BenJarvus Green-Ellis: the weak link?

+

Interesting read as we think about the offensive scheme heading into 2013: fullback/no fullback? Roland back as "TE"? Gio vs BJGE.

Tanner Hawkinson a bad pick?

In 2008, Anthony Collins (#112) was picked over Carl Nicks (#164). Collins was ranked #78 overall so it was a very good value and has turned out to be a decent pick (Nicks has been better but...

Could Raiders trade down in draft with Miami?

The Dolphins have invested heavily this offseason and need to fill their gaping hole at LT if they want to make the playoffs. Sitting at #12 their chances of someone falling to them are very low. ...

DRAFTMETRICS: team draft tendencies

2

Not too surprising to see the Bengals amongst the SEC "over-drafters" especially with a historically smaller scouting department. There are more fascinating reports on the main website (http://www.draftmetrics.com/) - some of which are even positive for the Bengals :)

Long term view of Bengals' contracts

In light of the $120M deal of Joe Flacco, $67M deal of Percy Havin, $60M deal of Mike Wallace, etc. I thought it would be interesting to see how a team viewed as being cheap has paid its players...

Offseason Plan using real cap figures

Given the team's cap situation, the prospects are grim for a major overhaul to the roster. Rather than focusing on the complete roster, this post examines the starting 22 plus special teams. ...

PFF free agent RB ranking

+

Yes, yes, we all agree that we don't want a free agent RB and we should rather draft a compliment to BJGE, but... Chris Ivory is unlikely to get a high RFA tender given the plethora of backs on the NO roster (and how little he was use). He seems to fit both the typical Bengals mold and we could still draft a scat-back type player in the mid-rounds.

PFF team needs

+

"After years of futility, Cincinnati Bengals fans are rightly celebrating reaching the playoffs two years in a row. And despite losing to the Houston Texans in the Wild Card round, also for the second year in a row, there are plenty of positives to take from 2012. That being said, when you’re in a division with the Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens, and the normally dominant Pittsburgh Steelers, you don’t have time to sit back and congratulate yourself on a job well done."
