Yeah those are real bad hands... Watch his tape he makes some great catches... with his hands!

The best thing about him is his speed, and his awareness of the field and players around him trying to tackle him. I would be ecstatic if the Broncos got him actually.

Funny because I watch lots of tape and on TAPE and even at the combine you see he catches with his body. Funny you mention his stats and equate that to good hands. If you watched tape, you would see a RB in the slot who catches short to intermediate stuff. I'm not denying he's not explosive, that's not the argument, but you know he has sick hands, you watch tape, what would I know?

It's ok. One thing I think I do well is evaluate talent. With Swoope I see an explosive athlete who's good with the ball in his hands. He's not great catching, he relies on his body. I just prefer a more sure handed WR in a Peyton Manning offense.

Glad to see that Terry Hawthorne got way overdrafted. Plays like an UDFA, had a great combine though.

I love my draft so far. Tennessee's interior o-line last year was just awful, and their d-line was disappointing. I was able to snag two of my top guys for each side of the line.

10 - Bjoern Werner, DE, FSU
55 - John Jenkins, DT, Georgia
70 - Justin Pugh, G, Syracuse
85 - Brian Winters, G, Kent State
97 -

Winters was on my short list at 86, so glad I am getting out here.

Now, who Really wants the next pick!

What is sad, is that you have the pick right behind me and could have swapped for 6th rounder or you could have brought a better deal to the table. I was listening still, knew you both had heard about the offers, and well his offer was better, significantly.

Hope he does not get your guy, but hey there are a lot of fish in the sea this go around. Good luck on 87!

Solid Pick bro, best non QB available by far on my board. I was not sure who you were targeting, but your putting starters on the field for sure IMHO.

Now, I need to start dealing here pretty soon....

Criminal Bengals 2013 Draft

#18 -- Alec Ogletree, LB
#36 -- DeAndre Hopkins, WR
#37 -- Jonathan Cyprien, S
#86 -- Giovani Bernard, RB

Still to come. . .

5.21
6.22
7.22

First of all, I feel really good about this draft. Regardless of me having them in this mock, I think they all have the potential of being extremely good pros in the NFL. They are Day 1 contributors in my mind and some of the best playmakers at their positions in the entire draft. As mentioned earlier, they are all in my Top 50 and in a deep draft like this, I think that is incredible to be able to snag them -- even if I was lucky enough to have the Raiders second rounder because they were silly enough to trade for Old Man Palmer.

I was surprised that RB has been an after thought in this draft. I do have Le'Veon Bell as my highest rated guy (barely), but Bernard was right behind him. Lacy was not one of my top guys and quite frankly, do not think he is going to be that great of a professional. I really thought that some team would have scooped up Giovani by now -- especially teams who need a RB that can also catch the ball out of the backfield. I really don't get how he fell this far. I thought he had a good combine, despite being smaller than advertised.

IMHO -- I got four starters and have enough picks left (and hopefully a compensatory) to end up getting some depth on our roster. There are still a lot of GREAT PLAYERS on board so there should be some guys left in the fifth round. Don't count out the Bengals trying to make another move up for a high target of theirs if the price is right.

You had 2 thirds and I did not see them until late. I would have dealt with those.

However, I hope he did not pick your guy. His offer was far better than your final offer and you never even checked.

Probably not. I think we have this guy evaluated differently. However, you are up and he is all yours....

In the end, it worked out for you.

He is by far the best pass rusher on FSU..
