AFC Notes: Bengals, Dolphins, Titans
- According to Tony Pauline, the Bengals gave Washington WR John Ross a clean bill of health and he’s in the conversation for them at No. 9 overall pick.
- Pauline says that the Bengals’ medical staff have “given the green light” in regards to Ross’ knees and their team’s front office thinks the addition of Ross could make their offensive attack “unstoppable.”
- Oklahoma RB Joe Mixon has been linked to the Bengals in the past, and Pauline says that his recent settlement of the civil lawsuit against him could make Cincinnati more willing to draft him in the second round.
- Tony Pauline of DraftAnalyst.com has spoken with several sources who believe the Dolphins are “locked in on” Western Kentucky G Forrest Lamp in round one.
- Although, Pauline says that even if a highly rated pass rusher is still available to the Dolphins at No. 22 overall, they may pass on Lamp and target a guard in the second round.
- Two guards worth watching for Miami in the second round are Dorian Johnson and Isaac Asiata, according to Pauline.
- Jim Wyatt of the Titans’ official site expects the Titans to draft an offensive playmaker with one of their first-round picks but isn’t sure that they would consider doubling up and taking another offensive player in round one.
- According to Wyatt, a total of 28 draft prospects has visited the Titans’ facilities, not including local pro day participants.
- Wyatt likes the idea of the Titans trading back to acquire a wide receiver and a second-round pick and he wouldn’t be surprised to see Tennessee draft multiple cornerbacks this year.
- If the team is unable to land cornerback targets in the draft, Wyatt doesn’t rule out the possibility that the Titans could show interest in Seahawks CB Richard Sherman or Patriots CB Malcolm Butler.
- Although Wyatt likes Michigan TE Jake Butt, he isn’t sure the Titans would be willing to take him, given that he’s working his way back from a serious knee injury.
