“I think Dwayne is going to be a franchise guy later on, once he gets the offense rolling, once he gets complete control of what he’s doing in whatever program, whatever franchise, whatever type of offense he’s in,” Price said, via SiriusXM NFL Radio. “He’s going to be phenomenal. And I really look forward to watching him develop as he gets up in the NFL. Again, I’d love to see him close to home in Cincinnati with me whenever, you know, Andy (Dalton) decides to hang it up. But it’s going to be great. He’s going to be a very good player.”
Albert Breer says that the Bengals “very much could be in play” for a quarterback at No. 11 overall.
Breer notes that Andy Dalton’s in a contract year and ownership may want something to “jolt a flat-lining fanbase.“
If the Bengals don’t take a quarterback, Breer mentions Michigan LB Devin Bush as a name to keep an eye on.
