Geoff Hobson marches to his own tune as he has the Bengals taking a linebacker not named Devin White in his latest mock draft."Mock drafts are always a peculiar thing Cheap Kevin Huber Jersey , especially when conducted by one person. While all mock drafts are hypothetical, some mock drafts lose their sense of originality when they are done by a single person selecting for every team. It is much rarer to see a mock draft conducted by individuals for every team, but the results sometimes yield situations and scenarios that you just don’t get from individuals doing the whole things themselves. I’m not saying one is better than the other, but it is nice to break up the monotony.That is what Geoff Hobson of did recently when he participated in a mock draft where he only picked for the Bengals and used picks from various analysts and team reporters for the top 10 picks. The results landed a Devin you probably weren’t expecting in Bengal’s stripes.It should be noted that previously Hobson had Clemson defensive tackle Christian Wilkins going at 11, and he passed him up here. At the time, Hobson noted the Bengals had one of the league’s worst run defenses, so Wilkins would help with that. Even then you could make the argument that adding a defensive tackle wouldn’t fix the bigger issue with linebackers looking as incompetent as they did.It seems Hobson has at least started entertaining that reality by picking Bush. The Michigan product isn’t really viewed as a top-tier player in this draft, but he would indeed fill a huge need. He may not come in and be as great as many expect Devin White out of LSU to be, but he still has the potential to be a very good linebacker in the league if he keeps progressing in pass coverage.The real thing he has that the Bengals have been sorely missing from their linebackers is athleticism. Cincinnati has prioritized sure-tacklers in the recent drafts Darqueze Dennard Jersey , but the NFL has evolved past that. Gone are the days where you could get by with a linebacker who can’t cover. Offensive coordinators have easy ways to isolate their speedy running backs, athletic tight ends and even receivers on to linebackers in just about every coverage and formation. You need linebackers in today’s NFL who can play sideline-to-sideline and cover between the numbers. If you don’t have them, your defense is bound to get picked apart pretty quickly.In this mock Hobson didn’t simulate any trades, and this pretty much shows the worst case scenario for Cincinnati. White was taken by the Lions at eight, Jawaan Taylor followed him by being selected ninth overall by the Bills and there was only one quarterback taken in the top 10.The other player at a position of need Cincinnati should probably consider would have to beCody Ford out of Oklahoma to sure up the right tackle position. He has even started to be projected in the top 10 as his stock seems to be on the rise. If Cincinnati was open to defensive linemen, they’d have their choice of Ed Oliver, Clelin Ferrell or Wilkins. They’d even have their choice of the second quarterback in the draft, whoever that may be for them.It isn’t that Bush would be a bad pick, but if this particular situation came where Cincinnati was sitting there wanting a linebacker without White around Cheap Dre Kirkpatrick Jersey , they should trade back for whoever wants their choice at quarterback. The Dolphins (pick 13) and Washington (pick 15) would likely be bidding to get their quarterback of the future. Cincinnati would also likely still end up with the chance to take Bush in the teens while adding some ammo to help fill out the roster in Zac Taylor’s image. Broncos quarterback Case Keenum started the year as a turnover machine, with at least one per game for the first eight games and a total of 11. Over the past three games, Keenum has had none.鈥淚鈥檓 throwing it to our guys, not throwing it to the other team,” Keenum explained to reporters on Wednesday. “Who knew?鈥漇o how is that happening?鈥淛ust being smarter with the ball,” Keenum said. “It鈥檚 something I do. That鈥檚 why early on in the season I was frustrated. It鈥檚 tough. That鈥檚 something I pride myself on as a quarterback, giving our team a chance to win and not being the reason that we aren鈥檛 winning. Turnovers in this league is probably the biggest stat that really matters. You can look at wins and losses compared to turnover battle — who won it. It鈥檚 very important for me and something I work on every day. That鈥檚 something I think about every day. Every decision I make, I know the ball is the most important thing on the field. I鈥檝e got it in my hands every play, so I know every decision I make is that important. That鈥檚 why I grind Geno Atkins Jersey Limited , that鈥檚 why I work, and we鈥檝e gotten better across the board, offensive line, running backs and receivers. We鈥檙e all on the same page, getting better, working each week and communicating. We feel better with the offense and it鈥檚 just a lot of different things, a lot of factors.”The end result is a two-game winning streak — one that easily could have been three — with wins over Philip Rivers and Ben Roethlisberger.鈥淚 would be lying if I didn鈥檛 say I liked playing the underdog,” Keenum said, “that I didn鈥檛 mind not getting the respect. I really don鈥檛 think anybody else鈥檚 opinion matters but what鈥檚 going in our locker room. I have a lot of respect for what you guys do Dre Kirkpatrick Jersey , but there鈥檚 a lot of things that go on outside this building that for us, we don鈥檛 pay attention to. We get after it and we work, and we trust each other. We trust each other鈥檚 opinion and we trust the coaches鈥?opinions. That鈥檚 what matters for us. But it feels good to prove people wrong every once in a while.”Of course, the opinions regarding the Broncos were justified by a 3-6 start to the season, which included a slide that saw the Broncos lose six of seven games.They now have a chance to get to .500 — and to contend for an unlikely playoff berth.If that’s going to happen, Keenum needs to keep throwing it to his guys, not throwing it to the other team.
