Dalton and Green the Benglas QB and WR of the Future

Yahoo! Sports says that the Bengals had a solid draft, picking up their QB and WR in the future with Andy Dalton and A.J. Green:

The Bengals came into the draft needing a starting quarterback, No. 1 wide receiver and help at offensive line and safety. They ended up filling all of those needs.

With the selection of Andy Dalton and A.J. Green, the Bengals have turned the page on offense with their future quarterback-receiver combination. Unlike 2003, when Carson Palmer sat for a season, head coach Marvin Lewis has not hid the fact that this time Dalton is expected to compete immediately for the starting spot.

Of the eight picks, five went on offense as Lewis is giving new offensive coordinator Jay Gruden new weapons to build around his West Coast system. The reason why Dalton was Gruden’s top quarterback is because he feels Dalton can come in and run his offense without having to make any changes. He also got a possible starter at guard in the fourth round in Clint Boling.

On defense, the Bengals didn’t address the line but did get a developmental linebacker and a playmaking safety.

Overall, it was the third straight year that Lewis and company has had a solid draft.
