The NFL Draft has been uncharacteristically kind to the Cincinnati Bengals in recent years, something the team hopes will continue in April as they look to build on an impressive 2011 season.

Cincy looks to have struck gold last year with the selection of standout rookie WR A.J. Green at No. 4 overall, followed by Rookie of the Year candidate QB Andy Dalton at No. 35. The dynamic duo helped propel the Bengals from 4-12 a year ago to 9-7 in 2011, culminating in a surprise playoff berth.
