Imagine this, if there is football in 2011 (Please Lord, let there be) I think we can have one of the best offensive lines in the NFL. Well, we will as long as we draft Vladimir Ducasse out of The University Of Massachussets in the upcoming draft. Notice how I said 2011? Well Thats because Ducasse will not be ready in 2010, at least in my opinion. It is certainly possible, but the transition to the NFL may just be too drastic. He will make a hell of a left guard for us, and should be available in the 2nd round and perhaps the 3rd; Andrew Whitworth (Who I believe by that time will be a Pro Bowl left tackle) will help his transtion even more. Kyle Cooke will still be the pro center we need, he'll do well in our division and keep the line flowing smoothly. And Andre Smith will still be the monster No. 6 overall pick at right tackle, keeping Carson healthy and giving any running back 4 yards. And then there's the right guard postition, Bobbie Williams has been ultra solid his whole Bengal career and its sad that it's almost over; but the truth is he'll be 36 in 2011. There's a monster that has only been unleashed in a few pre-season game being taught by Bobby Williams as you read this. His name is Jason Shirley, all 6-5 335 pounds of muscle on him can definately anchor him to become solid, but he also has the tenacity to become great. He's a former defensive tackle so he could have the ability to be nasty and still read what an opposing DT is going to do, just giving him another edge. So those are my wishes, an ultra O-line along with some more weapons and Zimmer as DC, and we'll be the 2011 NFL champions. Hey, it'll be two in a row, just a little easier! Who Dey all
