Could the Bengals Be Scared Off Alabama Prospects?

  1. I think this is valid, historically, BAMA prospects haven’t transition from college well with the Bengals organization. John Copeland (1993 1st pick), Andre Smith (2009 1st pick), both took a while to adjust and were major letdowns. Even free agent additions from BAMA have underwhelmed with us, guys like Simeon Castille (2008 Rookie) didnt make good of their stay here. The most successful BAMA prospect the Bengals brought in was Evan Mathis (2008-10) who after leaving the organization became one of the top players in the league at Guard for the Eagles, not even allowing one sack last year. So many reasons not to trust the word of Nick Saban, he was a horrible judge of talent on the pro level and the Dolphins are still trying to recover from his blunders. Our staff should rely on the game tape, workout, and interview and make the decision to bring in talent on that criteria alone.
