This is the who we 'will' pick thread.
Just sayin'.......
I'll see you on this thread in 3 weeks then!!

Bumping the challenge up with a week to go.Make your draft prediction (remember-who you think we'll pick, not who you want).The winner can be deemed the most on the same wavelength as MB & ML.Good luck !

Points to be awarded as follows:
Right Player/Right Round - 20 pts
Right Player/Wrong Round- 15 pts
Right Position/Right Round -10 pts
Right Position/Wrong Round -5 pts

My final prediction:

1. Patrick Peterson CB

6. John Clay RB
7. Justin Boren OG
7. Derek Hall OT

On another note which has little to do with the Bengals......

Isn't it a little annoying that when the Bengals and most other teams are getting ready to pick players high in the first round, Bill Bellichick is thinking of trading down or will get a player that usually produces better than most of the other picks in the top ten even if he picks 30th or lower in the first.

Why can't teams take a good look at what he does. It's quite simple. Bellichick picks scheme players. Players that fit his system and he knows exactly who those players will be and where and when they will fit.....

That's why he's such a good coach

Oddly enough teams do look at it and try to copy what he does. Not all teams of course, as some have their own philosophy, but when a guy is that successful he will be copied.

Plus he does make some mistakes. Not a massive number, but he's not perfect.

Josh McDaniels is a great example of someone who tried to emulate him and failed badly.

You're right - it doesn't always work. Look at the historically terrible passing yards allowed for the early part of last season. He drafts players for schemes, but also those who can learn.

I also think Belichick doesn't teeach his young co-ordinator padawans everything and he doesn't need to cos he's also GM which is quite unique. He knows these guys are gonna go off and face him one day and I'm sure he keeps some cards very close to his chest. Or maybe he does and those guys are so arrogant that they go off and think they can tweak his strategies.

Whenever I've heard NFL scouts whinge it's more often than not about coaching staff falling in love with a player who doesn't fit the scheme. It's why teams who constantly changes schemes struggle so badly for ages - round pegs/square holes and all that.

Look at the way Green Bay do things. They stay with their guys, they stay with their schemes, they work through the draft. Contrast that to Washington. It's easy to blueprint NFL success, but not so easy to implement it.

It's the best way for sure. Pittsburgh, Indy, New England. Sustained success comes from stability.

So you're saying Washington don't have any continuity in that department or the Raiders? ;0p

You're saying that Davis and Snyder don't want to be terrible? That's a new one on me.

Final results for the predictor challenge (only 3 had a go) are:

1. erenmus XIX - 50 pts
2. me - 45
3. Lancashire Bengal - 40 (only predicting the 1st 2 rounds -both bang on)

Well done erenmus XIX - you have earned a 'no prize' and the (dubious) honour of being the most in tune with the thinking of Mike Brown & ML.

lool what an honour!
Well it was a crazy draft so many QBs went which weren't meant to go so early and it kinda caught everyone by surprise, A.J Green seemed to be the consensus pick in all the mocks for us and Dalton was our best fit thats for sure just very glad we didnt reach for a QB.

Could you imagine if the bengals took Atlanta's offer! We would all have ended up with 10 points lol!

But im happy I am on the the same wavelength as Mike Brown, or am I?
