The Bengals now have an excellent receiving threat with Bryant, Ochocinco, and Shipley becoming deep threats. Thomas, Caldwell, Simpson, and of course Gresham provide quick passing threats. I enjoyed the Bengal's draft due to one particular pick: Otis Hudson. The pick of the RG from Eastern Illinios in the 5th round was a shock to many, with Bobbie Williams signing a contract extension... But if you need to improve an O-line, and the draft serves you a 6-5, 312 pound beast? This guy is huge... The pick of Florida's Carlos Dunlap came as a bit of a surprise to me, I would have like to see Mardy Gilyard taken there, Dunlap has had some legal issues in the past... What is it with the Bengals and taking guys with legal issues?  I know I was just talking about how the Bengals couldn't pass up on a huge guy, but I hated the pick of Reggie Stevens, C, Iowa State. A beast at 6-3, 333 pounds, Stevens would be the ideal pick in the 7th round... If the Bengals hadn't needed a Safety. To me the perfect pick here would be Kurt Coleman, SS, Ohio State. I am an Ohio State and Bengal fan, so I would have loved to see these two hook up, but it's a fan thing. Obviously, the majority of people in Ohio are Ohio State fans. Therefore, more people may come to see your games if you have a former star player and you play in Ohio. Coleman is a hard hitter and great catcher, and Oakland was lucky to get him.
