I think we could have gotten him or a similar prospect at 46.

The reason I'm not too upset is that Hurst, Landry and several other studs are still on the board.  So could we have taken Hurst at #21 then Price at #46? Sure.  But if we get Hurst at 46, then I'm not complaining.

Still a long draft to go.  Also, we don't need a DB in the 2nd.  RG/RT, DT, and LB I would say are higher priority.  Granted I would be fine with a DB, but I highly doubt they'll get much playing time unless there's an injury...

Don’t hate price. Not sure he was BpA at 21. But we knew this was coming. Big upgrade at C so i can’t complain too much

They said they want to play more 3 safety looks

Did they actually say it tho?  I thought it was more like speculation when they brought Reid in for a free agent visit

I think I read it in a Hobson piece that the D coordinator wanted to play more 3 safety looks

Reading a bunch of press stuff on the Price pick, and damn you have to love his attitude.  I said it before the draft that he'd be a Whitworth like presence in the locker room when it comes to personality and leadership, and I still believe that.

Just hope his play can meet that same Whitworth level

After thinking it over, I expect this pick to be a good one. The Bengals have had a bad history of taking 1st round picks that have injury concerns though, but if he stays healthy, Price will be a nice solid piece to the OL. Him being able to play OG means that James Daniels could still be into play if he somehow slipped to 47. He seems like a very good run blocker, but will need to improve his pass protection. That's good news for Joe Mixon.

I'll say this about Price.  If he's an average starter or better, he has a C on his chest by year 3.

I imagine the leadership piece is why we had him and Ragnow so close. The leadership skills of both are supposed to be phenomenal. Guys like that elevate everyone around them.

i have a feeling Ronnie Harrison is gonna be a Bengal 

I'm good with this.  I've come around to drafting a S that can be used in 3 safety sets.  Anything that keeps Vinny Rey off the field...

In what world is a guy who never missed a game but got hurt lifting weights suddenly an injury concern?  ragnow was a late riser because he sustained a high ankle sprain that he chose to correct surgically in October.  That's not an injury concern either.  Ross, on the other hand, had a litany of lower body issues leading into his draft.  That is a concern.

 

Semantics, maybe.  But the narrative about Price couldn't be further from the truth.  I just happened to \want ragnow more, from the jump.
