Losses: WR T.J. Houshmandzadeh, LT Stacy Andrews, S Dexter Jackson.
First-round projection: The Cincinnati Bengals will have several options, but the one that makes the most sense is getting a tackle to protect Carson Palmer. Alabama's Andre Smith lost his luster at the combine, and he'll have to mature quickly, but he would fill a huge hole left by the departure of Andrews.
Other scenarios: After losing Houshmandzadeh, the Bengals need receivers. Laveranues Coles, a free-agent addition, is a short-term answer. Sooner or later, the team has to get serious about rebuilding the defense. This could be the year.
