04:02 PM ET 04.23 | Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis sounded suddenly upbeat about signing right tackle Andre Smith before the draft when he held his pre-draft news conference Tuesday. "I'm hopeful we can get a solution prior to (Thursday's) draft. I know Andre would like to get it done," Lewis said. "I think he'd feel better about things so he doesn't get lost without a chair." Asked to put it in weather report terms, Lewis smiled and said, "The sun is emerging maybe." But there were no other indications Tuesday that a deal was at hand. Having Smith in the fold Thursday night opens up a draft that is believed to be lacking in star power but deep in terms of solid NFL talent.
