Cincinnati Bengals Draft History

With the NFL Draft upcoming this weekend, (Be sure to see the NKYSportsWorld Mock Draft) We have been spending a lot of time debating where the Bengals should go with their #6 pick in the draft. I wanted to take a look back at how the Bengals have fared with their top three draft picks. If you look at the production of just the Top 3 picks in the draft they have really struggled finding talent in the early rounds. So I caution Bengals fans not to get too hung up on fixing all of the issues with this draft as it may not happen.
