The Bengals have had several nice drafts in a row. They have talent.
Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.
Never could get a real explanation about their logic there...

If you liked Eifert in the 1st, you'll love Brandon Kauffman in round 7. He's a WR and about same height and 30lb lighter. But way better hands and way better production.
Eifert can't block. He's slow. He's a glorified WR with little production in college. You could argue the Bengals made a bad pick.
I think Margus Hunt could be a nightmare at the LOS. Another good pick.

the bungles have one of the worst owners in the league and an average coach. yes, they've taken some steps and I'm not underestimating them - but until they actually put together a good management team their success will be limited and streaky as opposed to a consistent opportunity to win.
