In certain professional sports organizations, specific people have insider knowledge that many other beat writers and members of the media aren't privy to obtaining. Former Cincinnati Bengals offensive lineman and current radio color analyst Dave Lapham appears to be that guy. With some very specific examples over the past few years, it is becoming more and more apparent that the Bengals trust "Lap" with inside information. Take a look at the last two drafts, for instance. Lapham participated in a mock draft with Bengals.com editor last year and seemingly pulled his pick out of left field with tight end Tyler Eifert. Most scoffed at the idea of another first round pick on a tight end, but Lap knew what he was talking about, wasn't he? As if that wasn't enough, Lapham told ESPN 1530 host, Lance McAlister about a few targets over the final two days of the draft for the Bengals.
