Owner Mike Brown and coach Marvin Lewis aren't known for consistent draft maneuvers, but this year is a special case for two reasons:
- It's widely hailed as one of the deepest drafts in recent years. It won't cost as much to move around, and moving down won't result in a major drop in quality.
- Nine picks aren't going to make such a talented roster, and may just get stolen by others off the practice squad.
This isn't to suggest the Bengals will or should make a move this year. But the following deals—based loosely on Draft Countdown's value chart—are certainly within the realm of possibility and worth consideration.
