2010 NFL Draft Picks: Cincinnati Bengals Selections – Results
Throughout the three days of the NFL draft, we will be updating this page for the Cincinnati Bengals every night to give you analysis for the picks they took. On Thursday NFL teams will only select players in the first round of the draft. On Friday, they will all select their second and third round picks.
Saturday each team will finish of its draft by selecting players through rounds four to seven. Enjoy the draft and come back here later to see our take on players selected for the Cincinnati Bengals.
Before The Draft: I would expect the Bengals to draft a receiving tight end at some point in this draft to help Carson Palmer. Other than that this team will probably focus on defense as they could use up grades to continue their solid play.
21. Cincinnati Bengals: TE Jermaine Gresham – Carson Palmer needed another target in the passing game and Gresham fills that need. Now with Gresham, Ochocinco and Bryant, Palmer should be a decent fantasy option again.
54. Bengals Select: DE Carlos Dunlap - Nice addition for this growing Bengals defense. Dunlap should help apply pressure every week on opponents quarterbacks.
Rounds Three – Seven
Round 3. 84. Bengals: WR Jordan Shipley- Shipley makes for a very nice slot, Wes Welker type receiver for this team. Shipley was a very valuable receiver for Colt McCoy in the Texans offense and he will help Carson Palmer in 2010.
Round 3. 96. Bengals: CB Brandon Ghee Leon Hall and Jonathan Joseph are the starting corners in Cincinnati so Ghee makes for good depth on this team. They will need his services against the Ravens and Steelers.
Round 4, Pick 22 (120) Geno Atkins DT
Round 4, Pick 33 (131) Roddrick Muckelroy LB
Round 5, Pick 21 (152) Otis Hudson OG
Round 6, Pick 22 (191) Dezmon Briscoe WR
Round 7, Pick 21 (228) Reggie Stephens OL
