Steven Ridley’s 2018 NFL Mock Draft

With the twenty first pick in the 2018 NFL Mock Draft, the Cincinatti Bengals select:

James Daniels; Center from the University of Iowa.

Leave it to Mike Brown to continuously short change “Who Dey Nation” time after time. Last year, signing Vontez Burfict to a contract extension was considered a great move. To do that though, Brown elected to let a top 10 guard in Kevin Zeitler walk in free agency; him becoming a Cleveland Browns player and Cleveland now having a young and talented offensive line as a result with Joel Bitonio, J.C. Tretter and Zeitler himself. This year? Allow Russel Bodine to leave; one of the league’s up and coming centers in a time where interior offensive line play is not very good. Luckily for Mr. Brown and Marvin Lewis, this draft features a very deep and talented interior offensive lineman class. One such person is James Daniels. While it is true that Iowa offensive lineman do come in a bit lighter than those of the South Bend, their techniques and scheme versatility are just as efficient. Add his length and his great athleticism and the Bengals have solved one major issue but still have two other major areas to fix.

About Steven Ridley

A Canadian loving gamer and analytical American Football fan; Steven has turned to the Black 'n Gold since the days of seeing Troy Amuna Polamalu way back in 2008. Since then, he has been getting more engaged with the sport. In addition of studying the aspects of the game, college prospect scouting is one of his favorite pastimes.

    strength in the world means very little if your accuracy is not very good. Knowing this however is why Josh Allen is the number one pick as Dorsey is using 2018 as a redshirt year for Allen to learn the do’s and do not’s of the NFL. Once 2019 is here is where Dorsey and the Browns will hopefully see the fruition of a year’s worth of experience.

    IF – AND IT’S A BIG “IF” – Mason Rudolph has a big day versus Baltimore the Steelers may have found theit franchise QB and it isn’t KP8. Mason’s been a hard luck guy since he was deafted and Ben was “insulted.” Ben is no rocket scientist but his physical gifts, history and hope combined to make Rudolph an afterthought for years.. Staing ready to play plus maturity may have combined to make MASON THE successor to Ben the Steelers truly need. If so, it settles a big question for the Pittsburgh Steelers.
