2009 NFL Draft Bengals Predictions

I did this post about a month ago scouring some different websites to see who they have the Bengals selecting with their #6 pick in the 2009 NFL Draft. With the signing of Tank Johnson it would be safe to say that the Bengals will more than likely not draft a DT with the #6 pick. Most sites have the Bengals going OT with their pick. Who would be available is what is being debated. Most seem to think that Andre Smith will be the guy. I would venture to say that the Bengals would be very happy to see Monroe, Oher, or Jason Smith fall to them at the #6. Here is an updated list:

Eugene Monroe, OT, Virginia (, Draft King)
BJ Raji, DT, BC (NFLDraftdog)
Michael Oher, OT, Mississippi (NFLdraftsite)
Andre Smith, OT, Alabama (Shawn Zobel, FFdraftsite, ProFootball Talk, Mel Kiper)
Brian Orakpo, DE, Texas (
Jason Smith, OT, Baylor (CBS)

I'm afraid to say it, but I think we're going to end up with Andre Smith.

It sounds like Jason Smith and Monroe will be gone before the 6th pick and Oher is a mid-first round talent (which still isn't bad).

Adding Andre the Giant could be potentially great for us or that bust that everyone will say they saw coming three years down the line.
