The guys over at CincinnatiSports.com have compiled a list of players that they believe would make excellent Cincinnati Bengals next season. Chris Henry approves. Our favorites are the two boys from Tennessee. Not just because they're Volunteers, but because each of them have three names.

Joseph Lee Smith (pictured), a 6-6 tight end, was dismissed by coach Phil Fulmer after he was arrested for DUI on campus. Incredibly, Smith was also at the center of a sex and grade-tampering scandal dating to his high school days at the time of his dismissal. The second Vol is quarterback Jim Bob Cooter, who, besides having the coolest name in the SEC, was also hit up with a DUI after driving on the wrong side of the road.

The Big11Ten had one prospect - Jack Ikegwuonu, who with his brother Bill, a safety at Northern Illinois, formed the Flyin' Ikegwuonu Brothers, world-famous 2nd gen console thieves.
