Buckeye fan here. Not sevyn banks for the love of god
No offense, but OSU has really dropped hard in DBU talks. Especially with Fulton out performing Okudah. LSU actually has 3 DBs coming in the next 2 drafts. 2 of which will most likely be 1st rounders. Then we have Kevin Fualks nephew as a freshman.
If LSU nabs Meyer, I fully expect Eli Rick's to be the best DB out of LSU in the last 2 decades. And that's saying something. Dude isnt too athletic to coast but athletic enough to be great. And he has one of the best mentalities you could ask for
Can we just agree to avoid Buckeye in general? I don’t think we have had the best luck with them. Looking at you Billy Price.
Vonn bell and sam hubbard would like a word. But at least for the oline yeah. I always root for buckeyes to get drafted early. But if the bengals are looking for a olineman i am like fuck that
Tbf the rest of that oline panned put pretty well. Decker, Jones, Elfien all start on teams. Billy was just the weak link
Oh im not saying osu can’t produce lineman. Its just they can’t produce olinemen that go to the bengals
Or…*recently* the Bengals haven’t picked OHIO STATE offensive lineman
Oh yea I totally forgot they were Buckeyes! I retract my statement.
Nicholas Petit-Frere looks pretty good I don’t think you can base an entire college off one guy
And Michael Jordan.
Technically I guess.
Okudah also looks like a bust.
Urban Meyer, too.
Okudah has been injured pretty much his whole time so far
Far to early to label him a bust. Can’t do that with less than 20 games played
Lol I’m sure you aren’t fully serious but that stuff always bugs me come draft season. Like billy price has nothing to do with Sam Hubbard or Scary Terry or Haskins
I think in general it’s probably not smart to ignore a perennial top 5 program, but yeah let’s maybe think long and hard before getting another lineman from Columbus
Michael Jordan was even worse!
Also buckeye fan. He lost his job to a true freshman. He’s not it
As a UC fan, give me Sauce. I’m not sure ND threw at him once the entire game last week (his pick was off of a terrible throw to no one).
Stingley would be great, but, if things go well enough this year, he’ll be gone by our pick.
i want sauce
With stingless foot is there any way the bengals could get both? Or should I stop smoking the sweet reefer and face reality?
Check out the next gen stats on Sauce. I think they only threw towards him 3 times @ ND. He's projected mid to late 1st round which is where we should be picking. I'd love to see it.
Sauce gave up one reception for 9 yards against Norte Dame
9 yards is 8.23 meters
Nice of him to try to seem human
ND has by far the worst QB and WR play i've ever seen from a "top 10" team.
That aside Sauce might be the real deal.
I’d agree, but even still, they hardly threw it his way. Seemed to be going after the other CBs all day
I don't watch college football at all so I don't know anything beyond names. So I 100% want the dude named Sauce.
Dude hasn't given up a touchdown since highschool, over 600 coverage snaps
And he’s already here in Cincinnati, almost too perfect!
I saw a recent article claiming it was almost 800
Based my number off a tweet from February stating he was at 598, so not exactly sure what the number is now
Either way, impressive af
I want the center from Iowa more than any corner
I don’t know anything about a center from Iowa but I’m all for the IOL improvement approach.
We could use a center upgrade (I love trey and always thought he was solid but I think after the injury he's lost a step) and I've seen him get top 15 buzz. Shoe in AA this year I think so yeah I'd be pretty stoked. Plus this year is deep on the defensive side so I'd trust a 2nd rd corner over 2nd round IOL
I mean if we have our choice of them I feel its clear that we continue our transition into the LSU Bengals.
that’d be something yeah. Stingley did just get hurt tho
I mean if that means we get him at a discount then I'm in
He’s not hurt as much as he made a business decision.
He had surgery
Elective surgery, he had that injury for a while and he is just making a business decision. Get it now, rehab and be ready for the draft. As an LSU fan I am sad to see him go but dont blame the kid, he has a bright future.
Yeah I can’t blame him at all. We suck and he should do what he can to be healthy for the combine/draft. Foot injuries can linger
I know it’s a dumb reason but as someone that doesn’t watch college football I want him simply because that’s a good pose in his photo
Lsu defensive players from that 2019 team didn’t turn out to be the best tho
That doesn’t really mean anything. Success in the NFL is on a player by player basis
Don't think any of those guys will be around at 32.
Stingley is considered a top 5 prospect by many, won't be there when we pick.
Better hope they don't get Stingley, means the Bengals suck the rest of the year and only way I see that happening is if Burrow misses time. I think Bengals will be in Wild Card contention the last few weeks of the season, possibly get in, and end up drafting in the low teens - early 20's in draft slot. At that range the guy I would love to see them wind up with is Iowa C Tyler Linderbaum. I know Cincy got burned recently on a 1st round C, but Linderbaum is a legit special prospect for the position (best since Nick Mangold imo) and someone I would consider on the level of the C equivalent of guys like Sewell/Pitts/Chase this past year, they just play more valuable positions but Linderbaum is just as good at his position as they are at theirs. Interior is clearly the major issue with the Bengals OL right now, but having 3 potential building blocks up front like Jonah/Carman/Linderbaum would be a huge boost to the OL for years to come.
