To casual football fans, the Cincinnati Bengals are probably best known for missing the playoffs in 14 consecutive seasons, with nary a winning season in the mix.

One of the biggest reasons the Bengals went through such a long postseason drought – from 1991 through 2004 – is due to bad (or unlucky) selections in the NFL Draft.

The Bengals certainly did not miss with this first-round pick, as the USC product was arguably the best player at
