelers, Ravens, Bengals, Browns.AP Sports Writers Joe Kay, Tom Withers and Will Graves contributed.
