A look at the latest NFL Draft rankings as the big day is closing in fast."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections #BITESIZEFilm RoomRoster Transactions and ContractsOrange & Black InsiderSalary Cap And CBANFL DraftMel Kiper has Devin White and Devin Bush in top 10 of latest big boardNew [url=http://www.thebengalsclub.com/jonah-williams-jersey/]Black Jonah Williams Jersey[/url] ,74commentsWhat happens if both Devins are off the board when the Bengals pick?EDTShareTweetShareShareMel Kiper has Devin White and Devin Bush in top 10 of latest big boardBrian Spurlock-USA TODAY SportsThe 2019 NFL Draft class has been defensive heavy at the top from the moment it was finalized in mid-January. As we inch closer and closer to April 25th, it’s become clear as to which names will populate the initial picks of the first round, and front seven defenders look like they will dominate first third of the round.For the Bengals, who still have notable needs at linebacker and on the defensive line, this puts them in an interesting situation. Cincinnati’s biggest needs align with where the draft has the strongest talent, but will they watch as that talent gets plucked right before their eyes, or will the right player fall into their laps? It’s looking like that player will not be linebacker Devin White, who appears to be a lock for the top 10 picks — if not the top five. In Mel Kiper’s latest top 25 big board, White is locked in as his fourth best prospect.Sure, fine. White is likely out of the discussion for the Bengals’ pick at 11th overall. It would take a Laremy Tunsil event to see him fall beyond the first handful of picks. Joining White in Kiper’s top five are defensive end Nick Bosa, defensive tackle Quinnen Williams, edge rusher Josh Allen and quarterback Dwayne Haskins. Outside the top five [url=http://www.thebengalsclub.com/jonah-williams-jersey/]Youth Jonah Williams Jersey[/url] , things get a little less clear. With White presumably off the board, two names have surfaced as ideal fits for the Bengals in defensive tackle Ed Oliver and linebacker Devin Bush. As it happens, both players find themselves ranked just inside the top 10 after previously being ranked lower. The NFL combine is mainly responsible for Oliver solidifying himself as a top-10 player and for Bush seemingly ascending up everyone’s boards. Bush specifically exceeded expectations at Indianapolis, while Oliver essentially confirmed his freakish athleticism. Oliver may validate this ranking and end up going right before the Bengals’ pick, but Bush doing so still seems more unlikely than not. Regardless, Kiper is still well connected around the league and his board usually reflects where he’s hearing players are being ranked. Quarterback Kyler Murray, tight end T.J. Hockenson and defensive end Montez Sweat round out Kiper’s top 10, and the odds of all 10 of these players being the first 10 picked when draft night ensues are slim. The draft is crazy and unpredictable, but the Bengals are typically the opposite the closer the draft gets. Oliver and Bush figure to be top targets for the team that had the 32nd ranked defense from 2018, and landing either would go a long way into improving that ranking in 2019. KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Marvin Lewis flipped on tape of the Kansas City Chiefs this week and saw Tyreek Hill moving all over the field, Kareem Hunt bulldozing for first downs [url=http://www.cincinnatibengalsteamonline.com/a.j.-green-jersey]A.J. Green Jersey[/url] , Travis Kelce making acrobatic catches, and Patrick Mahomes delivering the ball to all of them.Then he was asked what worries him most about facing the Chiefs on Sunday night."Everything," Lewis said, adding a halfhearted laugh. Yes, the banged-up Bengals (4-2) and their struggling defense are headed to Arrowhead Stadium for a high-profile showdown against quite possibly the most dynamic offense in the NFL.They are also doing it with a handful of guys ailing or injured, notably in a secondary that will have to find a way to slow Hill and Kelce. All those injuries nearly crippled the Bengals last week, when Pittsburgh drove the length of the field in the fourth quarter for the winning touchdown."It makes it harder, yeah," Bengals defensive end Carlos Dunlap said, "but we have 1A and 1B. Everybody is trained to get in the game because