2013 NFL Draft Team Needs: Cincinnati Bengals Edition

The Cincinnati Bengals made next to no moves to bolster their roster with new talent on the open market, but the club did a rock-solid job of retaining its own players over the last three and a half weeks in 2013 NFL Free Agency.  Let’s examine the Bengals’ updated team needs entering the 2013 NFL Draft (in no particular order).

Focus On: Safeties

This position has been more patchwork than plan for too long. It is time the Bengals take a quality safety high in the draft or snatch a guy the way the 49ers swooped in and stole Donte Whitner a couple of years ago. Reggie Nelson: signed through 2015 Reggie had another solid season and proved to be worth wooing back from leaping to the Jets. (Given the Jets season, I’m sure he...

How Mike Zimmer is fixing the secondary

When your car breaks down you often just replace what is broken. In the case of NFL defenses, teams often decide to start fresh by bringing in new coaches, players, and philosophies to stop losing games on defense. Mike Zimmer has brought a top ten defense to town in his tenure, but he is not stopping there. Last year's second half was evidence the secondary needed to improve...

Could A Corner Be Our Second Best Safety?

Could Newman contribute as a Safety in Mike Zimmer's D? Mike Zimmer has been nothing less than a Godsend to the Bengals.  In his relatively short time in the Queen City, he’s managed to turn the Bengals defense from an annual sore spot and laughing stock to the unit that often single-handedly wins games.  Perhaps most impressively, he’s done it with a hodgepodge of parts...

Bengals starting Taylor Mays at safety in OTAs

Once viewed as an elite prospect, Taylor Mays fell to the 2nd round in 2010, where he was drafted by the San Francisco 49ers. Many felt the 49ers got a steal with him there, but he turned out to be the exact opposite of a steal for them. Mike Singletary, his biggest backer, was fired after Mays’ rookie year. Jim Harbaugh came in, decided he didn’t like Mays and shipped him to...

Who Makes The Cut? SS/FS Edition

I am excited about what the Bengals’ defense could do this year. They made upgrades on a defensive line that was already pretty good, especially on the interior, which ought to benefit all of the guys behind them. The more pressure that the line can generate, the shorter time that the coverage guys have to cover. But let’s start in the backfield with the group that concerns me...
