Cole: Bengals Get an A for Draft Picks

Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports is handing out his AFC and NFC grades for the draft – including the Bengals, which you can read about below.

Picks: CB Dre Kilpatrick, G Kevin Zeitler, DT Devon Still, WR Mohamed Sanu, DT Brandon Thompson, TE Orson Charles, CB Shaun Prater, WR Marvin Jones, SS George Iloka, RB Dan Herron.

Grade: A

Analysis:For the first time in a long time, the Bengals seemed to put a little emphasis on high character as the first four picks on this board all came with high grades in that respect. Kirkpatrick is tough and plays hard all the time. He genuinely loves the game. Same goes for Zeitler, Still and Sanu, who could be the best value of the first three rounds. Sanu is still developing as a receiver, but he could become an overwhelming talent. If there is one thing the Bengals do well in the second, third and later rounds, it’s find good wide receivers.
