    I keep coming back to the thought the linebacker is the big need we are all overlooking. The Bengals have been somewhat soft in the middle for a long time… long enough that I think we are just used to it. Strengthening the LB corps would not alleviate the need for a corner, but it would benefit the entire defense. And with most mock drafts seeming to tie Hightower to the Steelers, there has to be something to like there.

  2. Scruf says:

    How about Nick Toon for a mid-round WR?

  3. Seubs says:

    I’ve been saying it for months that my mancrush is on David DeCastro and Michael Floyd. That said, I think the Bengals will ultimately go LB and CB in round 1.

  4. Nate says:

    No offense Seubs, but I hope Floyd doesn’t fall anywhere near Cincy. I don’t like the idea of A.J. Green and another first-rounder having to split catches. I’ll take someone in the later rounds. Nick Toon would be fine. Might be available in the third, has a good pedigree, and decent size.

  5. Eric says:

    I don’t think there will be any worth corners by #17, forcing the team to make other arrangements, and one, unfortunately, may be a WR.

    I’d love to get Hightower. I think he’s an instant upgrade over Rey, and the fact that the Steelers want him so bad makes the choice that much more delicious. That said, sounds like Marvin is already more interested in Courtney Upshaw.
