Mock Draft 2014: Bengals go cornerback and center

Mock Draft 2014: Bengals go cornerback and center

The popular belief is that Cincinnati will go with a cornerback in the first round of the 2014 NFL draft. Adam Jones is fine with that, but doesn't believe it should be a priority. In SB Nation's latest mock draft, no cornerbacks were taken in the first 14 picks. Five were then taken in the final 18 selections of the first round and five more in the second. Cincinnati selected one, Oklahoma State's Justin Gilbert, at No. 24. Justin Gilbert may be the most talented cornerback in this draft, but he's still a bit unrefined in his technique. The Bengals likely won't mind, considering they...

Bengals begin offseason workouts

The Cincinnati Bengals, along with most of the NFL, begin their respective offseason training program. Normally speaking, April 21 would be a nondescript sunny day for Cincinnati with most people. A gentle breeze that offers another tease that we're really approaching summer after a miserable winter slapped us with a humble stick doesn't figure to be a day featuring the Bengals. After all, it's the day after Easter, on 4/20, shaking hands for one of the more economic beneficial days in April as people are slogging back to work.

That's where Bengals strength and conditioning coach Chip Morton comes into play. "We’ve already got a great weight room, but in square footage we’re probably on the lower end, so we’ve worked in small groups," Morton said. "We’ve been very...

Long Shots: A Few Alternative Draft Realities

You are probably tired of reading the same draft scenarios for the Bengals so here are hopefully some less-worn possibilities. The Bengals could go in any direction in this year's draft. Most, it seems, have them addressing their aged secondary in the early rounds, which makes plenty of sense, but I bet team personnel might say that they feel good about the players they have already back there. Others point to the players lost in free agency, and feel that replacing Michael Johnson or Anthony Collins should be the team's draft priority. And, of course, the quarterback debate rages on if...

NFL Draft Rumors: Dolphins targeting Cyrus Kouandjio in first round

As the NFL Draft nears closer and closer, we'll begin to hear "reports" of teams targeting specific players with their first-round pick. When the 2013 college football season ended, Alabama tackle Cyrus Kouandjio was projected as a top-15 pick.
