2012 NFL Draft: TST Community Round 1, Pick 17

Whiteout picked Jonathan Martin for the Jets this morning. In an effort to speed up the process, Ramsfanindia, fearless leader of the Bengals, selects:

Lamar Miller, RB, Miami

Pick Grade:

B

"The Bengals need a new RB and Miller is a fast and explosive one who can spice up the offense. At this pick, both Richardson and DeCastro are gone, and nobody else requires a selection here except maybe Dre Kirkpatrick, who the Bengals do not need. Lamar Miller is the best option on the board."

Analysis after the jump!

This is a tough call. I personally think the Bengals could use a young corner, given that most of their corners are approaching 30 (or older). I think Dre would be a good value pick here, but I can certainly understand why the team would look for a running back.

The question I have here is whether or not Lamar Miller is a good pick for the middle of the 1st round. There is quite a chance he could go this high, but given the fact that RB's seem to have dropped off a cliff in terms of value, it's a little sketchy.

Check out the full schedule or take a glance at the big board (thanks db!) to get even more drafty goodness.
