OL Starting lineup

He'll get another shot.  I'm not sure that Hopkins was obviously better than him, but he's played well enough I feel glad for him to get this shot.

Price's foot still a lingering problem.  Once healed, I feel like he takes the job back or from Miller

Sad in one way, happy in others.  Really happy because it shows this staff isn't going to die on the basis of a guy's draft pedigree.  Sad in that the pick is looking worse and worse.

Also, i feel like if the line can stay healthy, this will be a middle of the road line.  Which is a huge step up from previous years.  

Also i don't feel like they're going to stay healthy.  So it's probably moot.

Price hasn't been 100% since he got hurt at the combine.  Granted that most linemen have to play with lingering issues, but Price has been banged up in several different places in the last 12 calendar months.

I'm good with the starting 5 considering what the Bengals have to work with.  My hope like others is that when Price is fully healthy that he can win the starting RG position over Miller.  Long term I think he's a better guard than center...

And Hopkins was pretty good there last year.  So why rock the boat?

I agree with this. Kinda the same with Jordan being better at G than C. If the run game struggles to get anything going I’m sure we will see more changes to the lineup.

Price should be the long term RG, once healthy.  If Williams is  a stud, and we keep Hopkins long term, we draft a RT in the first and LBs in rounds 2-4 next draft.  The line would be set for the foreseeable future.

QB in the first, but a RT after that sounds good...

If we are in the top 3-4, then yeah.  I hope we aren't.  And if they aren't 1-2, I'm fine with trading back for the tackle (Thomas, Georgia) and picking up a future 1st in 2021 to stockpile ammo to go after Lawrence.

Whoever is picking first is taking Lawrence regardless. They aren’t trading back

I'm ok with that plan, but if we have the OL you're predicting we won't be able to get Lawrence, because he's going #1 overall.

Next years draft has Tua, Herbert, and...Cole McDonald.  Tua will go #1 overall, and Herbert shortly after that.  I think it's time the Bengals started being aggressive and TRADE UP in the first round to get their QBOTF, instead of not wanting to trade a pick that we'll use on a backup LB...

I see us with a pick in the teens next draft. So RT and LB are the more likely picks than QB. Since we have very few picks next year I highly doubt we are trading up. I still think Cordy would be better at RT anyway.
