Cincinnati Bengals | Best & Worst Case Scenario for Round 1 of the NFL Draft

The Bengals are another team that could go in a handful of directions in round 1 with top needs at DE, OL, CB. I think the loss of Michael Johnson leaves to much of a void for the Bengals to not address early. While they still have 2nd year (not so young) Margus Hunt, a guy like Kony Ealy might be to tough to pass on. Also don’t be entirely surprised if the Bengals throw-out their...

Top 5+: New Orleans Saints need one of these cornerbacks

Ask any Saints fan in the world what our biggest need going into the draft is, and more than half will emphatically reply with “cornerback”. As one of those voices, I will be quite disappointed if they don’t draft a cornerback in the first two rounds. The options are plenty this year and while not as deep as the wide receiver class, there will be talent on the board no matter...

San Francisco 49ers: Nickel Corner Targets

The 49ers will not have Carlos Rogers, last year’s primary nickel corner for the 2014 season. They have kicked the tires on a few players such as Walter Thurmond III as possible free agent options to fill the void. In the end, they settled on Chris Cook but that still leaves them without a true corner to cover slot receivers. The 49ers will be really be in the market for a nickel...

Draft Needs: San Francisco 49ers and Jason Verrett?

The San Francisco 49ers have an obvious need for a cornerback and it seems likely that the need would be fixed in the first round of the 2014 draft. If there was any player who is on people’s draft boards who might be getting overlooked, it is cornerback Jason Verrett out of TCU. Verrett is likely to be overlooked because of his small size, standing at 5’10.
