On the second day of the 2012 NFL Draft, the Cincinnati Bengals selected defensive tackle Devon Still from Penn State, wide receiver Mohamed Sanu from Rutgers and defensive tackle Brandon Thompson from Clemson.
The 6-foot-5, 305-pound Still – who was projected as a late first-round pick by some – was taken in the second round by the Bengals with the No. 53 overall selection. The Bengals are well-stocked at DT with Domata Peko, Geno Atkins and Pat Sims, but I’m all about BPA (best player available) and Still was a solid pick.
Sanu (6-2, 211) was widely projected as a second-round pick, but the Bengals got him in the third round (No. 83 overall). He will likely open his rookie season as a starting wideout opposite A.J. Green, who turned in a Pro-Bowl season as a rookie last year. With their final pick of the third round (No. 93 overall), Cincinnati selected Thompson, who is a nose-guard type at 6-foot-2, 311 pounds. I personally think running back Lamar Miller from Miami should have...

Penn State's defensive end is Still available after round one
Ted Thompson has to select both an outside linebacker and a defensive end early in this draft. One down and one to go. First round pick Nick Perry will be an instant upgrade opposite Clay Matthews, but the Packers are still woefully lacking talent on the defensive line. Fortunately, there are a number of quality...
The phone call came from a number that Mohamed Sanu recognized, the tip-off that this one was real - and, in a sense, the most fitting call of draft day.

The Bengals got a receiver with their first pick in the third round of the draft, taking Rutgers' Mohamed Sanu.
Sanu thought the Bengals had drafted him in the first round on Thursday night, when Cincinnati was getting ready to make the 27th pick and someone called his phone and said they were from the Bengals. It was someone playing a prank.
