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 been the pick there. The team has plenty of D-tackles, but still needs a true speed threat at running back. (Unless you think Bernard Scott is good, which I don’t. I used to think he was, but do no longer.)
