2011 NFL Draft Selections (Before Draft Begins)
Bengals Draft Needs
QB, WR, RB, OT, OG, C, DE, SS, FS,
Rebuilding time for Bengals
Pick 4: Receiver A.J. Green
Big time potential but if Carson Palmer leaves the team, his overall production will go down the tubes if they can’t find a quality veteran quarterback. Chad Ochocinco and Terrell Owens aren’t expected back so Green will see consistent double teams if he starts to flash his skills at any point.
Green is the beginning of a new era in Cincinnati and it will be interesting to see how his career plays out.
Ovarall Draft Grade: B+
35. Quarterback Andy Dalton
Well it looks like the Carson Palmer era is over in Cincinnati after all as Andy Dalton will probably start right away for the Bengals. With A.J. Green and Dalton, this team will have a lot to learn and defenses like the Steelers and Ravens should benefit with big games against the Bengals this season.
66. Defensive Lineman Dontay Moch
Finally the Bengals help themselves on defense but this is going to be a rebuilding year for this team. Long way to go before they are ready to win again.
101. Offensive Lineman Clint Boling
134. Free Safety Robert Sands
167. Wide Receiver Ryan Whalen
207. Corner back Korey Lindsey
246. Running Back Jay Finley
