Remember when the Bengals were so smart for looking a couple of years down the road? Well, here we are…down the road. As Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer wrote in 2015, Andrew Whitworth and Smith knew the team was looking aheadat their positions.
This is what the Bengals were looking out for at the time. The coaches knew Andre Smith was likely to walk that offseason. And with Whit up there in age, the team had to draft his eventual successor.
At the time, I was not a fan of Cedric Ogbuehi in round one.
