05/12/2014 - By selecting LSU running back Jeremy Hill in the second round of the draft the Bengals may have pushed veteran BenJarvus Green-Ellis out the door. Green-Ellis will be 29 when the season begins and averaged a career low 3.4 yards per carry last year. Hill comes in the same mold as Green-Ellis, who played last year as the bruiser to the speedy Giovani Bernard. Hill is 6-1 and 233 pounds. Is there enough room for Green-Ellis to stay in a suddenly crowded running backs room? "Right now there is," offensive coordinator Hue Jackson said. "Right now that's not my concern. My biggest thing is, again, whoever we put on this team, my job is to coach. So at the end of the day, we have some very competitive guys in our room, and I know nobody's going to shy away from anybody. And that's what you like. At the end of the day, we have to line up and we're going to play the best players. That's the name of this business. It's a very good room; it's a very close room. We're adding another player just like we did a year ago into the room, into the mix. We expect him to help our football team. How it unfolds, it will unfold." - The Sports Xchange
