The Bengals have the 5th pick and no need for a QB. They could use OL and WR help which I assume they take one if they don’t move. The draft is very deep as WR.

What players or picks do you think we could offer to entice the Bengals to give us that #5?

Armstead? Ramcyck? Peat? Lattimore? One of these and our 1st? Two of these? Two of these and our first?

Do we want the 3rd 4th or 5th rated QB? For example would you be happy if we traded Armstead and our 1st for Trey Lance?

Btw, the amount it would take to move up to 5, just throw that at the Seahawks for Russ. At least you know what you are getting with him. Make it happen Loomis

With Mike Brown as the owner, president, and GM of the Bengals they haven't changed their spots in a VERY long time and I don't see it happening any time soon!!

If teams consistently picking in the top 10 every year, then that team has major issues. Draft are fun and game for one day getting to be first in line for the best college players. But I rather be number 32 every year.

We have a year to see if we have our next franchise QB on board. Next year we have a lot of draft picks and if we suck this year, those picks will be higher up and more valuable to use to trade up. I don’t see it this year.

Why move up to #5?
If we wanted one of the 5 QBs, that spot would assure we would get at least one, assuming we really liked the one who might be available.

Probably have to be a day of draft trade to make sure the guy you love is there. Trey Lance or perhaps Zach Wilson if he slides or possibly Justin Fields or Mac Jones depending on what NYJ and ATL does.

plus next years projected QB class is very weak. Might be now or never

If we were to move up in the 1st round, cost aside because I think Loomis & Co could make this work, I forsee us moving up more in the 16th place range. There will more likely be 1 of 2 possible QBs that drop that far, or a few LBs & DLs, & CBs, & OLinemen that they could really value that are worth the price to secure for their vision of the team moving forward. Could be more, I haven't looked at the Draft class extensively yet, just feel this is more aligned with our draft strategy, again if the team sees the value there, and of course finding a willing trade partner. I believe 16 is the area we will see a 1st rd move if we see one.

With Payton calling the shots, I would trust him if he were to make a big trade up for the 5th pick.... but it will cost a lot ... Ram , 2022 1st, and a 3rd somewhere 2021-2023....
In my opinion, we would be foolish to trade Ram for unproven players. The man is a rock on our offensive line.

We will not, should not trade Ramszyck for any reason. Ram is a key building piece for this team. He will be moved to left tackle
when we move on from Terron Armstead, which is soon. Then Ram will be an All Pro for the next ten to fifteen years.
Never to mention this again.
Now to trade up, we only have to move up 10-15 spots for a player we need. For that I would trade Michael Thomas to be in position to select
the top rated CB, DL, LB, or WR, the BPA.
In Ireland/Loomis/Payton I Trust.

To be honest I would stay at 28.
The reason ?
QB, Kyle Trask ?
Only because, maybe, Maybe, Jameis Winston doesn't work for us.
Next year is weak in QBs.
Where/When is the next QB who plays a SEC type talent as a league, and passes for a 72+% year,
with a great touchdown to interception rate, finishes fourth in the Heisman Trophy voting.
I still maintain that our needs by priority order is CB, DL, LB, QB.
A player like Kyle Trask may be the BPA for the next couple of years sitting at 28 this year.
This year the Draft is deep in CB, DL, LB.
Just saying.

I agree was just guessing at what the cost would be for the Bengals to pass on the top tackle in this years draft, I know some think they want chase but doubt that happens, thinking they just hoping none of the top 4 take the Oregon tackle so they hyping chase up
