#Bengals do work in 2014 draft
by Eric Mathews,posted May 12 2014 10:20AM
April and I discussed the draft from many different angles on Sunday. What did your team do, and what other teams across the league? Well, here's my take, who knows? None of us will really know if the draft was a success for a team till about five years down the road.
Recently I've been watching the NFL Network and I will occasionally catch their draft specials. Revisiting the 2004 draft or the 1994 draft, and it's always pretty fun to watch and say "Wow, what were they thinking?" This is every draft though, it never changes, which makes it fun.
The Cincinnati Bengals used their picks to address some issues. Their second pick, which came in the 2nd round, was an exciting one, Jeremy Hill the running back out of LSU. I was fortunuate enough to speak with Jeremy about the draft his experience and his thoughts on the Bengals. Take a listen to my interview with Jeremy that originally aired on Sunday Mornings with Eric.
Strong showing against #1 Miss St, brings the Cats some respect. What is notable from this defeat is the attention Patrick Towles will recieve after out dueling a Hesiman hopeful.
