Bengals freezing cold draft takes: From John Ross to Leon Hall teaches a valuable lesson

The NFL Draft is a time for everyone to voice their opinion on draft prospects’ futures. Some players look like they will translate to the NFL easier than others, but that doesn’t always happen.

To celebrate a whole new crop of takes that are bound to get cold over time this weekend, I’ll be looking back at some of my coldest takes including going back to one player who taught me a very valuable lesson about the draft.

It is usually important to try and approach the draft with some optimism. That has usually led me away from some of the takes that took a few seasons to get cold like Tyler Boyd needing a few seasons to show he is one of the best slot receivers in the NFL.
