+ According to one draft expert earlier this week, the Cincinnati Bengals are one of two teams from the AFC North with “strong interest” in Boise State running back Doug Martin as a possible first-round selection. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not a Martin-hater. He’s a talented running back that, according to most meteorologists, has most of the enduring attributes to succeed in the National Football League. At the same time, and this is nothing new, I openly resist the idea of drafting a running back in the first round.
