Cincinnati Bengals Select A.J. Green With Fourth Overall Pick

With the fourth pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, the Cincinnati Bengals selected Georgia wide receiver A.J. Green.

It's no surprise here as Green has been mocked to Cincinnati for almost the entire pre-draft season, so score another for the mockers. Green's been the class of this year's wide receiver class and could be a tool to make disgruntled Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer happy.

A.J. Green is 6'4'' and 211 pounds with great hands and signals the end of Terrell Owens in Cincinnati and maybe Chad Ochocinco too. Whether Palmer retires or not, Green will headline a young crop of wide receivers in Cincinnati for whomever wants to throw it to him and his new teammates - such as Jordan Shipley and Jermaine Grisham. I like the pick, it fills a need and makes sense for the Cincinnati Bengals who are looking to rebound from a rough season and return to the playoffs in 2011.
