Everyone expected the Bengals to use their second-round pick on a quarterback, and everyone was right.
TCU quarterback Andy Dalton has gone to the Bengals, 35th overall. Cincinnati has pegged Dalton as its franchise quarterback of the future — and maybe the present, considering that Carson Palmer is insisting he won’t be back in Cincinnati.
After taking wide receiver A.J. Green fourth overall on Monday, the Bengals have a good idea what their passing game will look like for years to come.
Although Dalton has plenty of room to grow as a passer, he was a four-year starter at TCU who led the team to a 42-7 record. The Bengals can only hope he’s that kind of winner at the next level.
