06:57 AM ET 07.24 | The offensive line may have been a strength of the 2013 NFL draft, but success there won't likely register the way it will at the "skill" positions. The position that may be the hardest for a rookie to come in and start right away is wide receiver. ... Still, the Rams' Tavon Austin should be an instant threat lining up at slot receiver. Both DeAndre Hopkins (Houston) and Corrdarelle Patterson (Vikings) are talented players but both were early entries and will need time to adjust to the pro game. In Patterson's case he only played one year at the major college level. ... The player who may put up the best stats of the first-round offensive rookies is Cincinnati's Tyler Eifert. The Bengals already have a good tight end in Jermaine Gresham. Gresham is more of a "Y" type tight end while Eifert can play as an "H" back type or in-line at the "Y."

It all comes back to the QB... and I expect Andy Dalton to be better this season.

He's going to play at the Y?

I've heard it's fun to play at the Y-M-C-A.....

If the combine means anything the guy should be solid.

Whew! I thought it was about a prison escape.

The scary one would be New England's Breakout TE.

T.Eifert is gonna have a great yr. if he can stay healthy, and so will the 2nd round pick this yr. in Giovani Bernard.....Bengals fans will remember the James Brooks days and hoping Bernard can be that same type of back.

It isn't change until it exists over a period of time that supports and sustains the "change." Unless and until it is a blip on the screen, an anomaly.

Well, I did see this: If it is change, it is small change, nickel and dimes.

Cornerback Adam Jones is facing an Aug. 19 hearing on an assault charge, just his most recent event.

Right tackle Andre Smith was charged with attempting to carry a loaded firearm into the Atlanta
airport in January.

Middle linebacker Rey Maualuga was cited for misdemeanor assault in February 2012 at a downtown bar.

I put my money on DeAndre Hopkins (Houston).

Adam Jones was struck in the head with a beer bottle after he refused to have his picture took with a goofy drunk chick. He shoved her away the video tape of the incident clearly shows he did not assult her.

Mauluga charges where never pressed and where dismissed.

Andre Smith I don't understand what he was thinking.....but then again he did go to school at Alabama.

Then again the New York Giants have been angels in the past ....like you say it isn't change until it exist of a period of time.

Coke snorten linebackers, WR who shoots himself in a bar , a RB who had multiple charges of Assult and Sexual Battery, another WR who like conterfiting and money laundering, just to name a few.

LT is back on the playing roster? Super. We need linebackers bad.

There is not enough time to go through the history of the Bengals and crime. Would make Gone With The Wind look like a short story.


Stay with the present roster and begin again. Mike Brown disagrees with you, that is why he wants to do that silly " Hard Time," because he knows the perception is still there. It was an earned perception that will take time to change.

Hillbilly- your bengals should do very well this year. they are getting better at a good time, the other division teams are in a reset mode. the whole AFC is a little down this year it appears. Houston has to win something before I give them too much credit. Denver and any team coached by BB will be good.

I had a problem and went to my dentist, and he said "I see you've been eating at the 'Y'. True.

That was yesterday in Iraq. 500 terrorist escaped when guards opened the gates and let them go, so watch out for a Bengal named Mohammed.

Cincinnati is the sister NFL city to Oakland CA.

Cincinnati would like to thank big sister Oakland for trading for Carson Palmer and giving up so much, they would also like to thank them for their ex Head Coach and Hue Jackson.

This team should do well this year. Definitely a contender in the AFC. I think its them, Denver or the Texans.