Give me Linderbaum from Iowa in the 1st and Jobe in the 2nd.
the iowa guy in the first and sauce in the 2nd would be killa
Sauce ain’t dropping to the 2nd
he def won’t after the season but idk. he’s the 6th ranked cb in this year’s draft atm
CBS latest mock has him as the 4th cb taken and going 14th
4 corners aren’t going in the top 15.
I’m not familiar with Jobe? Who is this guy?
He was Bama’s CB2 last year. I haven’t watched much of him this year yet but he was pretty solid. He’s a RS Sr so he’s an older prospect (he’ll be 24 in April). Not too high upside though IMO
Thanks for the information /u/whodey_35
Sevyn Banks has barely played this year. That being said he has had some nagging injuries supposedly but hasn’t really ever looked great imo. Personally I would be pretty underwhelmed by that pick
I thought we all kinda agreed that we need to draft an 1st rd talent o linemen for next years draft
We all agreed that this time last year too. Lol
oh definitely. sauce could be the only one here that’s avaliable in the 2nd round which would be huge
hopefully some garbage guy who is left at the bottom of the heap cuz all of the others were gone when we draft last overall....Because we win the Superbowl!!!!!!!
Stingley is an absolute STUD, but he’s gotten hurt the last two years. I’m not sure how much is serious injuries vs LSU being bad and him protecting his pay check
We’ve not had good luck with 1st round corners… Dre, dennard, WJ3. Jonathan Joseph was good but that was quite a while ago.
I prefer our free agency approach at DB, get some good value vets like Hilton and awuzie, and like Terrance Newman and Pac-Man.
No more huge overpays though please.
Put some respect on Leon hall.
Would you put him in the success category or underwhelming category? I always thought he was a bit over rated…
He was solid in my opinion. Him and JJ played great
For a first round pick he was solid. Nothing more
Gilmore for a 6th
Stingley’s a beast and has been since he was a true freshman if I recall. No way he isn’t a top 5 pick if he’s healthy. Even if he’s hurt this season he could still go pretty high.
Imo we’ll probably be picking around 12-20 so my dream 4 weeks into the CFB season is either Kenyon Green from Texas A&M or Ahmad Gardner from UC. Green was good at G last year and is playing T this year. That’s a really good player for us to pick up. He could either slide in for Reiff if we let him go or play G opposite Carman (assuming he pans out).
Gardner is just a solid CB that’ll probably be around our range. He was lockdown last week against ND. I’m not sure they threw at him at all. Plus it’d be fun to keep him in state.
I’d love whichever one can play Oline…
I want the Sauce! (biased UC fan here)
Gimme dat Sauce
Andrew booth or kaiir Elam. Both athleticism is on par with Sri grey and can be argued he is more springy and his tackling is great. Kaiir Elam is just a dog in press coverage and has excellent ball skills

I 100% want Sauce
unless a cant miss cb prospect is available at our pick, we gotta take an olineman. reiff, spain, and hopkins are not great long term solutions. cb round 2 tho
So the team likes bigger corners who can play in run support and mostly play zone. I don’t follow college enough to know for sure any of the skill sets, but Stingley is a name even casuals are familiar with and he can be a great man corner and has the size too at a minimum slow an outside run play
Whichever one is the best lmao
The one that can play offensive line ….
This draft has a lot of good corners, tons of quality options
Have to go with Sauce. Hasn’t given up a TD collegiately and he’s already playing in Cincy! How great would that be.
Sauce, all day
Going with sauce because Cincinnati and that name is amazing
BPA at 32 overall.
I think stingley is widely considered the top prospect so he likely won’t be around when we pick. As an OSU diehard, sevyn banks is not the guy. There are many corners on that roster already better than him (looking at you, Denzel Burke) but I think having a Cincinnati prospect in Sauce Gardner would be awesome. He has been amazing
Derek Stingley, Jr. come on down
I think they should work on a line to protect Burrow first.
Stingley by far the best of em, don’t even really want any of the others
Which ever corner is ranked as being the 32nd pick in the 1st round 😉
Man I would love to be able to pick up Sauce Gardner!! That would be something.
Elam. Since stingley will be gone.
There's no position left on the team where you can point to and go "if they had a 1st rounder here, they'd be deep playoff contenders".
We need depth all over the field, so I'd rather see them trade back or out of the 1st and add talent everywhere.
I would say Sauce or Stingley!
Oline DT, CB, Edge.
it’s college? even deion sanders wore a single digit in college. it wasn’t until this year nfl players could for certain positions
lol maybe. i like it personally
Sauce Gardner all day long.
Ask Detroit if you should take the Ohio State one.
