However, some frustrations have seem to boiled over from the draft with fans upset over the Bengals’ haul. It is true that the Bengals had some picks that were shocking, but there is still some overreaction taking place. After all, none of these guys have even stepped on the field yet.One draft expert really did love how the Bengals draft set out. ESPN’s Mel Kiper gave the Bengals one of the highest grades of any team this year. Here is some of what he had to say in regard to the Bengals 2019 class:Grade A-Kiper hits the nail on the head with this not being a sexy draft class. The Bengals passed up flashier players like quarterback Dwayne Haskins or a pass rusher at no. 11 to address their struggling offensive line.Cincinnati feels like they got a future left tackle White Trayveon Williams Jersey , which some experts disagree with, but at worst they probably have a career right tackle or guard, which is still something the Bengals desperately needed.There is no question though that how you feel about this draft coincides directly with your feelings about the Bengals passing on Haskins at No. 11, seemingly reaching for tight end Drew Sample and their three fourth round picks in general. How those three areas play out going forward will make or break this draft.The only team to get a higher grade than the Bengals were the Colts, who really did crush the draft themselves by completely laying down a foundation for their defense going forward. Three other teams received an A- including the Patriots, Browns and Washington. Obviously, anytime your team is being mentioned in the same breath as New England as far as draft accomplishments it is a good things. It is interesting to see Cleveland included as well. They are the other team in the AFC North with an emerging young nucleus http://www.thebengalslockerroom.com/auth...ngs-jersey , and depending on how Andy Dalton plays under Taylor, these two teams could be competing for the AFC North for awhile.It is pretty hard to grade a draft right after it happens though. Sure, we could try and determine who reached for what players based off months of mock drafts and arbitrary values, but what really matters is how these players develop. If these guys aren’t on the team in four years, then it is hard to be proud of an A- grade days after the draft has completed. When the Rams hired Sean McVay as their head coach, they teamed him with a veteran defensive coordinator who had head coaching experience in Wade Phillips.The Bengals are expected to hire Rams quarterbacks coach Zac Taylor as their head coach and it appears they are considering a similar arrangement when it comes to their top defensive coach. According to multiple reports, Jack Del Rio is a leading candidate for the job.Del Rio was 25-23 as Raiders head coach before being ousted in favor of Jon Gruden after the 2017 season and he went 68-71 in eight-plus seasons as the head man in Jacksonville. He also served as the Broncos defensive coordinator from 2012-2014 and his successor in that post was Phillips.Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Bengals may interview Raiders quarterbacks coach Brian Callahan for their offensive coordinator opening. Callahan joined the Raiders in 2018 Renell Wren Jersey 2019 , so there was no overlap with Del Rio in Oakland.There’s also been a report that they are interested in having Brian’s father Bill, who coached Taylor at the University of Nebraska, on the staff. Bill Callahan is currently the Washington offensive line coach.
