There wasn’t much intrigue about whether the Bengals would hire Brian Callahan as their offensive coordinator because Raiders coach Jon Gruden revealed Cincinnati’s plans for his former quarterbacks coach from the Senior Bowl last month Alex Redmond Jersey , but the team didn’t make the move official on Thursday.That meant it was the first chance for head coach Zac Taylor to talk about what Callahan’s role will be with the Bengals. Taylor will be calling the offensive plays and said that he’ll look to Callahan to share ideas gleaned from working with Gruden and Gary Kubiak as they put together the Bengals’ attack.“He’s been around a prolific offense in Denver and operated in similar systems that we did in L.A, so I think it will be a great blend of ideas and cohesion. It’s important to hire people challenging you,” Taylor said, via the Bengals website. “As the head coach, you get pulled in a lot of different directions. As the play caller you always need somebody to get you started in the right direction. I can speak through him to the staff when I’m not around those meetings. He needs to be a big idea guy. On game day I’ll be calling the plays, but it will be a collective effort with those guys. This is not all about me. It has to be about the whole group creating the game plan and coming through on game day.”With Marvin Lewis at the top of the coaching staff for 16 years, the Bengals have had a consistent approach for a long time. Whatever Taylor and Callahan come up with Bobby Hart Jersey , 2019 will be an entirely new look in Cincinnati. Even though the Bengals will have an offensive head coach for the first time in 17 years, Bleacher Report thinks the Bengals will pick 3 defenders in the first four rounds of the 2019 draft."The Bengals have gone in a new direction and hired a young, 35-year-old head coach this week. It is just a matter of weeks before he gets to start building out his brand new roster.Even though Zac Taylor is fresh off his job as the Rams’ quarterbacks coach, Bleacher Report had the Bengals taking four defensive players in their new 7-round mock draft.In his introductory press conference, Taylor mentioned that he was excited to build the offense around the pieces they already have. This is probably a good idea, considering offense’s skill position players are loaded with talent. In fact, the Bengals’ losing streak started when the defense fell to shambles. So it would make sense that the front office wants to target defenders.Cue Devin White.The linebacker from LSU has probably been the one draft prospect most linked with the Bengals. So it’s no surprise that BR had the Bengals taking him with their 11th overall pick.Here’s what they said:White would make a perfect first round pick if Deshaun Davis Cincinnati Bengals Jersey , like in BR’s mock, other great prospects like Houston’s Ed Oliver or Alabama’s Jonah Williams are off the board.If the Bengals address the linebacker spot in the draft, then their other prominent needs will be at tight end and the offensive line.So with White settling in comfortably in the middle of the defense, BR has the Bengals selecting Alabama tight end Irv Smith in the second round. In 15 games, Smith caught 44 passes for 710 yards and 7 touchdowns in the Crimson Tide’s 2018 season. Smith would be drafted to help a unit with three talented starters potentially becoming free agents in March.The only flaw in BR’s mock draft is that the Bengals don’t address the offensive line until Day 3, taking two lineman back-to-back in the fifth and sixth rounds. But, then again Deshaun Davis Jersey 2019 , there’s still free agency.Here’s how BR’s mock draft shakes out:(11) Devin White, LB, LSU(42) Irv Smith, TE, Alabama(72) Juan Thornhill, S, Virginia(103) Terry Beckner Jr. Color Rush Deshaun Davis Jersey , DL, MissouriNate Herbig, OG, StanfordOlisaemeka Udoh, OT, ElonSheldrick Redwine, CB Ryan Glasgow Jersey , Miami(Note: since the compensatory picks have not been announced, the order for the last three rounds is still up in the air. BR went with draft position for those and decided not to include the overall number because that will change before the draft.)Who would you like to see the Bengals take?