you're always one play away. You never know when it is."Injuries aren't an excuse, either.""We've got guys down. I believe in those (backup) guys," Bengals cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick said. "I feel we've got all the tools [url=http://www.cincinnatibengalsteamonline.com/clark-harris-jersey]http://www.cincinnatibengalsteamonline.com/clark-harris-jersey[/url] , even the backup guys, to beat this team."The Chiefs (5-1), who are coming off their first loss last Sunday night in New England, know all about being hurt. They remain without injured safeties Eric Berry, Daniel Sorensen and Armani Watts, top pass rusher Justin Houston and two starters on the offensive line.They still have Mahomes, though. Not to mention all his weapons.That group struggled in the first half against the Patriots, but adjustments at halftime opened up things. Mahomes wound up throwing four TD passes, three to Hill, and the Chiefs nearly outscored Tom Brady and Co. in what became an entertaining shootout."Everyone is still in great spirits," Mahomes said after his first loss as a starting quarterback, which came seven games into his NFL career. "We know there's a lot of season left. There's going to be ups and downs [url=http://www.cincinnatibengalsteamonline.com/randy-bullock-jersey]http://www.cincinnatibengalsteamonline.com/randy-bullock-jersey[/url] , but you have to know that's going to happen. It's how you respond that matters."Mahomes said the vibe all week has been positive, and that the loss to New England only served to embolden a team with Super Bowl aspirations. After all, the Chiefs trailed most of the way, on the road and in prime time, and nearly came back to steal a victory."We finished hard. We fought every play," Chiefs wide receiver Sammy Watkins said. "You saw the grit on the sideline and we're here to build on that. You're not going to lead every game 28-0."As the Bengals try to slow down Kansas City, here are some things to know:BANGED-UP BENGALSThere were no fewer than 15 players listed on Cincinnati's initial injury report this week, and six of those didn't participate at all to start the week. That included three defensive players in cornerback Darqueze Dennard, linebacker Nick Vigil and safety Shawn Williams.FLEX AND POSEThe Chiefs' high-flying offense and the Bengals' strong start resulted in the game being flexed by NBC to Sunday night. It was originally supposed to be a noon CDT kickoff."Every game is a big stage. This is the NFL," Chiefs defensive tackle Chris Jones said, dismissing the fact they're in prime time for the second straight week. "You want to play every game like it's your last."ON THE HUNTThe Chiefs have leaned on Hunt late in games to protect leads, but he was a big part of their comeback a week ago. Hunt ran for 80 yards on just 10 carries and caught five passes for 105 yards and a score. He also was overthrown down the middle of the field on what could have been another long TD reception."You can't miss those when you play really good teams [url=http://www.cincinnatibengalsteamonline.com/mark-walton-jersey]http://www.cincinnatibengalsteamonline.com/mark-walton-jersey[/url] ," Mahomes said.BLITZBURGH HANGOVERThe Bengals' 28-21 loss to Pittsburgh wiped out much of their early momentum and evened things in the AFC North. It was another stunning loss against their biggest nemesis — the Steelers have won seven straight in the series, including a comeback win in the 2015 playoffs. They know they can't afford another bad showing in Kansas City as they approach the midway point of the season."I would say we do have a chip on our shoulders," defensive end Jordan Willis said.WHAT ABOUT BURFICTIn his second game back from his latest NFL suspension, Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict was on the field for 84 percent of the defense's plays against Pittsburgh and finished second with eight tackles and two passes deflected. He also was in the middle of several altercations, trading words with Ben Roethlisberger, stepping over James Conner in the end zone, and hitting Antonio Brown in the head with his forearm after a reception.Burfict has been suspended three times by the league and was ejected from a game last season. The Bengals need him to continue making an impact on games, without the drama."Vontaze can be as great as he wants to be," Dunlap said.
