Winners, losers from Day 2
Plenty of talent still remained as teams kicked off the second day of drafting. Chad Reuter recaps who made out like bandits and who really whiffed. More ...
It's hard not to love what the Bengals have done in this draft. (It doesn't hurt when you have five picks in the first three rounds).
Defensive tackles Devon Still (No. 53) and Brandon Thompson (No. 93) both can be added to the Bengals' deep defensive line group. Coordinator Mike Zimmer does a great job rotating linemen and developing them. Carlos Dunlap, Michael Johnson and Geno Atkins are all similar players to Still in that they were big names who fell on draft day before the Bengals picked them. Zimmer will coach them up.
Owner/general manager Mike Brown also hasn't ignored giving quarterback Andy Dalton help. Mohamed Sanu is an intelligent receiver to add to the mix, and fourth-round tight end Orson Charles was a steal. Charles played with A.J. Green in college and ideally can be the Aaron Hernandez to Jermaine Gresham's Rob Gronkowski.
This is a team built to last.
