With the 17th pick in the 2012 NFL Draft the Cincinnati Bengals select:
David DeCastro, Offensive Guard, Stanford
The Bengals need a lot of help on the defensive side of the ball. Due to this and the loss of their top CB Jonathan Joseph last year, Corner Back is the obvious choice. There are 2 very solid corners available still, Janoris Jenkins and Stephan Gilmore and because of that I think the Bengals will wait. They have 2 picks in the first round, #17 and #21. None of the teams at # 18, 19, or 20 looks set to take a corner so If I'm the Bengals I sure up my other glaring need which is interior offensive line. DeCastro has somehow dropped to #17 and the Bengals are chomping at the bit because of their good fortune. Lest we forget, they will then get their top flight Corner 3 picks later. Good Day for the Cincinnati Bengals.
The San Diego Super Chargers are now on the clock.
